A property that could tempt back a latter day Paddy Reilly
The Cross of Finea features in the famous Percy French ballad calling Paddy Reilly back to Ballyjamesduff.
There is indeed something magical in the name of this place that marks the crossroads between Leinster and Ulster.
Not far away at Castletown Lower, Castletown, Finea, Co Westmeath is a lovely 59ac residential farm with a bungalow residence in good condition. It comes to auction in an executor sale next week with a guide price of €435,000.
Located 11km from Castlepollard and 2km from Finea, the house is a 1979 bungalow set on an elevated site.
It comprises four bedrooms, a sitting room, living room, a fitted kitchen, bathroom, utility/shower room and front hall.
Jennifer Walsh, of local selling agents Sherry FitzGerald Davitt and Davitt, described the house as being in very good condition.
While in need of some minor cosmetic improvements, it is perfectly habitable and comes with modern conveniences and central heating. The property has mature gardens and is serviced by its own well.
