Arklow 100ac packed with potential
A 100ac residential farm with arable potential on the Wicklow/Wexford border will draw much interest from all elements of the farming sector in the locality.
Located between Arklow and Coolgraney, the property comes with a traditional farmhouse and outbuildings. It goes to auction on July 19 and has a guide price of €1.5m or €15,000/ac.
According to Pat O'Neill of Ashford Auctions Ltd, the farm is mainly under grass, although 4.5ac is under a crop of maize.
He says the holding has great potential as a tillage farm while, at the moment, the major part of the land, 70ac around the house, is being rented by a neighbouring dairy farmer.
The holding is conveniently located on the outskirts of Arklow town, immediately off the M11 motorway and close to the Arklow south exit.
The holding is in a number of natural divisions, with the house, outbuildings and 71ac being together as a unit. Away from the homestead there are three separate divisions made up of a 4.5ac piece, which is under maize, an 18ac parcel of grassland and a 7ac parcel of grassland.
The farm will be sold in lots as per these divisions.
