Broomfield has plenty still to offer
Broomfield House on 130ac located at Slane, Co Meath was withdrawn from auction last week, but a 30ac section of the land was since sold by private treaty for more than €300,000.
Situated three miles from Slane and 11 miles from Navan, the house is described by auctioneer Thomas Potterton as an attractive, modern, four -bedroom, two-storey structure.
The yard contains a wide range of farm buildings, including five loose boxes along with a series of loose sheds and lean-tos.
The yard has accommodation for up to 150 cattle and housing for up to 700 ewes.
The land, described as top quality tillage ground, is currently under a crop of spring corn and enjoys extensive road frontage on to two roads.
A decent attendance showed for the auction and the sale began when the farm was offered in lots.
Lot one, including the house and yard on 53.5ac, attracted no bids.
