There will be much local interest in the executor sale of an 87ac residential farm at Borris in Co Carlow. The property, which has access to mountain commonage, comes to auction with a guide price of €440,000.

Located a mile from Rathanna the holding is six miles from Borris, 10 miles from Goresbridge and 13 miles from Bagenalstown.

The land is described by Castlecomer auctioneer Joseph Coogan as fine grazing ground with plenty of road frontage and water supplied by a private well and a natural stream.

The residence is a two storey traditional farmhouse in need of renovation. The accommodation includes a kitchen, sitting room, and three bedrooms. There are extensive farm buildings including a four-span slatted shed, two round-roof sheds, and a large free-standing sheep shed.

The farm can be bought as an entire or in lots with the house, yard and 55ac making up one lot. This portion has the major part of the road frontage and comes with a guide price of €300,000. A second lot comprising 28ac with a right of way to the public road is described as suitable for grazing or planting. This is guided at €100,000.

The third lot is a 4ac plot with frontage to the public road and site potential. The guide price for this is €20,000. The final lot is a one-eighteenth share of 1,636ac of commonage and this too is guided at €20,000.

The farm will be sold by public auction on Friday, March 6 at 3pm at The Step House Hotel, Borris, Co Carlow
