Compact holding in Cavan with lots of potential
A 23-acre residential farm which might even tempt Paddy Reilly back to Ballyjamesduff has come on the market 9kms from the the Co Cavan town immortalised in Percy French's ballad.
Auctioneer Stephen Barry of Pottertons said the property would be ideal for a young farmer starting up or someone interested in running a modest equestrian enterprise.
"The guide price of €180,000 is very competitive and the farm is comfortable. It's big enough to stretch your legs but not so big as to break your back," said Mr Barry.
The farm at Bogeskey near New Inn is well laid out in sheltered divisions set out entirely in grass and suitable for livestock and equine enterprises.
It has been rented out for the past few years and previously it ran cattle and sheep and was used for silage purposes.
The house has four bedrooms, two reception rooms is described as "sound and comfortable". The farmyard contains a number of stone barns and a three-span hayshed in a good state of repair.
This is an executor's sale and viewing can be arranged through solicitors Patrick J Cusack of Ballyjamesduuff.
Mr Barry said there has been interest shown in the farm which will go under the hammer in the Potterton salesrooms in Navan on Tuesday, July 7 at 3pm.
