Compact holdings on the market in Sligo
Two upcoming executor sales in Sligo are expected to attract the attention of buyers from the Sligo/Mayo border country and beyond. The residential properties include a farm on 30ac at Ballincurry, Curry, while the other comprises a cottage on 9ac located at nearby Bunnacranagh. The holdings are in the parish of Curry on the N17 between Tubbercurry and Charlestown.
The residential farm at Ballincurry is guided at €130,000 and includes a hip-roofed bungalow residence and farm outbuildings on 30ac. Auctioneer James Kilcoyne describes the house as a decent building with central heating and PVC double glazed windows but the place could do with further modernisation. The accommodation includes an entrance hall, kitchen/dining room, sitting room, utility room, four bedrooms and a bathroom.
The farm buildings are traditional and include a small cattle shed with a lean-to and a two-bay, block-built shed. The land is described by Mr Kilcoyne as made up of 10ac of mixed land, 6ac of excellent ground and another 10ac of softer rushy ground that comes with 4ac of active bog.
At auction the farm will be offered as an entire or in a series of lots. The bungalow and outbuildings on 0.96ac make up one lot, while a 9.82ac parcel of mixed ground forms the second, with a 5.73ac piece described as the best of ground making up a third lot. Together the three lots can be bought as a 16.5ac unit. A final lot is comprised of 9.52ac of rushy grass, part bog together with 3.98ac of active bog.
The auction takes place at Yeats County Inn Hotel, Curry, Co Sligo on Friday April 15, 2016, at 3pm.
The second property to be sold at the same sale is a country cottage on 9.67ac at Bunnacranagh and Cloonlaughil, Curry, Co Sligo guided at €75,000.
This cottage together with a series of old outbuildings is on 8.23ac of good quality lands. The holding includes 1.44 acres of active bog situated at Cloonlaughil.
