Dublin farm stirs Northern interest
Dublin, 105ac + outbuildings. Guide: $10,000 - 12,000/ac
A 105ac holding in the prime tillage country of north Co Dublin has attracted interest from north of the Border. Located in the townsland of Hayestown, College Farm is about 20km from Balbriggan and less than 1km from the M1 motorway.
The land is laid out in one block and is described as excellent ground by auctioneer Evan Lonergan, of selling agents HT Meagher O'Reilly.
The farm, which goes to auction tomorrow, also has 1.4km of frontage onto three separate roads.
A traditional farmyard with extensive buildings is located in the northwest corner of the holding. These include a six-bay haybarn and lean-to, a double span, six-bay machinery shed and a five-span, open-fronted shed, together with several stone outhouses.
The land is laid out in seven fields that slope gently from the north. Mature hedgerows make up most of the field boundaries.
While the land has been in tillage for the past few years, it would also make an ideal grassland holding.
The farm has been let for a few years but has been well looked after and it is in great condition, Mr Lonergan said.
The land is being offered in the entire on in two lots. Lot one comprises 48ac and the farmyard, lot two is made up of 57ac, while lot three is the entire.
