An elevated 46ac non-residential tillage farm has just come on the market in north Co Dublin.
Located just over a mile from The Naul in the heart of Dublin's tillage country, the property is for sale by private treaty with a guide price of €12,000/ac.
Eamon O'Flaherty of Maynooth agents Property Partners Brady describes the farm as one principal division with excellent views over the surrounding countryside.
It is currently in stubble and overlooks The Naul water reservoir.
The property's irregular shape has about 300 yards in road frontage and comes with restricted planning permission for the construction of a 3,500sq ft residence.
Mr O'Flaherty believes the farm will have a broad appeal given its size and location.
"The farm is ideal for neighbouring farmers wishing to increase their acreage or indeed for a person seeking a location to construct a country house in a delightful rural setting within 20 minutes of the M50 and Dublin Airport," he said.
While the guide price is reflective of what is being paid for land in this area, it will be interesting to see what this property will command.
Further north in Co Meath an 85ac farm that is mainly in tillage with a smaller portion in grass is on the market with a guide price of €760,000 or €9,000/ac.
Located between Warrenstown and Drumree, the holding is 6km from Dunshaughlin and 7km from Batterstown.
Laid out in a number of well-drained, large divisions, the tillage portion is surrounded by natural hedging and trees.
To the rear, about 15ac of the lands are in grass and bounded by a river.
While road frontage is limited to two access points from the main road, there is a farm roadway running the length of the holding.
According to Celia Lamb, the lands are suitable for any kind of farming and the property, with the appropriate planning, could also provide a site for a house.
