Lissadyra House is an unusual property. The four-bedroom house is located in the heart of the town of Tuam and yet it has 33ac of farmland adjoining.

The house and farm are to be sold by private treaty and the property comes with a guide price of €650,000.

The residence is in top class condition, local auctioneer Martin Tyrell said, with accommodation that includes four spacious bedrooms, a fully fitted kitchen, sunroom, sitting room, utility, two bathrooms and a wet room. The house, which is accessed by a gravel driveway and stands on well-maintained lawns, is fitted with central heating and PVC windows and doors.

The lands are set in one block adjoining the residence.

Described by Mr Tyrell as consisting of good grazing ground, the farm is laid out in a number of well fenced fields, each of which has piped water. The property has no road frontage.

While the residential market and the development sectors might be quiet at the moment, Mr Tyrell is confident of plenty of takers for the farm, given that it is located in the heart of the town.

Meanwhile, Mr Tyrell has also been appointed selling agent for 17ac of land adjacent to the mart at Athenry, Co Galway.

Set out in one large field and two smaller divisions, the land is part of a large, well run farming enterprise on the outskirts of Athenry. The sale is guided at €12,000/ac.
