Hobby farm close to capital hits the market
A property that would make an ideal hobby farming within striking distance of the capital is coming to market by auction, writes Jim O'Brien.
Centred around a neo-Georgian house on 28ac, the holding is located at Rathregan, Batterstown in Co Meath and is guided at €1.12m.
Situated 2km from the M3 Motorway, the house and lands are 5.8km from Dunshaughlin and 25km from Dublin.
Phillip Byrne of selling agents REA Coonans Maynooth says the two-storey over-basement house was built in 1990 to an original Georgian design. Set in landscaped gardens, the house is approached by electric gates and a gravel driveway. The accommodation includes a sitting room with an Adams fireplace, dining room with a cast-iron fireplace, a fully fitted kitchen and a full-height basement that is home to a games room, office and garage.
The lands are all in grass with road frontage on to the Dublin-Batterstown road.
The property can be bought as an entire or in lots with the house on 11ac guided at €950,000 and the remaining 17ac guided at €10,000 an acre.
The auction by REA Coonans and joint agents Foley Auctioneers, Dunshaughlin, will be held at the Glenroyal Hotel, Maynooth at 3pm on Thursday, June 1.
