Parcel of 22-year-old mixed spruce forestry available separately for €100,000
In view of the top prices being paid for Leinster land of late, a range of properties across the province are coming to auction in the next few weeks with conservative price estimates from €8,000/ac to €12,000/ac.
This Thursday, June 2, Murtagh Bros are selling an 84ac non-residential farm at Corry, Rathowen, Co Westmeath in an online auction.
The property includes 58.5ac of grazing ground with a range of farm buildings and a parcel of 25.5ac of forestry.
The entire is guided at €600,000.
Located 16km west of Mullingar and 1.6km off the N4 Sligo road, the holding will be sold in two lots or as an entire.
The 58.5ac is laid out in eight fields of good grazing ground fenced by traditional hedgerow. It has limited road frontage but enough for a site or two.
The yard is made up of a four-column haybarn with a double-breasted, slatted lean-to that includes a feeding passage.
There is also a standalone four-column dry shed, a number of other storage buildings, cattle-handling facilities and a derelict house.
This portion is guided at €500,000.
The 25.5ac of mixed spruce forestry was planted 22 years ago and, while out of premium, the mature timber will be valuable.
Guided at €100,000, the parcel is accessed by right of way through the 58.5ac portion and bounds the River Inny at the rear.
The holding will be sold at online auction on the LSL platform at 3pm this Thursday, May 2.
A 54ac parcel of roadside grazing ground at Moranstown, Ballynacargy in Co Westmeath is facing the auctioneer’s gavel with a guide price of €450,000.
Described by Dillon Murtagh as “a good solid farm in need of some TLC”, the place is 800m from the village of Ballynacargy, and 16km from Mullingar.
Divided into 11 small fields fenced by hedgerow, it comes with a three-column bedded cattle shed, cattle-handling facilities and water supplied from a private well. There are no entitlements.
According to the auctioneer the farm is in a good beef-rearing locality where land is renowned for its fattening capacity.
