Final flurry of sales to round off midlands auction season
Three fine parcels of Westmeath ground are coming to auction next month.
Padraic Murtagh of James L Murtagh auctioneers, Mullingar is hoping the looming season of goodwill will permeate the auction rooms and deliver an early Christmas present.
The first parcel goes for sale on Thursday, December 7. The 36ac residential farm is located at Hickinstown, Delvin and guided at €300,000 or over €8,300/ac.
Situated on the N52 Mullingar to Dundalk road the property is 3km from Delvin and 16km from Mullingar. It has extensive frontage on to the N52 where the main entrance is located. There is also frontage and access from a side road to a lower portion of the land.
The dwelling is a two-bedroom bungalow in need of attention and extension but its presence on the property is significant from a planning point of view
The house is surrounded by a series of traditional farm buildings in need of complete refurbishment.
While the land is made up of good grazing ground it is in need of attention. It is fine level territory in three fields bounded by some broadleaf forestry. The fences in traditional hedgerow need some tidying.
It was a wet day when we visited the holding but even in the rain one could see the potential of the place. The location is also an advantage being close to Delvin and bounding the N52, one of the most important arteries in the country.
