‘Hearty’ ground in north Dublin - 203ac block of land guided at €10,000/ac
Moorepark Farm at Garristown in north Dublin is a 203ac block of land typical of the large farms on the market at the moment. The sale is being guided pre auction at €10,000/ac.
Located 4km from Garristown, 12kms from Ashbourne and 15km from Swords the holding (pictured above) is all in one block with road frontage on to three roads giving plenty of access. With the necessary permission the lands should have good site potential.
The farm is laid out in a combination of large and small fields and while most of the ground is under grass there is a portion in winter wheat.
The ground is in great heart, according to auctioneer Thomas Potterton, having been well rotated between tillage and grass over the years. Mr Potterton describes the land as fit for any use, for tillage beef or dairying.
Fencing is provided by traditional hedgerow and a meandering stream running through the property provides an endless supply of water.
Drinking troughs servicing the land are supplied from a mains supply and in terms of other services there is a limited yard comprised of a four-column hayshed with a lean-to at either side.
Given the range of access points available to the holding it will be offered for sale in a number of lots. The first to be offered will be a parcel of 107ac with dual road frontage.
This parcel comes with the farm buildings and is mainly in permanent pasture aside from two fields under tillage.
