A traditional style farm with agri-tourism potential has come on the market in Westmeath with a guide price of €275,000.

This 55ac property is located at Annagh, The Pigeons, on the Longford/Westmeath border, 15km from Athlone and 8km from Ballymahon.

Auctioneers James L Murtagh are offering the holding for sale by auction in three lots (26ac, 29ac and the entire).

The lands are laid out in neat manageable divisions and are under permanent pasture. Outbuildings include a two-bay shed, cow byre and a store.

Auctioneer Padraic Murtagh says the land has been farmed traditionally for many years and it would benefit from reseeding.

The house, comprising kitchen, dining area, sitting room, utility, three bedrooms and a bathroom, has not been lived in for some time and is in need of refurbishment.

"The property offers immense potential as it is located in a sought-after residential area close to nearby tourist attractions, including Lough Ree, Centre Parc Longford and Newcastle Woods," said Mr Murtagh. "It is an ideal property for a small agri-tourism business."

The auction will take place in Cooney's Hotel, Ballymahon, Co Longford, on Friday, July 19 at 3pm.
