VIDEO: Stunning 140 acre beef farm hits the market with top class facilities for finishing cattle
A top class residential farm set on 140 acres of land has hit the market in Wexford.
Situated just over a mile from the village of Taghmon in Wexford the land is almost entirely set out in one block that features six primary divisions and is guided at €1.7m.
Indeed, one of the fields extends to 63 acres and this is subdivided into three paddocks. Another comprises c.28 acres, while there is a 16 acre field located adjacent to the yard.
The land is level, currently in grass and is extremely well fenced. All fields contain large troughs that are piped with water from a private well.
There is also a natural water course which runs along two boundaries.
The farmyard, which can be independently accessed from the road, features a range of slatted and loose-bedded housing.
These include an eight-bay cattle shed that contains two large loose-bedded divisions which are fronted by a covered slatted easy feed.
This shed is fully fitted with calving pens, an indoor cattle crush and a handling area, and can accommodate up to 150 cattle.
There is also a three-bay slatted shed, a machinery shed, a bull pen, seven stables and a three-bay round-roof shed with two adjoining lean-tos used to store hay and straw.
The yard also incorporates a large concrete area to store silage bales, a concrete dungstead with an adjoining effluent tank, extensive outdoor handling facilities and a large feed bin.
Surrounding the yard are three small stud-railed paddocks that would be ideal to graze young stock.
Approached by a short, graveled driveway, the bungalow residence was built about 40 years ago and is well maintained throughout.
The accommodation comprises a living room, kitchen/dining area, utility, office, bathroom and four bedrooms (one en suite). Outside, there are mature, well stocked gardens.
