A 137ac residential farm at Ballingarry in North Tipperary was withdrawn from auction last week having been bid to €1.65m. It was guided pre-auction at €1.75m

The property includes a four-bedroom two-storey farmhouse and a stone farm building completely renovated into a mews in 2006.

The yards include a stable-yard, a grain yard and a livestock yard and are home to an array of top-class buildings.

The buildings are finished to high specifications with housing suitable for any livestock or tillage operation. There is slatted accommodation for 160 cattle and other loose accommodation.

The yard also has a 50-tonne weighbridge and a 60,000 litre water storage tank.

The land is all in one block with 1km of road frontage on to the N52. It is serviced by hardcore internal roadways with top class fencing for cattle and sheep. It is firm, dry, fertile land with up to 65ac in tillage, 64.5ac in grass and 7.5ac in woodlands.

Auctioneer Ger O'Toole opened proceedings when he accepted a bid of €1.2m.

Three bidders engaged and the bidding moved slowly reaching €1.4m and at that point the auctioneer consulted with the vendors.

Returning to the room the price rose to €1.5m and with two bidders remaining in contention it went to €1.65m when it was withdrawn.

Mr O'Toole is in active negotiations with the highest bidder and is hoping to get the sale over the line in the next few days.
