A 55.5ac Monaghan farm that includes an old mill and a three bedroom bungalow in need of refurbishment is on the market with a guide price of €325,000.

Located at Drumbrean, Aghabog the farm is 1.5km off the Ballybay-Clones road, 5km from Swanns Cross, 2km from Aghabog and less than 10km from Monaghan town.

The house is a three-bedroom bungalow built in the 1970s and while structurally sound it is in need of complete refurbishment. According to Theola Heatrick of Larmer Property Consultants, the land is of mixed quality and laid out in a number of divisions with good boundaries, stock proof fencing, a constant water supply and extensive road frontage on to three roads. With the requisite planning permission the road-facing lands could have some site potential

There is a range of out-offices around the bungalow including the former farmhouse that has been converted for storage along with two galvanised hay barns in good condition and the remains of a smaller dwelling. There are also some cattle handling facilities.

Among the outbuildings is a lovely old stone-built corn mill formerly 'Doapey Mill' that is currently in poor condition. The mill is at the eastern end of the farm and separate to the main farm yard.

The holding could do with work but in terms of the land and the buildings it has plenty of potential. It is well laid out with the house and yards at the heart of the holding while there is easy access to major roads being only 10km from Monaghan town. The extensive road frontage may deliver site potential while the lands are made up of good productive ground. The property is currently under offer at €300,000.
