Farmer interest strong for 165ac site in Wicklow
A SUBSTANTIAL holding just outside Arklow is attracting real farmer interest, the selling agents have revealed.
Located on the outskirts of Arklow, the 165ac holding at Johnstown, Co Wicklow, comes with road and sea frontage.
However, auctioneer Simon Stokes, of North's Property, says the property is of purely agricultural interest, although a new owner may wish to build a house on the site.
Included in the sale is a dilapidated house and a range of outbuildings.
The property has a disclosed reserve of €900,000 and is being offered in one lot at auction on August 26.
"The interest is mainly from local farmers, although there have been a few inquiries from farmers from outside the area," Mr Stokes said.
"It's a decent block of land which has been let in recent years for tillage and grass.
