An 89ac residential farm at Bellinter, Navan, near the Hill of Tara is described by auctioneer John Harrington as "a beautiful place."

The farm and its modern farmyard is for sale by public auction with a guide price of €900,000 or around €10,000/ac.

Located 8km from Navan and 4km from junction 7 on the M3, the property is set on an elevated site overlooking the River Boyne close to the Royal Tara Golf Club and Bellinter House.

The bungalow residence is a solid building of its time with accommodation that includes an entrance hall, sitting room, kitchen, four bedrooms, a bathroom and toilet.

The relatively modern farmyard consists of a three-bay hay shed with a double lean-to, three-bay cattle shed, slatted lean-to shed, cattle crush and pen, silage and slurry pits, and a concrete yard. The land is serviced by a farm road and has 373m frontage to the River Boyne and 250m of road frontage. It is described as top quality grazing ground that is all in grass and in good heart.

The farm will be offered for sale in lots or as an entire with the first lot comprised of the house and yard on 45ac. Lot two is 44ac of land, while the last lot consists of the entire.

Auctioneer John Harrington expects huge interest in the property. "It is without doubt one of the nicest farms I have brought to market in recent times," he said.

The auction will be held at the Smith Harrington salesrooms, Navan at 3pm on Tuesday, June 10.
