Farms lined up as major attractions in bumper auction
TWO farms are among a giant public auction of 70 properties due to take place on Friday, April 30.
The Real Estate Alliance auction will include 44 residential and 26 commercial properties -- a total of €21m in property will go under the hammer at the Shelbourne Hotel, Dublin.
The highest priced lot of the auction will be a state-of-the-art home on a 1.2ac site in Galway city, previously valued at €3.3m in 2007. It now has an AMV of €1.5m.
The lowest priced lot is a residential site on the old Crumlin Road in Dublin, which has an AMV of €85,000.
Meath-based auctioneer Thomas Potterton is handling the sale of one of the entered farms.
The 81ac holding is at Hightown, Coralstown, close to Kinnegad, Co Westmeath.
The non-residential plot is less than five miles from Kinnegad and lies between the main N4 Dublin/ Mullingar road and the main N6 Kinnegad/Galway road.
The land is divided into six fields, with access to a natural water supply, and the boundary consists of mature trees and hedging.
