Georgian four-bed set on 96ac has great potential

Ronnie Bellew

THE seven figure mark could well be exceeded for a substantial farm and period residence which has just come on the market in Wexford at a guide price of €10,000 per acre.

Located at Farroe, Newbawn – approximately 10 miles from New Ross and 16 miles from Wexford town – the 96 acre holding is situated in prime farming country and offers multiple opportunities for prospective buyers.

Currently all in grassland, the farm is split into two divisions and consists of seven fields ranging in size from 11 to 21ac.

The holding is bordered on one side by a large tillage farm and is also adjacent to a noted stud farm.


Selling agent Eric Fenlon, of Patrick Fenlon & Co in Taghmon, says the farm has been let for some years and the land would require some development.

However the auctioneer believes it offers a rare opportunity for local farmers looking to expand their tillage and livestock operations.

The location and quality of the land should also make it an attractive proposition for anyone with bloodstock connections.

The 19th century, two-storey, four-bed residence that comes with the farm requires renovation, but Mr Fenlon describes it as a lovely house with many of its original features intact.

It is situated in the middle of the holding, but potential buyers could redevelop it as a stand-alone property.
