Handsome 410ac holding in grassland and forestry meets reserve of €2.15m
There's good movement in the auction rooms at the moment, with bigger holdings selling during or soon after the auctions.
On the Irish market they rarely come bigger than Ginnets Park, near Trim, a 410ac residential farm in grassland and forestry, with substantial equine and livestock facilities.
The property was withdrawn from auction at €2m and sold immediately after for its reserve of €2,150,000.
Located 2km from Summerhill, Co Meath, the farm is in two separate parts and was offered for sale as such, with the house and 260ac in one lot and 150ac of mainly woodland some 1.3km away in a second lot.
There are substantial buildings with the 260ac. The house, a 19th-century construction, was recently used as a temporary home by Meath Co Council. And while it will take some effort to 'domesticate' the building, it is in sound structural condition.
The accommodation includes an entrance hall, library, drawing room, dining room, breakfast room and kitchen. The sleeping accommodation extends to five bedrooms, three of which are en suite.
Adjoining the main house is the steward's lodgings consisting of three bedrooms, a sitting room, bathroom and kitchen.
A gate lodge on the property is in need of complete repair.
