A 20.5ac residential holding at Nobber, Co Meath sold under the hammer for its guide of €300,000. Located one mile from the north Meath village, the farm came with a two-storey farmhouse that had been tastefully refurbished. The residence boasts all modern conveniences and a traditional-style courtyard farmyard that has a range of well-kept sheds.

When the property came to auction last week it attracted up to four interested customers but when it came to the bidding two local farmers dominated.

The auction opened at €200,000 and the price on offer moved quickly up the scale in bids of €20,000. At €280,000, matters slowed somewhat as bids of €5,000 brought the price to €290,000, whereupon it was put on the market and sold at €300,000.

The residence includes three bedrooms, a bathroom, sitting room, family room and a modern kitchen with tiled floor. The farm buildings include eight stables, a three-bay hayshed with lean-to, cow byre and a cattle crush.

The land is all in grass and laid out in three divisions separated by traditional hedgerows. The auction was handled by Navan-based auctioneer John Harrington. Carty Auction Rooms, Nobber, were joint agents in the sale.
