Midland farms with plenty of potential
A 52AC farm on elevated ground with views over three counties is expected to fetch €440,000 on the market.
Two properties, one from Longford and another from Westmeath will be auctioned under the gavel of Meathman, Raymond Potterton later this month.
First up is a 52ac farm at Cloghernal, Granard, Longford.
Described by Stephen Barry of Pottertons as "an absolutely unique traditional farm in lovely scenic countryside" the property is laid out in one block with extensive road frontage and includes a derelict traditional two storey farmhouse.
Located 3km from Granard, 25km from Cavan and 24km from Longford, the property comes to auction with a guide price of €440,000 or almost €8,500/ac.
The lands are in top quality old pasture and laid out in a number of fields all with mature hedgerows that provide excellent shelter.
The farm has not been ploughed in living memory and while more recently used for the harvesting of silage and hay it was previously a grazing farm for sheep and cattle.
"This is a completely unspoiled farm of high quality ground suitable for all agricultural uses," Mr Barry said.
