Midlands farm on 155ac comes with three-bed stone cottage

Roscommon auctioneer John Earley is handling the sale of a 155ac residential farm located between Roscommon town and Athlone.

The sale is being guided at €850,000, or just below €5,500/ac.

The property currently has a bid of €750,000 on it.

Located seven miles from Athlone and four miles from the well known Hodson Bay Hotel, the farm was bought in the past by a quarry company which failed to get planning permission for the development of a quarry.

The land is described by Mr Earley as mixed, with 40-50ac near the road said to be of the best quality – decent ground with good road frontage.

The rest is high, stony ground, ideal for wintering cattle.

The farm comes with an old three-bedroom cottage and no farm buildings of note.
