A substantial 109ac non-residential farm near Edenderry, Co Offaly has come on the market by private treaty with a guide price just above the €1m mark or €9,250/ac.

Rooske Farm is located on the Rhode road, 4km from Edenderry, 11km from Kinnegad and 60km from Dublin.

The property is described by Celia Lamb of selling agents Ganly Walters as a fine beef farm made up of good grazing ground. Laid out in one block and in large manageable divisions, the farm is in permanent pasture and regarded as quality grassland suitable for all agricultural uses.

The entire holding is well sheltered with mature trees and hedges and bound on one side by the River Boyne, where it enjoys substantial frontage, with extensive road frontage on the other.

"Rooske Farm has been rented for some time and could do with a bit of husbandry but a decent crop of silage has just been taken off it," Ms Lamb said.

The property, which includes a derelict cottage close to the entrance, can be bought as a unit or in two lots. The smaller of the two sections comprises 23.62ac, with the larger extending to 85.43ac.

Wide interest is expected in the executor sale and given that the holding is being offered in lots or the entire, it should suit the needs of a range of customers, especially local farmers.
