Royal county holding guided at €480k
The auction rooms are busy this week with a wide range of properties for sale as the auctioneers prepare to hit the beaches and the farmers go back to the silage meadows for the second cut.
Stephen Barry and Raymond Potterton have the sun cream on and the bucket and spade at the ready, but before they jet off on holidays, there is some gavel swinging to be done.
Today will see a 25ac residential farm at Ross, near Royal Tara, come for auction with a guide price of €480,000.
Located beside the M3 motorway and 25 minutes from Dublin the farm consists of a fine redbrick, two-storey farmhouse with four bedrooms, a kitchen and two reception rooms.
The farmyard is home to an extensive range of housing including a 10-column slatted shed, dry bedded sheds, concrete yards and state of the art farming facilities. The land is all in grass and described as top quality grazing ground fenced by mature hedgerows giving excellent shelter.
The farm will be sold at auction at 3pm today, Tuesday July 5, at the Navan offices of Raymond Potterton.
Westmeath farm auction
At the same auction, Pottertons will offer a 40ac non-residential farm at Martinstown, Delvin Co Westmeath. This comes with a guide of €8,000/ac.
