A VERY desirable rural location in the Royal County is one of the key selling points of a 26.5ac residential holding.

Located at Derrylangan, Athboy in the heart of the Co Meath Gaeltacht, the property is one of two holdings that will be offered for sale by public auction on April 13.

Auctioneer Thomas Potterton is offering the land in lots. He describes the farm as a really attractive, compact residential farm in one of the most desirable areas of the county and yet only an hour's drive from the capital.

The sale includes a three-bedroom bungalow with easily kept gardens, an enclosed yard, cattle pen chute and an adjoining block of excellent pasture land laid out in four divisions.

Lot one comprises the residence on eight acres, which is guided at €200,000-230,000. Lot two, an 18.5ac parcel, is guided at €150,000-200,000.

"This is a rare opportunity to acquire a very tidy holding in this sought after locality," Mr Potterton said.

"The property is well situated in pleasant countryside and yet close to the towns of Athboy and Trim, both of which boast excellent shopping, educational and recreational facilities.

"The locality is well supported by an established farming infrastructure, with Delvin livestock mart only a short distance from the property, and abattoirs, contractors and other service industries all close at hand."

Mr Potterton will also offer approximately 19.5ac at Ballinadrimna, Athboy on the same day, which has already attracted a lot of inquiries.

"This is a nice piece of agricultural land incorporating an old residence and comes with the benefit of restricted planning permission, which lapsed in 2008," he said.

"However, I feel a local person should have a good chance of getting planning.

"We feel it should fetch somewhere in the region of €100,000, given its location, the quality of the land and the fact that there is an old house on it."
