In the recent past, a piece of land adjacent to a village or town was a much sought after commodity thanks to its development potential. Nowadays, such properties command a more modest premium for their location and convenience.
A 17.5ac non-residential farm in the Co Mayo village of Bonniconlon, about five miles from Ballina, is an attractive property from a number of perspectives. The land is of great quality, in permanent pasture, well fenced, well looked after with a water supply, and there is excellent road frontage. The farmyard has a range of modern sheds, concrete yards and cattle-handling facilities.
With the relevant planning permission, the property would be ideal as a residential holding for a part-time farmer. It is also a great piece of ground for farmers who wants to expand.
According to selling agents, Garret Loftus and Associates, Ballina, the holding may have development potential in the future. The farm is being sold by private treaty with a guide price of €220,000.
