A compact Wicklow residential farm extending to 42ac located between Tinahely and Aughrim has come on the market with annual SFP entitlements of €3,211 and lots of potential. The property is being guided at €300,000 or a little more than €7,000/ac in advance of the auction.

Located 2.8km from Ballymanus GAA grounds and 9.5km from both Tinahely and Aughrim, the farm has 700m of road frontage, giving it plenty of access points.

The holding is set in an attractive rural setting with great views of the scenic surrounding countryside.

The land, extending to 42ac, is described as good grazing ground, all south-facing and well-sheltered with a fresh water supply from a nearby stream.

VARIETY

According to selling agent Alan Kinsella of Kinsella Estates, the land, which is currently in permanent pasture, could accommodate a variety of agricultural uses.

"Every field on the farm has road frontage so it will be of interest to a lot of farmers in this strong farming area," he said.

The property is accessed by a driveway lined with mature trees, leading to an attractive traditional farmhouse that was modernised about five years ago.
