Top-quality farm will be good test of the market
A sizeable farm of good quality land in a much sought after location will be a good test of the market. WFC Properties Ltd in Wexford anxiously anticipate the outcome of an executor's sale by public auction of such a property on March 12.
Competitively guided at €7,500/ac, the farm at Mullinagower, Castlebridge, Co Wexford, extends to 72.5ac, comes with a comfortable, four-bedroom residence and a range of farm buildings.
It is located within 10 minutes of Wexford town and about the same distance from the nearest beach.
Currently in tillage, the land is also suitable for grazing. Another enterprise option is vegetable growing, given its south-east location in the county's horticultural heartland.
Its secluded location, well off the main road, combined with its size and the range of farm buildings included, would also make it an attractive holding for someone with equine interests.
Already, interest has been expressed in the sale from as far away as Cork and Meath. The property will be offered in lots, but the agents predict it will go in one lot.
"This property has a good location, being quiet and secluded, and yet only two miles from Castlebridge and four miles from Wexford town," said auctioneer Michael Kehoe.
