Two-storey farmhouse with 'old-world' feel awaits return to glory
Rural isolation and access to facilities will not bother the buyer of a 90ac residential farm located at Main St, Ballynacargy, Co Westmeath.
The farmhouse is on the main street and the land stretches along the back of the village.
A local commentator observed that no matter where you find yourself on this farm you are never more than a short trot from a good pint.
Murtagh Brothers Auctioneers of Mullingar bring the holding to the market with a guide price of €8,000/ac for the land, or €700,000 in total and €100,000 for the house on 1.34ac.
The farm, along with its yard and house, are described by Paul Murtagh as having tremendous potential but in need of attention throughout.
The lands, extending to 90ac, are the best of fattening ground, but need to be tidied and fertilised.
The farm enjoys extensive frontage on to two roads and while the external boundaries are good, the internal fencing is not in the best of shape.
The house, although in need of redecoration and modernisation, is a fine two storey, four-bedroom farmhouse over a basement. It comes with a fan light doorway and many other original features.
