Coastal ‘rarity’ for €635,000 in Meath
COASTAL land between Dublin and Dundalk is among the best in the country. It is genuinely fit for any purpose and can grow everything from grass to gherkins, writes Jim O’ Brien.
A powerful piece of ground extending to 47ac in two fields at Lisdornan, Julianstown, Co Meath is coming to market with a guide of €13,500/ac.
Located just off the old N1 and 4km from the City North Hotel the farm is set on the eastern slopes of Bellewstown Hill, not far from the site of the recent Bellewstown races.
It is described by Frank Flynn of selling agents Robert B Daly as made up of powerful, self-draining, dry land laid out in two fields of tillage.
“The farm has 760m of road frontage and the footprint of an old farmhouse and yard demolished about 30 years ago,” he said. With the requisite planning permission the latter might give some grounds for turning the place into a residential farm at some future date.
“This farm is in a great location. Very little land comes up for sale between Dublin and Drogheda and so it is a rarity,” said Mr Flynn
Mr Flynn will be hoping the old saying, “something rare is wonderful” will apply when the farm comes to auction at the Drogheda salesrooms of Robert B Daly at 3pm on Friday, September 22.
KILDARE PARCEL AT €14,000/AC
Coonans of Maynooth are handling the sale of a 22ac parcel of ground at Whitechurch near Straffan in Co Kildare. The holding will be brought to auction in lots with a guide price of €14,000/ac.
Located 4km from Straffan, 7km from Kill and 25km from Dublin the holding is described by Phillip Byrne of Coonans as a superb piece of ground that is free draining and under pasture but suited to any kind of agricultural or equestrian use.
Given the proper planning Mr Byrne believes it may have residential potential. Perhaps with that in mind the land will be offered for sale in lots with the first lot comprised of a 3ac piece while the second lot is made up by the remaining 19ac. The entire will also be offered at auction at Glenroyal Hotel, Maynooth at 3pm on Thursday, September 21.
Meanwhile, on the private treaty side Coonans are handling the sale of a 39ac parcel of ground at Bryanstown, Co Kildare. Located 4km from Maynooth, the place is adjacent to Moyglare Stud.
It is described by Philip Byrne as a gorgeous piece of ground with fine stands of trees and lovely boundary hedges. He added that with the requisite planning permission the place would make ideal place for a hobby farm. The property is guided at €13,000/ac.
