Dual pur­pose Rossie farm guided at €7,000 per acre

Irish Independent - Farming - - PROPERTY FARMING -

A SUB­STAN­TIAL farm has come on the pri­vate treaty mar­ket on the Roscom­mon side of Knock­crogh­ery. Ex­tend­ing to 65ac in­clud­ing 1ac of bog land at Car­row­more, the farm at Lis­dalaun, Ra­hara is for sale by pri­vate treaty with a guide price of €7,000 to €8,000/ac.

The farm is not far from Knock­crogh­ery off the N61 Athlone to Roscom­mon road which is about 10km from Roscom­mon town and 10km from Athlone.

“It was let for a num­ber of years and was in­her­ited by two sis­ters who have de­cided to sell it,” auc­tion­eer John Ear­ley ex­plained.

The ma­jor­ity of the ground is dual-pur­pose up­lands and it comes with a sin­gle storey, for­mer farm­house with a cor­ru­gated iron shed and a range of old farm build­ings in need of to­tal re­fur­bish­ment.

The farm is laid out in a long rec­tan­gu­lar shape and di­vided into 10 fields with the farm­house and yard at the cen­tre of the prop­erty.

The fields are di­vided by a mix of tra­di­tional hedgerow and stone walls. A pub­lic road di­vides one field from the rest pro­vid­ing road frontage to the road field on the main block of the farm. There is frontage on two sides to the field sep­a­rated from the rest.

Auc­tion­eer John Ear­ley de­scribes this as a fine solid farm with some of the best land you will get in Co Roscom­mon.

“It is in a good pro­duc­tive farm­ing area and we are ex­pect­ing lots of in­ter­est in it,” he said.

The prop­erty can be sold in one or more lots depend­ing on what level of in­ter­est there is among lo­cals and among those from far­ther afield. The field with dual road frontage may be sold sep­a­rately and it may be pos­si­ble to buy the house and yard with a few acres.
