Com­pact Meath farm for €200,000

Irish Independent - Farming - - PROPERTY -

WHEN it comes to farm­land sale auc­tion­eers will tell you their bread and but­ter is made up of the smaller parcels that sell con­sis­tently. Prop­er­ties of this size con­tinue to make good money be­cause they at­tract the most likely cus­tomer, the landowner out­side the ditch.

Thomas Pot­ter­ton is sell­ing a 19.5ac res­i­den­tial hold­ing at a place called Bal­ly­gortha, near Sum­mer­hill in Co Meath and guid­ing it at €300,000. The pla­ce­name means ei­ther the ‘home of the hunger’ or the ‘hurted place.’ Mr Pot­ter­ton as­sures me that nei­ther name is ap­pro­pri­ate as the land and the peo­ple of that beknighted place are nei­ther hun­gry nor ‘hurted.’

Lo­cated 4km from Sum­mer­hill and 10km from Trim the land is lo­cated around an old bun­ga­low farm­house with ac­com­mo­da­tion that in­cludes two be­d­rooms, bath­room, a kitchen and a par­lour.

Out­side is a nice gar­den while the 19.5ac of land is laid out in small fields in­ter­sected with hedgerow. There are some dated out of­fices with the prop­erty and it has lim­ited road frontage.

The place would be ideally suited to the hobby farmer and it comes for auc­tion at the Prop­erty Ex­change, Trim at 3pm on Wed­nes­day, Novem­ber 15.
