Value in Tipp and romantic Kildare
THERE are some lovely smaller rural residential properties on the market at the moment that represent real value in comparison to their urban counterparts.
Nenagh auctioneer Eoin Dillon is handling the sale of a fine five-bedroom dormer house on 15.3ac with a farmyard and a derelict cottage at Derry, Rathcabbin in north Tipperary. The private treaty sale is guided at €475,000.
Located 10km west of Birr and 15km east of Portumna, the holding is centred around a contemporary, five-bedroom dormer house built in 2006. The dwelling has some lovely design features including a large double-height hallway and a sweeping staircase.
The kitchen/dining room is to the right of the hall and features fully-fitted oak units, granite countertops and an island.
Off the kitchen is a sunroom while to the left of the hallway is an office, a sitting room and a living room with a solid fuel stove and laminate floor.
There is a bathroom on the ground floor along with a separate WC and a utility room.
Upstairs are five bedrooms of which one is ensuite and there is also the family bathroom. A folding stairs leads to the attic.
The house is set on landscaped gardens to the front with a large garage to the rear. The farmyard includes four stables and a three-column haybarn with a lean-to and a derelict cottage that would have possibilities.
The 15ac of land is all in grass and laid out in nice paddocks.
Meanwhile, further north in Co Kildare in a place that rejoices in the romantic name of Cupidstown, Sherry FitzGerald O’Reilly auctioneers are handling the executor sale of 21ac of ground that comes to auction with a guide price of €175,000.
Located close to Kilteel, the land is laid out in a number of paddocks divided by post and rail fencing and all are in good heart with easy access to Kilteel, Kill and Naas.
Auctioneer Joe O’Reilly says the land has a slightly elevated profile but is conveniently located being only 12 minutes from Naas and the motorway system. It is grazed by sheep at the moment and has plenty of road frontage to all sections.
“The property will be sold on the day, it is an executor sale and I’m instructed to sell, so when we hit the guide price of €175,000, it is on the market,” he said.
The auction takes place at Lawlor’s Hotel, Naas at 3pm on Wednesday, May 23.
