Irish Independent - Farming - - PROPERTY FARMING -

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.
