A LOVELY 83.5ac res­i­den­tial farm at Shean, Myshall, Co Car­low in the foothills of Mount Le­in­ster is com­ing to auc­tion this Fri­day with a guide price of €900,000.

Lo­cated off the Gar­ry­hill Road, the hold­ing is 2km from Myshall and 10km from Ba­ge­nal­stown, with the town of Car­low and Kilkenny City not far away.

The farm is the sub­ject of an ex­ecu­tor sale and de­scribed by Kilkenny auc­tion­eer Ed Dono­hoe as a good grass­land farm that could do with some at­ten­tion. The lands ex­tend­ing to 83.5ac are in graz­ing and come with ex­ten­sive road frontage.

The yard is dated and lies in tra­di­tional court­yard style around the house. It in­cludes an old slaugh­ter­house, a two-col­umn barn with a two col­umn lean-to and a three col­umn lean-to.

The house, fronting to the road, is struc­turally sound while need­ing mod­erni­sa­tion and re­fur­bish­ment. Ac­cord­ing to Mr Dono­hoe, it has great po­ten­tial. The ac­com­mo­da­tion in­cludes a front porch and hall­way, a din­ing area, a kitchen, a back hall­way, bath­room, sitting room and four bed­rooms.

At auc­tion, the farm will be of­fered as an en­tire or in a num­ber of lots with the house and out­build­ings on 1.5ac avail­able as one lot and guided be­tween €80,000 and €100,000. The sec­ond and third are made up of 42.7ac and 39ac re­spec­tively, guided at €10,000/ac. The fi­nal lot is the en­tire. The prop­erty will be sold at auc­tion at the Lord Ba­ge­nal Ho­tel, Leigh­lin­bridge, Co Car­low, at 3pm this Fri­day.
