Com­pact eques­trian hold­ing in Roscom­mon guided at €600,000

Irish Independent - Farming - - PROPERTY - Jim O’Brien

SMALLER stud farms have a mar­ket seg­ment all of their own. Cus­tomers in­clude fam­i­lies with eques­trian in­ter­ests, peo­ple in­ter­ested in smaller train­ing op­er­a­tions and those start­ing out with a view to es­tab­lish­ing a more sub­stan­tial blood­stock en­ter­prise.

A com­pact 36ac stud farm (be­low) with a good house and a com­pre­hen­sive range of eques­trian fa­cil­i­ties on the mar­ket at Du­na­mon, Co Roscom­mon would fit the bill for a range of these cus­tomers. The pri­vate treaty sale is guided at €600,000.

Lo­cated north-west of Roscom­mon town just off the N60, the prop­erty is 18km from Castlerea, 9km from Bal­ly­moe and 30 minutes from Athlone.

The 1,800 sq ft res­i­dence is a two-storey struc­ture with three bed­rooms, one of which is en­suite and lo­cated on the ground floor. The re­cep­tion ac­com­mo­da­tion in­cludes a hall­way, a kitchen/din­ing area, a study and bath­room.

The eques­trian fa­cil­i­ties in­clude a six-horse walker, a lung­ing ring, eight mare and foal boxes, eight foal­ing boxes, four stables, a feed room, a tack room, an office, a stor­age shed and a four-col­umn hay­barn.

Graz­ing ground

There are also 20 loose boxes and two all-weather pad­docks all laid out in a hard­core turn­ing bay.

The land, which has plenty of road frontage, is de­scribed by auc­tion­eer Paddy Jor­dan as the best of graz­ing ground laid out in 11 well-shel­tered pad­docks in per­ma­nent pas­ture with an in­ter­nal road­way giv­ing easy ac­cess.

Cur­rently op­er­at­ing as a board­ing stud, according to Mr Jor­dan it is ideally suit­able for the pur­pose and would also be suit­able for sales prepa­ra­tion, for the sport horse en­thu­si­ast or for the hobby farmer.

The prop­erty is for sale by pri­vate treaty with joint agents Jor­dan Town and Coun­try Auc­tion­eers, New­bridge and Oates Auc­tion­eers, Roscom­mon.
