Compact equestrian holding in Roscommon guided at €600,000
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.
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.
