The Vee is one of the finest beauty spots in the country. It is in the foothills of the Knockmealdown Mountains about 10km north of Lismore on the Waterford-Tipperary border.
28.6ac gated community in Glenaknockaun 2 miles from The Vee has lots of potential as a hobby farm and could be the ideal place to settle down and start the great Irish novel.
the Land is of mixed quality with 12.9 Ac planted in forestry with the remainder comprising the cottage, surrounding garden and four adjoining patches of grass. The property is to be sold in an online auction by Eamonn Spratt of REA Spratt, Dungarvan, who is leading the sale for €225,000.
The forestry planted in 2015 is Sitka spruce with an outer belt of deciduous trees demanding premiums of €2,500 per annum, payable through 2030. The remaining land is upland pasture suitable for sheep or horses.
The structurally sound two bedroom cottage needs attention but its presence in this picturesque area where building permits for new build are difficult to obtain gives it great value even as it stands.
There are two bedrooms, a bathroom, a shower room, a conservatory, a kitchen and a living area. The kitchen has a wooden floor and a traditional open fireplace with a Belfast sink.
The living area also has a wooden floor, an open fireplace and a wooden vaulted ceiling. The dining area is directly adjacent to the living area.
The cottage is set in a large garden with an ornate pond. Services include its own well, septic tank and oil central heating. According to Mr. Spratt, in his 30 years of practice he has rarely listed a property in such a picturesque and peaceful setting.
“It takes some work, but what a place!” he said.
The holdings will be auctioned off on Friday, April 22nd at 11am via online auction on the BidNow platform.
‘Perfect’ 26ac Westmeath package
In Glenidan, Collinstown in Co Westmeath, Pottertons of Navan are looking after the sale of a 26ac property. Auctioneer Stephen Barry describes this in his usual reserved way as “the perfect farm”.
With a 300m frontage, the farm has been professionally fenced both along the perimeter and internally where it is divided into a series of manicured paddocks.
The site, which was reseeded in the not too distant past, was used for cattle and sheep and has natural and public water supplies and good livestock facilities.
The auctioneer describes it as a ready-to-move-in model farm.
“All you have to do is drop the tailgate and let go of it,” he said.
With an indicative value of €250,000, the place will be auctioned on Wednesday 30th March at 3pm in the Potterton Navan auction rooms and on the LSL online platform.
