Given the peak prices paid for Leinster plots of late, a number of plots across the province will be auctioned over the next few weeks with conservative price estimates ranging from €8,000/ac to €12,000/ac.
This Thursday 2nd June Murtagh Bros are selling an 84ac non-residential farm in Corry, Rathowen, Co Westmeath in an online auction.
The property includes 58.5 acres of pasture land with a number of farm buildings and 25.5 acres of woodland.
The whole thing is estimated at €600,000.
The property is 10 miles west of Mullingar and 1 mile from the N4 Sligo road and is being sold in two lots or as a whole.
The 58.5ac is laid out in eight fields of good grazing land, fenced in by traditional hedges. It has limited street frontage but enough for one or two locations.
The yard consists of a four-post barn with a two-row slatted frame with feeding alley.
There is also a detached four-post drying shed, a number of other storage buildings, cattle transport facilities and a derelict house.
This part is estimated at €500,000.
The 25.5 ac Sitka spruce forestry was planted 22 years ago and the mature wood will be valuable although not premium.
The property, valued at €100,000, is accessed via the 58.5ac section and backs onto the River Inny.
The stock will be sold this Thursday, May 2nd at 3:00 p.m. in an online auction on the LSL platform.
