A 51ac residential farm with farmyard is on the market in Co Meath. The farm is at Fordstown, outside Kells and is being sold by Rogers Tevlin Auctioneers by private treaty. The asking price is in excess of €1m.

The farm is located about 5km from Kells on the Kells to Athboy road (R164). This means it’s a short distance from the M3 motorway and a 40-minute drive to Dublin. Fordstown is close by with a Post Office, church, convenience shop, pub and community centre.

This is an area of good farmland. The holding for sale is in grassland and run as an organic beef and sheep farm. Auctioneer John Tevlin said that this is highly productive land suitable for any agricultural use including tillage.

The farmhouse and yard are close together and set back just a short distance from the road. The house is two-storey and five bedroomed. It has been modernised in recent years and is in ready to move in condition.

The ground floor consists of two reception rooms, kitchen, dining room, front and rear halls and bedroom and bathroom. There are four bedrooms upstairs, one ensuite, and the main bathroom. The house is surrounded by mature trees providing plenty of privacy.

The farmyard has slatted, cubicle and bedded sheds and a range of traditional outbuildings. There is a cattle crush with catwalk.
