Murtagh Bros Auctioneers has a tidy circa 21ac parcel of agricultural land going for online auction in March.

Laid out in neat, tidy divisions of various sizes, the lands at Cartroncroy, The Pigeons, Co Westmeath are divided by mature hedgerows. This holding is largely in grass and most of the land is excellent quality. However, some could benefit from some reclamation work. Alternatively in this time of increased environmental awareness, the rougher ground could be of benefit in future environmental schemes.

Cottage and road frontage

There is a derelict cottage located centrally at the front of the property and there is approximately 250m of road frontage. The front of the cottage is currently used as a cattle handling facility but the site could prove useful in securing future planning permission if so desired by the purchaser.

Located on the L5468 road it is just over 1km off the N55 Athlone to Ballymahon road. The centre of Athlone is about a 20-minute drive away.

There is an old derelict cottage on site that could lend itself to renovation or be useful in securing planning permission.

The online auction takes place on Thursday 10 March 2022 at 3pm on the LSL online auction platform. This is an executor sale.

In order to bid at the auction, interested parties are asked to register with Murtagh Bros on or before Friday 4 March. The advised minimum value on this property is €150,000, or €7,000/ac.
