James O’Meara of O’Meara Auctioneering, Ballymahon, has a circa 85ac non-residential farm near Kilashee, Co Longford for sale by private treaty. Located at Templeton – Glebe, Killashee, this superb non-residential farm is well located within the county.
The lands would be well known as excellent grazing or fattening lands and they come with a private water and electricity supply.
Currently all under the grass the fields are laid out in convenient large divisions which would lend themselves to being further subdivided into smaller paddocks again.
The internal divisions have a healthy sprinkling of mature trees among the hedgerows and stone wall field boundaries. The property is well fenced with drinking troughs in each field and is suitable for any farming enterprise.
One field contains a small bit of rough grazing and this is located slightly away from the main body of the farm and can be easily accessed by a small laneway which is included in the property folio. Despite the outer boundary of the holding being in close proximity to a residential area, the farm yard is situated away from the village. As the crow flies, the yard is over 500m away from Kilashee itself.
It is also well set back from the road giving privacy and can be accessed via a private avenue off the local road. As farm yard locations go, this one is as central as you can get with all points of the farm easily accessible.
A modern yard, it consists of a slatted shed, dry bedded shed, storage shed, cubicles and a 100ft × 40ft silage slab among other facilities. All the buildings are conveniently located next to each other and just across from the silage slab.
The slatted shed is an eight-bay structure with creep area and there is a dry bedded shed approximately 40ft × 65ft alongside it. Cubicle accommodation consists of 26 individual cubicles with scraper system installed. It’s a farm well set up for cattle with plenty accommodation and indoor cattle crush and handling facilities.
If the purchaser wished to enter dairy and get a standalone unit going, there’s scope to install a milking parlour with the rest of the required infrastructure in place. Alternatively it has super accommodation for a beef enterprise with the presence of cubicles making contract rearing of dairy stock a straightforward add-on if desired.
The southern boundary of the farm backs onto the village of Kilashee and from a non-farming perspective there is site potential on this property.
It benefits from road frontage onto both the N63 and L1162 roads with an impressive stone wall running along where the farm meets the road. Approximately 14ac of this farm are zoned residential on the Longford county development plan 2015-2021.
The farm is well placed in west Longford and is almost equidistant between the towns of Longford and Lanesboro. Both are less than 10 minutes’ drive away.
This fine west Longford holding is guided at €900,000 which puts it at just over €10,500/ac.
