Westport-based Sherry Fitzgerald Crowley has an interesting property on the market in south Mayo.
A unique feature of this sale is that this is a limited company that is for sale and the land is the only asset of the company. The property is situated at Lecanvey, a coastal village located approximately 12km from Westport town and 8km from Louisburgh.
This combination of agricultural land and commonage is neatly sandwiched between two iconic Mayo landmarks – Croagh Patrick and Clew Bay.
The land runs along the shore line of Clew Bay while the commonage rights are for land that is on the northern slopes of Croagh Patrick.
By the sea
The farmland comprises of 32ac (12.8ha) and is either side of the road that leads to Lecanvey pier, with the largest proportion on the western side of the road.
This portion is the best of the grazing ground and is divided into six fields of various sizes and a small stream traverses the property close to the main road.
The balance of the land, some of it more marginal, is across a local road and next to Lecanvey national school. A stream forms the eastern boundary of the property. The land itself is described as typical of the area, mixed quality and suitable mainly for grazing.
These fields have some road frontage on the R335 which is the main road between Westport and Louisburgh.
Up the mountains
Moving to higher – and perhaps, holier ground – the commonage rights element of this holding comprises of an undivided one-22nd part of approximately 433ac (175ha) of hilly land that runs along the northern slopes of Croagh Patrick.
The guide price for this entire offering is €495,000.
