A circa 37-acre roadside farm in Co Wicklow from Quinn Property goes for sale by online auction on Tuesday 28 February at 3pm. The land at Knockanree Upper, Avoca, has extensive road frontage and contains a derelict cottage.
Described as excellent quality lands, they are currently in grass and suitable for a range of farming activities. The farm is within 2km of the picturesque village of Avoca and will be offered in its entirety or in lots.
Lying to the eastern side of the R754 road, Lot 1 includes circa 11.5 acres divided into two similar-sized fields. Also within this lot is a derelict cottage and the basic outline of an old farmyard. Access is via a laneway just off the public road and the remains of the farm residence lie within 100 metres of the road. They are adjacent to some other old farm structures including a round-roofed hayshed with a lean-to. Part of the cottage remains roofed and it needs considerable work but could form part of a future planning application.
Lot 2, circa 6.7 acres, is a short distance away on the same side of the main road and consists of one large field that has a gentle slope away from the road. The balance of the land, circa 18.9 acres, is in Lot 3 and is across the road from the rest of the farm. It is laid out in three large fields.
Located in a busy farming area and served by a good road network, this property could achieve its guide of €10,000 to €12,000 per acre.
