A unique property on the south coast of Co Wexford has recently come on the market with Sherry Fitzgerald Radford. Located in the townlands of Ringbawn and Ballagh, the 132.5ac at Tacumshin is for sale by private treaty.
This is a non-residential holding and with the exception of 11ac, it is all in one block. Primarily in grass, there is a lot of tillage activity in the locality and the sandy loam type of soil would also suit vegetable or potato growing.
Due to the farm’s proximity to the coast, some of the land runs into the sand dunes behind the beach, meaning that chances of frost impacting on crops would be minimal.
A substantial holding, it is presented for sale in two lots. Lot 1 comprises of 96.72/ac and is guided at €1.1m. Lot 2 consists of an additional 35.78ac with an array of interesting buildings that appear to be the remains of an old farmhouse and yard.
Regarding the buildings, auctioneer, John Radford says, “There’s probably between 4,000 and 5,000sq ft when you combine the floor space of all the buildings. Judging by the stonework, these buildings were built in the 1700s or 1800s.
“They’re solidly built structures and the stone is well pointed. They will outlast all of us, they’re so well constructed.”
The buildings could be a help in trying to get planning permission, alternatively they could become a major renovation project.
It’s worth noting on this sale that Lot 2 will only be sold with Lot 1 and not on its own. It is guided at €400,000.
For Lot 1 and Lot 2 combined, there is a guide price of €1.5m on the
farm, which equates to a little over €11,000/ac.
It is approximately 10km from Kilmore Quay, 16km from Rosslare and within a half hour drive of Wexford town. Although situated at the lower end of the county, this farm is nonetheless in an area with a wide range of agricultural and equine interests.
Indeed, the land’s future could very well be in equine as the area nearby is known in horse training circles.
