A 29.9ac (12.14ha) farm at Baraderry West, Kiltegan, Co Wicklow has recently been listed for sale by Tullow auctioneers REA Dawson. Currently all in pasture, the land is in one block and described as excellent quality.
In the centre of the land, there is a cattle shed that has both slatted and straw-bedded accommodation for wintering cattle. Alongside this there is a silage storage area.
The southern boundary of the property, which is for sale by private treaty, forms the border between counties Carlow and Wicklow.
It is accessed via a tarred laneway which leads to the R747 road. It is
a short distance from the village of Kiltegan while Balltinglass is less than a 10-minute drive away.
Located in a busy farming area, a grassland holding such as this with slurry storage is sure to lead to strong enquiries. The chance of picking up land with a slatted tank is an option to be considered by farmers who could be under pressure with changes to the nitrates derogation.
Similar land has been selling in the region of €13,000/ac to €15,000/ac and REA Dawson expect this tidy holding to sell within that range.
Moving across the border into Co Carlow, the Tullow auctioneers have a pair of non-residential farms going for public auction this month.
First up is a circa 42.4ac farm at Currenree, Corries Cross, Bagenalstown. Laid out in five good-sized divisions, it is presently in stubble. The farm has been in tillage for a number of years and with the exception of 0.5ac of scrub land, it is excellent quality.
There is a natural water supply from a stream flowing by the boundary.
In general, similar properties in the county have been selling in the region of €14,000/ac to €15,000/ac so expect this to be within that range.
This farm will sell by public auction on Thursday 15 February at 3pm in REA Dawson’s offices at Barrack Street, Tullow, Co Carlow.
The second property, an arable farm of circa 10.65ac at Ballintrane, Fenagh will be auctioned at the same premises. Taking place later in the month, on Wednesday 28 February at 3pm, the farm has a similar guide price to the land at Bagenalstown.
It is laid out in a single division and presently in grass and is suitable for both tillage and grazing.
