The house and yard are being offered on c8.9ac – or with an additional c20ac of grassland. This c20ac includes c1ac of mature woodland.

The balance of the farm is c4.5ac of Shannon Callows and this is available to purchase separately.

Original features

The house has many original features and is in good condition.

On the ground floor it has sitting room with a fireplace, kitchen with stove and a utility room.

There are two bedrooms – one ensuite – on the first floor. The stove in the kitchen heats radiators and the hot water tank.

A new owner could revamp and modernise this house, or alternatively emphasise and major on its traditional Irish design.

Holiday home

Auctioneer Francis Kearney says the house could be turned into a holiday home and produce an income stream.

The yard is alongside the house. It has large, open concrete areas, including a silage pit.

The main shed is a three-bay with a round roof, and has a lean-to on each side. There are also a number of stables in the yard.
