A 33.6ac residential farm is on the market near Enniscorthy,
Co Wexford. The holding is Craheen House, at Clonhaston.
It’s being sold by DNG O’Connor and O’Connor and is going for auction. The guide price is in the region of €18,000 to €20,000/ac.
This is a well-located farm. Sitting on the R744, it is 2.8km from the centre of Enniscorthy. It’s just 4km to junction 25 on the M11 motorway. There are sand and gravel quarries in the area, usually an indicator of well drained land.
The farm has a lot of road frontage. The land is divided by the main road. The house and farmyard sit on one side of the road, on approximately 20ac.
This land is divided into five main fields, plus a paddock around the yard.
The remaining c13.59ac sits on the other side of the road, in three main fields. At the rear, it fronts on to another local road, the L6057.
The land is good quality. It’s all in permanent pasture and has mature hedges at the boundaries.
According to the auctioneers, the property borders Zone 1 and Zone 2 of the zoning plans for residential use in the current Enniscorthy Towns and Environs Development Master Plan 2008-2014 (as extended). This will increase interest in the property.
The two-storey farmhouse sits near the main road, with the farmyard alongside. The house has been vacant for over 20 years and requires extensive renovations.
The farm will be offered for sale in four lots. Lot 1 (A) is the house, yard and sheds on c2.389ac. Lot 2 (B) is 17.62ac beside the house, on the same side of the main road.
Lot 3 (C) is c13.59ac across the road with added frontage at the back on a local road. Lot 4 is the entire.
The auction takes place in the Riverside Park Hotel, Enniscorthy on Tuesday 19 December at 3pm.
