A 30ac farm with a farmyard and an exceptional farmhouse is on the market in east Galway. The property is in the townland of Ussey, near Glinsk and is being sold by Remax Team Earley.

It consists of 24.25ac of good grassland, with the house and farmyard, plus 6.75ac of bogland a few kilometres away. The property is on offer by private treaty with a guide price of €550,000. This is a lot of property for the price.

The farm sits in a pleasant location on the Glinsk to Ballynoe road, in a quiet part of the county. For day to day needs, Glinsk village is 1km away, Castlerea is 14km away while Roscommon town is within 20km.

This is an area of quality land and good farming. Local farms are in sucklers, dairy, drystock and sheep.

The 24.25ac is in one block with frontage on the public road. The house and farmyard sit together, at the edge of the road.

The land runs behind the house and yard and bounds a road at the rear.

The land lies in two main fields, running back from the house and yard. It bounds on to another local road at the rear. The fields are in permanent pasture and have good hedge boundaries. The land was let out for the past few years but was well maintained and remains in good condition.

The house was built in the mid-1900s. It was subsequently extended and modernised and is now a spacious, two-story residence of 1,875 sq ft with five bedrooms and two bathrooms.

It was renovated recently – and is now ready for a new owner. It has a solid fuel stove, oil-fired central heating and good insulation.

There are lawn areas to the front, a garden area to the side and boundary walls. The house has nice views over the Galway countryside.

The farmyard has a three-bay hay barn with a two-bay lean-to. It is suited for storage or wintering livestock. The shed has been well maintained and is in good working condition. There is an open concrete yard area at the front and side of the shed.
