Two farm holdings are on the market in Co Cavan – each quite different and each of which will attract its own bidders. The larger holding has a traditional two-story farmhouse in need of modernising. The other holding is smaller, but has a modern bungalow which is ready for moving into.

Both of these properties are on sale with Martin Shortt Auctioneers and Martin is bringing them to for auction on the same day.

Larger farm

The larger farm is 47.5ac at Tullyagan, Mountnugent. The location is 13km from Virginia and 24km from Cavan town.

This land is in one level division and in permanent pasture. It has a river boundary at the rear. The farm has been rented out for some years and is being mainly used for cutting silage and hay.

The four-bed traditional farmhouse has been vacant for some years and requires modernising, but it has great potential.

Outside there is a basic farmyard that’s also in need of tidying up. This is a sizeable block of nice land so it will be of interest to active farmers interested in expanding.

The house is close to the road, so could be sold off on its own in future if the buyer isn’t interested in undertaking renovation works. The guide price for the entire farm is €650,000, but the farm can also be bought in lots if desired.

Suggested lots are the house on c1ac and then the balance of the land which is c46.5ac.

Smaller holding

The smaller holding is 22.75ac on the other side of Virginia at Annagharnet. It’s a handy location as Virginia is 6km away, Cavan town 30km and Navan 40km.

The 22.75ac is nice ground.

The land here is nice quality and the three-bed house is set back from the public road. It has a combined kitchen and dining area plus lounge area.

The kitchen has modern units, a red brick fireplace with stove and back boiler and double French doors to the yard outside. The main bedroom is en-suite.

There is a walk-in hot press and wooden shutters on all windows. The house has dual heating by oil and solid fuel. Outside there is a farmyard with a round-roofed hayshed and a number of smaller outbuildings. There is also planning permission for a four-bay slatted shed.

This house is ready-to-move-in.

The guide price for this property is €450,000. This farm is likely to catch the interest of buyers looking for a house first and land second.

The auction for both properties takes place in the Lakeside Manor in Virginia on Friday 20 October at 3pm.
