On the market at €400,000, for sale through REA McCarrick & Sons, is a residential farm near Knock in County Mayo.
The property is located just off the N17 road at the Knock Village by-pass section and is 2 km from Knock village.
According to the property firm, this farm has “loads of potential” for various farming enterprises in folio number MY8684.
“The farm is all in one square block divided into nice size fields and would be easily managed after upgrading works are done.”
Approximately 15-acres at the northern end of the farm are designated SAC (Special Area of Conservation) due to the presence of a fish spawning stream.
“At present, a tenant has a lease in place to end of 2021, but the farm could be worked by a new owner once lease is complete.”
You can access the property from a side road, just 30 metres off the N17, while a 200m gravel laneway leads to the old residence and farmyard on farm’s southern end.
Residence and outbuildings
The residence is a “basic” 3-bedroom bungalow, built in the 1950s and “is in poor condition”.
The farmyard and sheds are also old fashioned, with no modern farm buildings. Besides, there is a large selection of mature deciduous trees around residence, and farmyard.
“The land quality is mixed but has huge potential for upgrading. Some of the poorer land has potential for sheep grazing or afforestation, while the better land would be ideally suitable for intensive grazing and silage/meadow ground, once limed and upgraded.”
“The convenient location of this farm is a big plus with Claremorris town within 10-minute drive and Galway City and Sligo City within 1-hour drives.”
“The size, shape and convenience of the farm makes this a blank canvas to develop it into whatever a new owner would require.”
According to the property firm, a mixture of afforestation and pastureland with a new modern residence could easily be visualised for a new owner.
The agents highly recommends this farm for those seeking a long-term investment or rural home offering a lifestyle of quality.
