40ac Monaghan farm for €495k is ‘slice of rural heaven’

Monaghan farm for sale

Rossarrell Farm, a 40-acre holding in the heart of Glaslough, Co. Monaghan, has hit the market with an asking price of €495,000.

Town & Country Property Ireland is handling the sale of the property, which consists of “good” pasture and mixed native forestry on the outskirts of Glaslough, home to Castle Leslie.

Also contained in the portfolio are two residences needing full refurbishment: an old 171m2 2-storey farmhouse with an old milking parlour and a garage and a 64m2 1970s-built two-bedroom bungalow.

The total holdings consist of c.24-acres of pastural fields with an additional native copse at the top of the farm.

The native forestry of c.16-acres is across the lane and, according to the firm, would be suitable for clear-felling, commercial growth development or as a “charming” private wild landscape. Also, the land contains a large steel-built farm shed.
