57ac Enniscorthy holding with derelict bungalow for auction

A circa 57ac holding with residential zoning at Greenmount, Clonhasten, Enniscorthy, Co. Wexford, will go for auction in one or two lots on September 9 at 3:00pm in The Courtyard, Ferns. The property was bought as an investment some years ago.

Selling agent, David Quinn from Quinn Property, Gorey, Co. Wexford, said that the property would appeal to local farmers looking to expand existing holdings as well as investors and developers.

“While the majority of the land is zoned for low-density residential we do not believe it will be developed in the short term. It would have long-term potential,” he said.

In grass

“The land is in one block and is divided into a number of suitable divisions with excellent access from the public road as well as a central laneway leading to a hard core yard in the middle of the property.

The lands are generally of excellent quality and, while currently in grass, would be suitable to most agricultural enterprises. Currently, the majority of the lands are zoned for low-density residential development with a smaller amount zoned for community education and agricultural.

“The 57ac property has the benefit of a three-bedroom bungalow which has been unoccupied for some time and is in need of complete renovation. There is a two-span shed to the rear of the residence and the property has services to include: mains water; a septic tank; and electricity on the land,” said the selling agent.

“This 57ac holding enjoys an excellent location along the Clonhasten road, 2km from the centre of Enniscorthy with extensive road frontage and frontage onto the River Slaney. It is 3km off the N11 at Scarawalsh, within easy access of an extensive road network,” he said.

Thriving market town

“Enniscorthy is a thriving market town situated along the N11 and the River Slaney, with a large range of shops, services, amenities, primary and secondary schools servicing both a large urban and rural population.

“There is a swimming pool / recreation centre, several sports grounds including a rugby club and GAA club and several hotels including the four-star Riverside Park Hotel,” said David.

“Surrounding the town, there is an 18-hole golf course, several pitch and putts, freshwater fishing and the renowned five-star spa Monart is just beside ‘The Still Pond’.

“Enniscorthy has an excellent range of commuting options with Irish Rail providing easy commuting to Dublin Connolly / Rosslare Harbour, Wexford Bus and Bus Eireann, the M11 to Dublin/N30 to New Ross/N80 linking to Carlow/Laois and Offaly,” he said.

The property will be offered in the following lots:

  • Lot 1: Circa 17.7ac with derelict residence;
  • Lot 2: Circa 39.2ac; and
  • Lot 3: The entire.

The price guide is €10,000-12,000/ac. In general, land sales in the Enniscorthy area have been strong, the agent said.
