78ac residential farm well-located on the fringe of Summerhill on the market

New to the market is a residential farm on 78ac, namely Clondoogan House, Summerhill, Co. Meath. It is for sale in five lots by public auction, which will be facilitated by REA TE Potterton.

Clondoogan House is particularly well-located on the fringe of the village of Summerhill fronting the R156 Rathmolyon road; while lying about 10km from Trim; just 12km from Kilcock / the M4 motorway; and about 50km to Dublin.

Summerhill is well supported by an established farming infrastructure with abattoirs, contractors, merchants and Delvin Livestock Market, as well as other service industries all close at hand.

Lot 1

First up is Lot 1 which is comprised of 13.58ac (5.49ha) and includes Clondoogan House. The residence is a fine two-storey period house built in the late 19th century.

According to the auctioneers, the house will require “considerable refurbishment, and the placing of it on the market affords a unique opportunity for a discerning purchaser to acquire a lovely old house in a secluded setting”.

A row of fine old beech trees ensure shade and privacy to the house and grounds which comprise lawned areas interspersed with mature shrubs.

Also incorporated in the sale are the valuable rich farmlands and a four-bay haybarn with a lean-to.

Lot 1A

Lot 1 comprises the Coachman’s house with enclosed rear yard incorporating an attractive range of out offices and extending to 1.27ac (0.51ha).

There is a rare development opportunity to restore/extend the Coachman’s house and other stone out offices with a small paddock to the rear. This development would be subject to obtaining planning permission from Meath County Council.

Lot 2

On Lot 2, the lands extend to 2.67ac (1.08ha). There is a lovely field fronting the R156, less than 2km from the village.

This parcel of land would lend itself to the erection of a residence subject to obtaining planning permission from Meath County Council.

Lot 3

With Lot 3, the lands extend to 22.52ac (9.11ha). This is a highly desirable block of pasture adjacent to Lot 2, enjoying dual road frontage and is laid out in one convenient division.

Again, this lends itself to the erection of a residence subject to obtaining planning permission from Meath County Council.

Lot 4

Lot 4 comprises lands extending to 10.09ac (4.08ha). There is a useful paddock lying just off the main Summerhill/Rathmolyon road, approached over a right of way.

Lot 5

And, finally, is Lot 5. Here, the lands extend to 27.78ac (11.24ha). This is an attractive, easily managed block of land principally laid out in two divisions. These lands are approached over a short lane off the main Summerhill/Rathmolyon road.
