‘Outstanding’ 88ac residential farm with 1km road frontage for sale

An “outstanding” 88ac residential holding with an “extensive range of outbuildings” has come on the market as an executor sale at Coolnahorna, Enniscorthy, Co. Wexford.

It will go for sale by public auction on Wednesday, September 2, at 3:00pm on the land, in one or more lots.

“This excellent holding is situated close to Enniscorthy and adjoins the N30. It is 3km from the centre of Enniscorthy and is located along the road leading from the Moyne towards Marshalstown,” said the agent, David Quinn.

The 88ac farm is in two blocks with 57ac, the residence and farmyard located to the western side of the N30 and the remaining 31ac located to the eastern side.

“The lands adjoin two local roads and have over 1km of road frontage,” he said.

Continuing, Quinn noted that the residence, a traditional farmhouse which has been extended and upgraded over the years, is “presented in excellent condition”.

“It is approached via a tarmacadam driveway with mature grounds, gardens and patio area,” the agent said. The property which extends to 220.25m², was built in 1950.

The approximately 88ac farm was run for many years as a dairy enterprise and has an extensive range of traditional outbuildings as well as more modern sheds. It has been leased in more recent times in a mixture of tillage and grass. However, it would be ideal to be returned to dairy production if required.

“The lands have extensive road frontage and are laid out in a number of suitable divisions with the majority currently being in tillage with a smaller amount of grassland.

“The farm has free draining soils and has been farmed to a high standard over a long number of years.

“The farm is located in one of Co. Wexford’s most productive agricultural regions and it would be ideal for any number of agricultural enterprises,” said the agent.

Close to the kitchen is a brick building that has been used as residential accommodation in the past and would make an ideal granny flat if upgraded, the agent said.

It extends to 36m and has a small kitchen, toilet, living room and bedroom with a store room to the side.

Services in the house include: a private well; a septic tank; an oil-fired central heating and an alarm. The property has a BER of C3.

The 88ac property will be offered in the following lots: lot 1 – 49.79ac; lot 2 – residence and farmyard on 7.38ac; and lot 3 – 30.76 ac.

“Enniscorthy is based in the centre of Co. Wexford along the N11 Dublin to Rosslare route, 22km north of Wexford town, 25km south of Gorey and 105km south of Dublin,” the agent said.

It is a thriving market town with a good range of shops, services, schools and amenities 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,” Quinn added.

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

“It has an excellent range of commuting options with Irish Rail Wexford Bus and Bus Eireann, along with the M11 to Dublin, N30 to New Ross and N80 linking Carlow/Laois and Offaly,” the agent concluded.
