For Auction



James L. Murtagh Auctioneers are delighted to offer for sale by Public Auction this c. 38.5 Acre Roadside Farm at Cloneyheigue, Ballinagore, Co. Westmeath (in one or more lots). The property benefits from a two storey derelict farmhouse thereon and is set in the most picturesque area benefiting from expansive views of the surrounding countryside and natural water supply.

The derelict farmhouse is nestled amongst a backdrop of mature beech trees and set in a sheltered position, offering the new purchasers endless potential to restore to its former glory. As the residence has been vacant for a number of years, the new owners may avail of the Vacant Property Refurbishment Grant. This grant is funded by the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage through the Croi Conaithe (Towns) Fund and you apply through your local authority. The grant provides funding for the refurbishment of vacant and derelict homes. One can get a grant of up to 70,000e to turn a derelict house or building into your permanent home or a rental property. The lands benefit from extensive road frontage and within easy access of major road networks including N52 and M6. The subject lands are delineated by natural hedging, all in permanent pasture and of majority good quality grazing lands. Due to the topography, excellent sight lines and vast road frontage, the lands would be ideal for the construction of a dwelling house subject to the necessary planning consent.
