The selling agents outlined that the farm – which includes good grazing lands – is situated along the banks of the Gweestion River, a single story 3-bedroom house, a semi-derelict house and outbuildings.
It is located in the townland of Carrowmore and primarily consists of a large block of grazing land plus various smaller blocks; it could also be suitable for forestry, subject to planning approval.
“The land varies in quality and includes pasture suitable for cutting, as well as permanent pasture.”
“There is good scope to develop the land into a quality, extensive grazing farm.” the selling agent explained.
Lot 1 - house and land at Carrowmore
The lands are primarily laid out in one large block, accessed via the eastern side of the Lismirrane Road across a bridge. The land in lot 1 comprises about 170-acres.
“A hard-core track passing through the land leads up to the heart of the farm, where there is a two-storey farmhouse of traditional construction.”
“The house has been vacant for some time and is in a semi-derelict state of repair.”
The old farmyard is located to the rear of the farmhouse and includes outbuildings, a cattle crush and holding pen; the lands have not been farmed recently but were used for grazing of livestock.
With some improvement, silage and hay crops could be cut in fields, according to the selling agent. The permanent pasture and grazing land are situated on the northern side.
