A landholding in County Meath which includes 69 acres of ‘excellent quality’ grassland has been put on the market with a guide price of 1.2 million euros.

The property at Stackallen, which is close to Navan, also includes a house, a farmyard and an abandoned cottage.

Sales agents, Bannon Auctioneers, said there was some flexibility as to how the property could be sold, with the lots on offer ‘not set in stone’.

Potential buyers have the option of buying the entire property, which has an asking price of 1.2 million euros.

A second lot includes a former residence and farmyard on 28.47 acres, while the third lot offers buyers the option of a derelict cottage on nearly 41 acres.

John Bannon of Bannon Auctioneers, who is handling the sale, said Agriland that there has been “good interest” in the property since it was listed last week and that further viewings are scheduled for this Saturday morning (January 22).

He explained that many potential buyers are couples looking to build a home on the property, 8km from Navan and 52km from Dublin.

Bannon said some local farmers had shown interest in the land, which he said had been well maintained by the tenant sheep farmers.

The free-draining ground is divided into several large, well-fenced fields, with 240m of good road frontage.

Bannon described the holding, which has three separate entries, as “one of the best holdings to come to market in recent months.”

He pointed out that the property was very private and included a walled main entrance with gates.

The agent explained that the property includes hay barns, paddocks and numerous outbuildings.

He said the Co. Meath offer offers ‘stunning views’ and as well as being an attractive prospect for farmers, it could be converted into equestrian property, if required.
