DescriptionSituated in the picturesque crossroads village of Drumone, this lovely compact 7 acre holding has frontage to two roads, one with a river running alongside. Laid under old pasture, sheltered by mature hedgerow and trees, it is set out in a single L-shaped field of rolling topography that is generally elevated above the road. A portion of this field (on the Moylagh Road side) had planning permission for a commercial unit, now expired. While one could explore those options again, this holding would appear to make the perfect small agricultural holding with a site for an exclusive one-off custom build house or alternatively for a cluster of houses, subject to obtaining planning permission.
Given the apparent high quality of these lands, this compact block of ground would suit a variety of agri and eco enterprises. Lands in the area are particularly well renowned for their stock fattening qualities. The offering of this parcel for sale gives local farmers the perfect opportunity to extend their holdings with the possibility of an uplift or windfall through exploiting its development potential over time. Alternatively those in search of the good life and self-sufficiency could have a field-day here, pardon the pun. One could give consideration here to the idea of establishing a small hobby farm, even an organic enterprise. The possibilities are wide ranging.
Delvin and Carnaross with their respective livestock marts and the Liffey Meats plant at Ballyjamesduff are all within fifteen to twenty minutes drive away. The Traditional Meat Company (TMC) is only down the road, about 1km away.
