This unique 40 acre farm is located approximately 5 minutes North of Gorey town, with road frontage onto the R772 and only 2 minutes drive from junction 22 of the M11 motorway. It represents a rare opportunity to acquire a superb roadside holding suitable for a variety of agricultural / equestrian uses. The property is in a truly idyllic setting, approached by a tree lined private avenue leading to the house and farmyard. While the house is in need of complete refurbishment it is highly significant that under the current Wexford Development Plan the Planning Authority is favourably disposed towards existing housing as a sustainable means of providing accommodation. If such a house cannot be refurbished they will generally allow planning for a re-build. This normally does not need to meet local needs criteria, which, under current planning guidelines for Co. Wexford is quite rare. (Co. Wexford Development Plan – Chapter 4 Paragraph 220.127.116.11 – Table No. 13 - Replacement and Refurbishment of Dwellings refers). There is a range of outbuildings also in need of refurbishment. The land, which is in excellent heart and well watered is laid out in 10 divisions, all with mature natural boundaries. Current land usage is as follows:- Circa 15 acres grassland and a further 22 acres under trees. The 15 acres of arable land has been recently ploughed and reseeded. The trees, a mixture of Oak, Alder and Spruce are 14 years planted and provide an annual tax-free income with a dividend payable on first thinning which is due in 1 year. Within the landholding, and separate to the main avenue there are truly charming tree lined laneways – quite a rare feature on farms today – which give the farm a lovely traditional ambiance reminiscent of bygone days. Residential farms such as this in prime locations rarely come on the market and this particular property, with its truly idyllic setting, combines all the charm of a very privately located farm with ease of access to all amenities of the thriving town of Gorey which is only a few minutes drive away. Junction 22 of the M11 North of Gorey is a mere 2 minute drive away with commuting time to South Dublin being approximately 45 minutes.
