About this property

  • Ballymoate Farm extends to about 78.2 acres of which about 55 acres is productive ploughable grassland and about 22 acres comprises diverse woodland, including about 13 acres of Oak and Ash planted in 1995. Situated in a ring-fenced block, the fields at Ballymoate are of good workable size and shape for contemporary farming. Positioned close to the village of Glenealy, the land is in a convenient location and well serviced for agricultural activity. The land is bound by a stream which runs along the eastern boundary providing a natural water source for the land.

    The land is accessed via a minor road (L1096) which connects Glenealy to Ashford. Access to the land is at the western side of the farm through double farm gates, suitable for heavy machinery. The topography rises from about 45 metres (150 feet) above sea level on the north-eastern boundary to a high point on the north-western boundary of 82 metres (270 feet) above sea level. It has approximately 207 metres of road frontage.

    Farm Buildings
    There are several farm buildings on the southern boundary of the land which are accessed from the road via an internal track. The buildings include a 4-bay Dutch Barn with a lean-to at either side, a former dairy, store and livestock handling facilities.
