Additional Information


Dwellings on 8 acres plus 4 large Poly Tunnels

Fermanagh Lakeland Properties offer to the market a unique opportunity to purchase a small holding in a truly scenic and beautiful setting in North Leitrim.

This property is certain to attract widespread interest. The work to date has been meticulously planned over a number of years and the discerning purchaser will quickly identify the opportunity to complete the work and add significant value.

The poly tunnels are under construction. The old dairy is habitable and is currently unoccupied. The garage doubles up to complement the current living accommodation and boasts an electric instant shower and toilet facilities. The cottage benefits from planning permission and part of the work has being undertaken. The planning expired in January 2015 and the new owners will have to renew the pernmission.  Upon request, Fermanagh Lakeland Properties will supply the contact details of the architect associated with the property.

The property is bounded on the west and north by the Glenaniff River and the opportunity arises to harness the water flow to generate energy. The poly tunnels which measure 30 meters by 4 meters offer the opportunity to become self sufficient in a wide range of food stuffs and with the large volume of space therein lies the opportunity to run a business by producing fruits & vegetables – subject to planning..

The poly tunnels were deliberately set on their current location due to the natural drainage fall and over a number of years the owners have built up significant tree and hedges to provide sufficient shelter from the westerly winds. As our pictures show tunnel 1 boasts a table top style filled with manure and soil for 18 meters and additional room to propagate and the opportunity for seeds to germinate. Tunnel 2 is part designed with leisure in purpose and the exquisite hand built stone features are also filled with manure and soil. In addition there is a significant area of raised beds with support bars for vegetables such as tomatoes. Tunnels 3 and 4 are under construction. Tunnel 3 is planned as raised bed and manure and soil are in place. Tunnel 4 sits on bog and it is designated to grow fruit. Membrane will be laid on all floors to control weeds. All tunnels are drained and there is room to dig a reservoir to facilitate irrigation.

The current owner is prepared to supply the covers for tunnels 3 &4 as part of the deal to sell the property.
