Agricultural Property Location: Old Dublin Road, Blackstoops, Enniscorthy, Wexford, Co. Wexford
This is a well-located agricultural holding with approx. 49.8 Ha. (123 acres) of land of which 30.4 Ha. (75 acres) are currently zoned for development. This is a most attractive situation only 1.8km from the town centre and overlooking the River Slaney to which there is 1.6km of river frontage. The lands in sale are accessed via a freehold laneway which also provides access to the owner of an adjoining bungalow (not in sale). These are generally good quality arable lands and provide both tillage and mixed pasture. They are undulating in nature and slope down towards the River Slaney.
There are smaller areas of forestry which we understand do not provide any financial return. While the majority of the lands are fertile and are well maintained, the low-lying areas of land along the River Slaney are vulnerable to flooding and more suited to summer pasture. The lands will be of interest to farmers, developers, and investors for its medium to long term future development potential (subject to continuing zoning and planning permission).
Approximately 73 acres of the subject lands are zoned for mixed use development under the Enniscorthy Town and Environs Development Plan 2008-2014 which was extended and has effect until a new County Development Plan is adopted. An additional area of approx. 1.9 acres is currently zoned residential under the outgoing development plan and has frontage to the Avondale Estate. We understand a new Wexford County Development Plan will be on public display in 2021. Please note that any intending purchasers should make their own enquiries with the Wexford County Council Planning Department in this regard.
