Additional Information

Location /Potential for Holiday Lets or Dwelling

The farm land is located in an area known as the Windy Gap, which is part of the Slieve Croob scenic loop. The Finnis Souterrain and Legananny Dolmen are both within walking distance. The many paths and country lanes of the farm and it surrounding area would make this an ideal location for; Mountain bikes, hill walking, or indeed those with a pull towards the equestrian life style.
In the centre of the land, some 700 meters of lane from the Slievenaboley road, stands two farm dwellings in a disused farmyard, the dwellings and yard date back to the days of tenant farming. The yard itself while sheltered has North facing views that on a clear day, stretch to the Sperrins.
Further to the views from the existing yard, views from field 58 and 59 include much of Northern Ireland; from the Mourne Mountains to the Sperrin’s with to the North East, Belfast’s Black Mountain, the view can only be described as expansive, the area certainly deserves its recognition as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Located in the beautiful rural countryside, this is an ideal opportunity to purchase an excellent site within walking distance to the Finnis Souterrain and Legananny Doleman.

Ideal for those interested in farming, equestrian or leisure activities, the full potential of this unique holding may only be appreciated on inspection.

In 2018, the current owner explored the possibility of erecting a farm shed, this led to a site visit as per the redacted note below. As such the senior planning officer gave a written opinion that the site was a development opportunity. The current owner did not pursue either the development opportunity, or the farm shed any further.
The yard’s garden is surrounded by mature trees as seen in the picture below.

The farmyard itself has some of the best Northerly facing views in Co.Down. The laneway and the trees give the site an exclusivness, a sense of safety and peace, a place where country life may be lived to the full.

The lane traverses the boundary of the land to the Slievenaboley Rd, while the lane has shared access rights to the adjacent lands, those lands have been planted with trees’ which has resulted in the lanes use by the neighbouring land owner being significantly reduced.
The lane’s ownership will remain with the lands/yard, therefore allowing the new owner to maintain and/or develop the lane to meet their needs.
The yard includes derelict stone out houses which could be restored. The stone buildings if restored could be re-integrated into the farmyard as (For example) storage, stables or indeed as additional residential type accommodation.

Yard and Lane marked in amber
The land has road frontage on to The Slievenaboley Rd, at field 36, the remainder of the land has machinery access via a lane that leads to the yard. There is also vehicle access form the same road to land south of the farm yard, for example fields 59, 58, 56, 54, 50 etc. Finally there is walking access to field 45A from the said Slievenaboley rd.
In recent years the land has been used solely for the purpose of sheep farming, all fields are suitable for cultivation, excluding fields 58 and 31B.
Field 31B is very much marshland, it is awash with multiple natural springs, an eco-system that has been left untouched for many years.
Field 58 is a mix of Rock and Sand, while of low agricultural value, the plot, what with its upswept land on all sides, would make for a very productive green energy site.

The land can carry livestock all year round, the footing is predominantly dry. Field 31a, had been divided into two fields in 2021. In part this was to allow for better grazing rotation, the division has also assisted drainage repairs, these repairs remain as work in progress for the summer of 2022.
The sale can include single farm payment entitlements. The Land attracts just short of a 20ha allowance, to a total current value of £5.800 PA.
The land and the entitlements are currently leased in two lots, both leases run until December 31st 2022.
The land is in its basic format ideal farm land, however the land closest to the Windy gap, is ideal for green electricity generation, should that be solar or wind. No doubt further consultation with planners would be required to explore this option.
