The recent auction of Parkstown House on 182ac  in Ballivor illustrated the recent jump in property prices. It sold under the hammer for €3.15m or €17,300/ac.

The property includes a wide range of farm buildings with accommodation for 550 cattle and storage for 3,000t of grain.

Handled jointly by Savills and Loman Dempsey, it went to an Ireland-based bidder for €150,000 above the guide price.
