Connaughton Auctioneers successfully sold, by public auction, the well-known ‘Fleming’s’ in Mountbellew recently. With over 50 people in attendance at the auction in the Malt House the property received an opening bid of €100,000 with four bidders in all.
The property was put on the open market and sold for €155,000 to a local business.
Speaking to the Roscommon People, auctioneer Ivan Connaughton said: “We were delighted to be agents for the sale of this landmark property. With improving market conditions and higher demand for town centre property like Fleming’s, we now require properties both residential and commercial in Mountbellew Town for disappointed underbidders.
“In particular we have a client looking for a bungalow residence adjacent to the town centre for use as a retirement property. We intend to hold more individual auctions for properties in the coming months and invite anyone who requires a free valuation to call our office 090-6663700.”
