€15,000 per acre sought for 10 acres

This 10-acre holding overlooking Clonakilty Harbour is for sale, situated a kilometre from the town.

Set in a stunning location overlooking Clonakilty Harbour, a 10-acre non-residential holding in the townland of Youghals is in the heart of a high-quality land belt.

The property is all in one block with direct access from a coast road that leads from the busy and award-winning town of Clonakilty to the superb beach at Inchydoney.

Selling agent John Hodnett of Clonakilty-based Hodnett-Forde Property Services describes it as a very attractive coastal land holding.

“It’s a south-facing holding,” says John, “and very securely fenced.

“It’s top-quality land, the best of land, really, and suitable for any crop.”

The property is currently growing beet and according to the selling agents, there have already been a number of enquiries on the holding, but no offers yet.

One of its main attractions is its proximity to Clonakilty, just a kilometre away.

“It’s early days yet,” says John. “I suppose it would fulfil the requirements of a hobby farmer, being so close to town.”

He adds that the holding won’t be sold “subject to planning permission”. It’s being sold as it is.

So far, those enquiring about the property have been a mixture of people from farming and non-farming backgrounds.

It seems to be the kind of land parcel equally attractive to both of these customer types.

The combination of its quality, size and convenience make it a sought-after commodity in these parts.

The selling agents are confident of a strong per-acre price.

According to John, they have recently concluded sales nearby (in Cruary West and Derryvreen, specifically, both of which were featured on these pages earlier this year) of similar-sized holdings.

Based on these and other sales over the last few years, they would expect this property to achieve something in the region of €15,000 per acre.
