The 12-acre farm for sale with Dan Fleming auctioneer at Enniskeane in west Cork.

A bite-sized piece of West Cork property near the twin villages of Enniskeane and Ballineen is currently for sale with Blarney-based auctioneer Dan Fleming.

The 12-acre non-residential holding is located in the townland of Teadies Upper, just 1km north of Enniskeane and Balllineen.

The two villages are a familiar sight to any of those who travel to West Cork using the local main road, the R586, that goes through Bandon, Dunmanway and Drimoleague.

With its proximity to the village and the generous amount of road frontage it enjoys, the property for sale will be of great interest to nearby farmers.

The area is alive with plenty of progressive farming, dominated in the main by the dairy sector.

Although this land has only just come on the market, its small size should also help to ensure plenty of interest.

Bandon is 18km away, while the smaller market town of Dunmanway is 15km farther west.

“It’s very close to the main road,” says selling agent Dan Fleming.

It’s all laid out in grass and it has a never-failing supply of water, which is coming from a stream.

This is good quality land in the main, he says, with the exception of a small portion: “There’s only perhaps an acre or an acre and a half that’s a bit rough and that is in need of attention but the rest of it is lovely land.”

The property is one that would suit a wide variety of farmers: “It could suit someone who might look to put a residence on it and do a bit of hobby farming… or it would still be a good addition to someone who was expanding their holding.”

The price expectation is approximately €10,000 per acre “or a shade above that”, according to Dan.

Given its location, affordability, size and ease of access, it could fetch more than “a shade above”.
