73.5-acre farm offered for sale in up to five divisions

AN interesting farm holding in the Mealagh Valley, near Bantry, has a bit of something for everyone.

The 73.5-acre holding, located seven miles from Bantry, at Barnagowlane, is in three divisions. It can be sold in five lots or one, says John O’Neill of Celtic Properties.

The executor’s sale by auction will be held in the Bantry Bay Hotel on November 7. The property includes a three-bedroom farmhouse with a range of stone outbuildings, which may appeal to the doer-upper, and which can be sold with nine good quality acres, says O’Neill. That is Lot B; Lot A is the entire farm, for which the guide price is in excess of €550,000.

Lot C is 34.5 acres of mixed quality land that wraps around the farmhouse and its nine acres. It is for sale on its own or together with lot B.

The remaining lots, D, E, and F, are stand-alone divisions close to the farmyard; one lot is seven acres of good quality land, suitable for afforestation, says O’Neill. It adjoins existing forestry.

Lot E is good quality agricultural land, with good road frontage making it suitable as a residential site for a local buyer. Lot F could offer the same potential; it is a low-lying holding of 4.25 acres. In a beautiful west Cork valley, the property is a rare enough sale, and the agents have given it a lowish entry level, prior to auction.
