Ideal as equestrian centre

AN interesting and mixed property package is on offer at the moment at Pine Hill, Clashbredane, Kilmichael.

This residential sale is ideal for part-time or full-time equestrian-types because it comes with a range of modern buildings that would make it ideal as a hobby farm, riding centre, or even at a push, mini-stud.

On the market with Killian Lynch of SWS Property Services, Macroom, the Pine Hill property is located just outside Macroom town in s a highly desirable commuting zone.

And for that reason there should be strong interest from other quarters, too, as the sale includes full planning permission for a 2,400 square foot, two-storey house.

On site value alone that could be worth from €300,000 upwards, while the asking price for the property in the entire is €600,000, with an offer over €500,000 already achieved, says Lynch.

This is a good indication of interest, as the rest of the property market is showing a slow response, even at the offer stage.

The budget has had a lot to do with this, as purchasers held out in the hope of a change, or a widening of bands in the stamp duty regime.

The main house is a traditional farmstead which has been tastefully renovated in a country style.

And there’s plenty of room on offer: the house has three bedrooms, with ensuite master, a large kitchen/dining room, a living room, study, and a sitting room, as well as main bathroom and guest WC.

Outbuildings include a decent indoor arena of 65’ by 98’ and a slightly smaller, outdoor arena.

There are seven stables available and the property also comes with a haybarn and storage area.

The five acres of land that comes with the farm is paddocked and there’s good road frontage on the western boundary with a private lane leading to the farmhouse and yard.

Located within five minutes of Tarelton village 10 minutes from Macroom and a half hour’s drive from Cork city, it’s an ideal opportunity for an equine enthusiast, says Killian Lynch.
