Prime grassland for sale in three quality parcels

A substantial, quality grassland farm on the outskirts of Clondulane, near Fermoy, Co Cork, is a new market entrant this week with Dan Fleming of Fleming Auctioneers.

The residential property comprises a total of 97 acres but is being sold in a choice of three lots, or in the entire, through private treaty.

A top quality farm, the land is in two blocks, with the first, at Curragh Lower, Fermoy, comprising 42 acres and including a four-bedroomed bungalow set at the road side and also a range of attractive out offices, according to Mr Fleming.

This portion can be sold in two lots, he adds, and he doesn’t give specific breakdowns, leaving it open to potential buyers to view the property and make the relevant offers.

The remainder of the farm is at Kilbarry, a short distance down the road, and this is a clean land sale with a good road frontage on one side and the Blackwater river on the other.

There’s an existing right of way here to a fishing club, who also have a hut near the river, one of the country’s finest salmon fisheries.

The main house is a four bedroom bungalow in good condition and while it has older out offices, it also includes a silage layout, lean-tos and hay barns. The land has been used for grazing cattle and was let up to recently but is now clear for sale.

There’s going to be good interest locally, says Mr Fleming, because this amount of land and of such a good quality, rarely comes up in the Clondulane area, a much sought after part of Fermoy, he adds.

The general guide price given for the land is in excess of €10,000 per acre, but that could be a conservative estimate as land hasn’t sold here for a while and there should be a good demand.

Considering the very bullish sums paid in Mid to West Cork recently, it will be interesting to see how this area of north-east Cork fares.
