Dairy farmers will be interested in attractive 26 acres near Watergrasshill

Auctioneer Dan Fleming says the owners are open to any offers, but he does suggest a guide price of €8,000 to €10,000 an acre for the land, which can be bought either in its entirety or in lots.

Measuring a little over 26 acres, this property located at Killuntin South, Kildinan, Watergrasshill, has extensive road frontage. It is located 5.2km from Watergrasshill and around 5km from Glenville.

It is fully laid out in grass. It is fenced and paddocked, and is all easily accessible from the roadway. It also comes with a cattle crush, water and electricity.

“We can sell it in one of more lots,” said Dan Fleming. “This property is ideal for a farmer who is looking to expand. The land has already had silage cut off it, so you could use it for grazing or for additional silage.

“It would be a very useful site for keeping heifers or dry cows, or supplying feed for extra cattle. It could also be very attractive to a hobby farmer. Given the location just a few miles from the village and near the Dublin road, it might also be an attractive site for someone starting an enterprise, or for anyone working in Cork city.”

While the site would have appeal for residential use, its excellent road access and its proximity to the main Cork-Dublin road would suggest that it is more likely to be bought for either farming or commercial use.

The accompanying aerial photograph shows that the land is nicely divided into a potential four lots. It is currently in use as a working farm.

“It is a very nice piece of ground,” said Mr Fleming, who is based in Blarney, Co Cork. “We can sell it in one or more lots. We are hoping it will make up to €10,000 an acre, but we are open to all offers.”

Given this guide, the property is estimated to be worth up to €260,000 in its entirety.
