Offers for ‘convenient roadside holding’

A nice chunk of non-residential quality pasture in West Cork is as accurate a manner as any to describe a 15.5-acre non-residential farm for sale with Dunmanway-based auctioneers Lehane & Associates Ltd.

A nice chunk of non-residential quality pasture in West Cork is as accurate a manner as any to describe a 15.5-acre non-residential farm for sale with Dunmanway-based auctioneers Lehane & Associates Ltd, writes Conor Power.

Situated in the townland of Lettergorman, the holding is presented in two lots and is 8km south of the busy market town of Dunmanway and about 17km from Clonakilty.

“We have 12.5 acres of good land in pasture,” says selling agent Daniel Lehane.

“It’s fairly level and it’s laid out in three fields. On the other side of the road, we have three acres in a long strip running by the side of the main road. Half of that is laid out in pasture and the other half is essentially scrubland.

“The farm is being offered in its entirety or in lots. The majority of the interest so far is in the 12.5 acres.”

The overall price guide is pitched at €115,000, putting it at an average of €8,000 per acre. The agent confirms that there is already an offer on the entire holding of €100,000 after a week of on the market.

This part of Munster has seen some strong prices achieved over the last three to four years and there would be no shortage of local progressive farmers looking to extend their holding.

“I suppose that if a person wanted an outside farm for a few cuts of silage or rearing heifers, it’s a nice little block.”

According to the agent, there is a total of about 700m of road frontage between the two portions, which are on either side of a public road. The property has potential to be improved by the next owner and, he says, “you couldn’t rule out the possibility of a site further down the road.”

The holding doesn’t come with any entitlements and there aren’t any services on site but it has been successfully used for grazing over several years.
