Farm for sale in a spectacular West Cork coastal location

A 27-acre holding in a spectacular coastal location in West Cork is newly listed with Dunmanway-based auctioneers Daniel Lehane & Co.

The farm is located in the townland of Dundeady, near Castlefreke, in a very fertile corner of West Cork, close to the vibrant town of Clonakilty.

According to selling agent Daniel Lehane, this is a very good quality holding, and it is being presented to the market in two lots.

Lot 1 is a house on 1.3 acres, and Lot 2 consists of the remaining 26 acres, approximately, with farmyard and outbuildings.

“It has a beautiful view over the Long Strand and out onto the Galley Head as well,” says Daniel.

“The farm stretches out onto the coastline to the south, so you have coastal frontage with it.”

The house, Daniel says, is in need of major refurbishment, although it’s structurally sound.

“The price guide on the house and 1.3 acres is €250,000. The guide price on the land and outbuildings is €12,000 per acre.”

Although the possibility exists in principle for the entire holding to be sold as one lot, so far the interest is such that this is very unlikely, according to Daniel.

“It’s available in two lots, and that seems to be where most of the interest is at the moment. The original dwelling house that went with the farm is actually in the farmyard.

“It might help with a planning situation in the future.

“The land quality is quite good. As you go south, it rises up, but you also have some spectacular views too.”

It’s not every farm that comes with its own stretch of West Cork coastline, as this one does.

Most of the property is in grass, with just a small portion of it consisting of a ploughed field where crops were grown last year.

“The pasture would be old enough, and most of the farm would probably need to be re-seeded but what is there is good quality,” says Daniel.

He says the interest for both the house and the land is strong, with enquiries coming from “all corners of the country and beyond”.
