Located in North Cork, a very desirable non-residential farm is currently for sale jointly with Mallow-based auctioneers OSN Properties and Liam Keating of Dublin-based agents Knight Frank.
According to selling agent Noreen O’Sullivan (of OSN Properties), there has been a good deal of interest already, even if viewings are somewhat curtailed, for the time being, under anti-virus movement restrictions.
“It’s all in one lot,” says Noreen. “This is good grazing land and the location is very good.”
The 83.67-acre property is located in the townland of Dromore, approximately 3km south-west of Mallow and close to the N20, making it a very convenient location that will widen its appeal amongst larger farmers looking to expand, and starter farmers, or even hobby farmers who might be thinking in terms of a long-term home here.
Access to the land is good, with some outbuildings located centrally, and accessed by a good central roadway.
“There’s a four-column hay shed and a good concrete base to the yard,” says Noreen.
The land on this farm is well established as an excellent holding for grazing and silage production.
This part of Co Cork is strongly associated with grazing land for dairy cattle or beef herds.
“Farmers always need more land,” says Noreen, “especially a dairy farmer who would need more silage and grazing acres. It would be suitable too for a young farmer starting off, because the farmyard is in the middle of the holding. So, if he wanted to build a house there over time, it might be a possibility.”
There are approximately 125m of road frontage onto a minor road, with the N20 Cork-Limerick road, and the Cork-Limerick rail line, both located approximately 500m east of the farm.
The internal farm roadway gives access to most of the fields, and there is a good water and electricity supply.
“It could also suit people coming back from abroad that have spare money to invest,” says Noreen, “because the location will suit them. They could let it out, it could be used as a pension fund. It could suit any number of uses.”
The price guide is set at €800,000. At €9,500 per acre, this is a reasonable asking price that will surely attract plenty of interest that will, over the course of the coming weeks, translate into offers. A substantial quality holding like this will surely interest a variety of suitors.
