Located in the heart of the Golden Vale in south Co Limerick, near the Cork border, a 53-acre residential holding is currently listed with the Kilmallock office of GVM Auctioneers and is, unsurprisingly, generating a lot of interest.

Quality throughout is one of the main attractions of this farm. Not only does it possess some of the finest grassland in the area, it also comes with good quality outbuildings and a home of superb quality.

The property is located in the townland of Fort East, 5.5km north of Charleville, Co Cork; 14km west of Kilmallock; and roughly halfway between Limerick and Mallow (each about 33km to the north and south).

“All the land has been re-seeded over the last number of years,” says selling agent John O’Connell, “with a central passageway through it, excellent quality land. It’s well located in terms of access to main roads and motorways.”

In addition, there is a home of high quality that is befitting of the class of land for sale here.

Accommodation includes an entrance hallway, kitchen, walk-in hotpress, sitting room, utility room and three bedrooms.

The condition of the property is excellent throughout, according to the selling agents, and it features solar panel heating, which saves on fuel costs.

As if that weren’t enough, the package is completed by an excellent collection of out buildings and out-offices. These include slatted sheds, stables, hay barns and workshops. “The outbuildings are in excellent condition,” says John, “they’ve all been built in the last ten years or so.”

Although the farm doesn’t have road frontage, access to the property is via an uncomplicated and well- established right of way.

There are also entitlements coming with the farm, further details of which can be obtained from the agents.

The price guide of €720,000 is a realistic figure, considering the value of the overall package on offer.

Interest has been good so far, according to the agents.

In short, this is a farm that will possibly appeal more to the beef farmer, hobby farmer, or the equestrian farmer, rather than to a dairying operation, but time will tell over the coming weeks and months.
