IT used to have some of the most desirable real estate in the country, but Kenmare has also been hit by the downturn.
The decision to auction off a number of holiday homes in the Kerry town last month drew flak for its potential to depress property prices in the region. As it happened, there was a huge response to the sale, and all of the units were sold within days.
In the dying weeks of the year, Tom Spillane now offers a 52-acre farm at Templenoe, Kenmare, just five miles from the town.
In a very picturesque setting on Kenmare Bay, the property is a grazing farm which may also be suitable for forestry, says Spillane.
In two blocks, the land is bisected by a public road, and comes with plenty of road frontage, he says. In an elevated position, it doesn’t have sea views, but it does have a number of derelict out-offices, including an old cottage, which could be used to secure planning for refurbishment or a replacement dwelling, subject to local clauses.
The agent is looking for offers in the region of €180,000 for this private treaty sale.
