Modern meets traditional at 46-acre property in west Cork

A 46-ACRE residential holding at Coolbawn, Caheragh, deep in west Cork. has “good life” potential.

The house and farm are as traditional as you get. Yet, the house is fully modernised, and the farm has modern buildings. The sale includes a milk quota of 17,000 gallons, and new owners could get on with farming immediately.

Going organic could be an option. Vegetable beds and an orchard are in place, and the land is arranged tidily in one block with road frontage, and streams on two boundaries.

There is good quality grazing, says Liam Hodnett of SWS Property Services Skibbereen, and the property is all accessible via a laneway.

The farm has two slatted houses, a cubicle house and calf shed and a six-unit herringbone milking parlour.

The two-storey extended farmhouse is in very good condition, says Hodnett. He is looking for offers in the region of €900,000.
