Estuary farm nestling in idyllic location

In all likelihood, this 88-acre holding listed with Lisney Auctioneers was of most interest to its previous owners for its exquisite location snaking alongside the estuary of the River Blackwater.

It's overlooking the tidal stretch of one of Munster’s premium waterways as it enters the sea near Youghal.

This property – located on the Waterford (left) bank – is a good deal more than just a pretty face, however.

According to selling agent David McCarthy, it holds a good deal of agricultural quality too: “There’s 29 acres of woodland but there is also about 59 acres of average-to-good-quality agricultural land,” says David of the receivership sale.

The property is located in the townland of Ardsallagh, about 7km north of Youghal and 30km from Dungarvan on an elevated site.

The asking price of €600,000 for this impressive property is based upon a valuation of approximately €2,000-3,000 per acre on the woodland plus around €10,000/acre on the remaining agricultural land.

There is also a derelict farmhouse with stunning views for anyone who might be tempted to reanimate the holding as a residential one.
