The market for holdings with potential of around 15 acres is a particular type.
These are properties that will sooner catch the eye of a hobby farmer arguably before another type of client.
Generally speaking, the average farmer who is looking to expand is searching for something clean and easy to access without too many additional complications whilst the hobby farmer is looking at a house to refurbish, as well as some outbuildings.
Thus, a quality property which is arriving new to market from Clonakilty-based auctioneers Hodnett-Forde Property Services should logically be of osme considerable interest to the kind of client who is seeking a home with a good number of acres of land attached on which to practice some small-scale farming.
The holding in question is a 15-acre one situated in the townland of Cullen — just to the east of the village of Riverstick, a charming and well serviced village midway between Cork City and Kinsale.
The traditional dwelling is surrounded by a nice degree of maturity and is in need of renovation, along with some useful outbuildings in need of modernisation.
Riverstick is just over 1 kilometre away while the historical gourmet marina town of Kinsale is 12km to the south, with Cork Airport (12km) and Cork (18km) within easy reach.
The land is of good quality, according to the agents, thus making it a prize well worth having a close look at for the many progressive farmers in the area.
For the expanding dairy farmer or equestrian operator, this farm ticks a number of important boxes — good road frontage, quality pasture land and excellent access to markets.
Offers in excess of €300,000 are being sought, representing a remarkable €20,000/acre.
The agents confirm that the property is currently under offer. It will be interesting to see which sector wins.
