A non-residential 31-acre holding in the townland of Knoppoge near Bandon will make an interesting prospect in the weeks to come.
Land parcels of this size and quality have gone for strong prices in the recent past and there’s nothing to suggest that this particular piece won’t make somewhere between €12,000 to €15,000 an acre given the current positive economic climate.
According to selling agent Ernest Forde of Clonakilty-based Hodnett Forde, this non-residential holding is of the best quality land. It’s currently under winter barley but it would lend itself admirably to any farming activity.
There are entitlements going with the property that are currently worth between €5,000 and €6,000 per annum. It has direct roadside access onto two public roads, with water and electricity and is 8km south of Bandon.
The beauty of such a sized holding is that it attracts a wide range of client types — from keen hobby farmer to expanding dairy farmer and everyone in between.
