28-acre Midleton farm rare offering at €425k

This farm at Whiterock can be sold in lots.

PRETTY as a picture and on the outskirts of Midleton town, this lovely old farmstead is a new market entrant with Michael Piggott of Sherry FitzGerald O’Donovan.

Running to just under 28 acres, and with good road frontage onto four fields, the farm comprises top quality land, which has been used for tillage and grazing. It is quite a rare sale, says Piggott.

Located at Whiterock, and within a short distance of the town and an easy commute to Cork city, the property will appeal to residential site buyers as well as farmer buyers, and can be sold in lots, he says.

The old farmyard and traditional long cottage are offered with 0.7 acres at a guide price of €75,000, and the remainder as a land only sale for €375,000. Or the entire property is guided priced at €425,000. The sale is by private treaty.

The quaint old farmhouse has a corrugated roof, but was probably originally thatched and because of its age, it may be a protected structure, which could prevent its demolition, on foot of a house-for-house planning application. It comes with a main kitchen-living room and two bedrooms and a bathroom. Mains water and a septic tank are in place.

The lands are level, fertile and top quality with easy access, including a cul-de-sac laneway to the house and yard.

The property is just off the main Cork-Rossslare road, the N25.
