AN EXCEPTIONAL coastal setting in Co Kerry, with cliffs at a boundary, is a bonus with this Ballyheigue farm.
New to the market with Pat Crean of Sherry FitzGerald Stephenson Crean, with an €880,000 asking price for just over 67 acres, on offer in one to three lots, the property includes a milk quota of 124,600 litres.
It is already under early offer, midway in the €700,000s, but won’t be sold for that. There’s value at the asking price, says the agent, reporting interest so far from young farmers, and those looking for an outside farm.
“A lot of interest is being shown from younger farmers under 35 who want to take advantage of the tax reliefs and also get their own parcel going, as well as farming at home,” says Mr Crean.
The residential farm at Keel, Glenderry, can be bought with the house on 22 acres; lot two of 45 acres can be bought on its own; or lot three is the entire property.
The dormer-style home is said to be in very good condition, and there’s a farmyard with a modern four-bay slatted wintering unit, milking parlour, silage pits sheds, etc, plus lots of road frontage. The land quality is said to be excellent, with neighbouring farms a mixture of tillage and grazing. “The neighbouring land uses reflect that the land is adequately able to take tillage farming,” he advises. The ground is naturally drained with a south-facing gentle gradient, running to the sea. The farm has expansive views of Ballyheigue bay, Tralee bay, the Maherees, the coastline and the Atlantic.
