Top class farm with lots of potential

AS GOOD a bit of ground as you’d get — that’s Micheal Barry’s summation of a tidy, 60-acre farm at Ballinvoher, Castletownroche, Co Cork.

The property has top class limestone soil, says the Property Partners Dick Barry and Son agent, and is good, level land with lots of road frontage.

In two main blocks, the main portion comes with a traditional, three-storey residence and some 42 acres, while on the opposite side of the road, there are 18 acres.

There could be some site potential on the farm, says Barry and with the way it’s laid out, the property could be sold in lots, he says.

The land is level and sound with half in pasture and the remainder in stubble.

It’s a retirement sale and the property had been let for some time, but is in excellent condition.

The farmhouse is three-bedroomed and will need modernisation, but is in good structural order. The yard includes a three column haybarn and lean-to and the property is close to Fermoy, Mallow and the village of Ballyhooley.

The guide price , a straight €1 million, reflects the quality of the land and the agent is open to negotiation on this private treaty sale. He’s also prepared to sell in lots and the property could also have site potential, depending on the purchaser.
