Clonakilty-based auctioneer Henry O’Leary is offering an intriguing prospect of a 15.5-acre holding in the heart of the village of Leap.
“It’s 15½ acres but what’s interesting about it is that 8½ acres of it are within the development boundary of the village,” says Henry.
This executor sale is priced at €200,000 (€12,900/acre) — a little above nominal agricultural value.
The property extends from the eastern end almost to the middle of the village.
“At the end of the day, if it doesn’t catch the eye of someone from the development point of view, or of someone who wants to sit on it for a while, then it will be sold as farmland, and at possibly a little less than the guide price”
