Near €14,000 per acre price tag for 109 acres in Ovens, Co Cork

‘A very rare opportunity’ is how Midleton-based selling agent David Keane describes the sale of a 109-acre prime roadside holding at Kilcrea, Ovens, Co Cork.

Located in the heart of dairying country to the west of Cork City, the convenience, size, and quality of this farm (currently all in tillage) makes for an overall package of the type that many serious farmers will have been eagerly awaiting.

The farm is just 2.5km from the main Cork-Macroom (N22) road, 6km from Ballincollig, and less than 20km from Cork city centre.

“It’s top-quality land,” says David, “and it has spectacular views of the valley below, as well as having a prime location.

“It has excellent road frontage, a lot of public road, and one part of it has its own cul-de-sac road.”

The property is also described as having an excellent water and electricity supply, as well as having a four-bedroom dwelling in need of renovation. This latter is a potential jewel in the crown of the next owner — a well-located homestead in the middle of the farm, with some of the best views.

In terms of price, the agent would confidently be expecting something in the region of €1.5m for this holding (€13,800/acre).
