Interest is already strong in a unique 93-acre residential coastal holding at Oughmina near Goleen, at the southern tip of Ireland.
The land is south-facing and offers uninterrupted views of the Atlantic and Dunlough Bay, just a 2-minute drive away, which made headlines in July 2007 as the scene of Ireland’s largest drugs seizure, when 1.5 tonnes of cocaine with a street value of over €400 million was found in floating bales.
Aside from that dramatic aberration, it’s a peaceful spot that is becoming ever more popular with hill walkers and tourists who come for the scenic walks to Three Castle Head, and the many jagged inlets along this part of the Wild Atlantic Way.
The quality of the lands is described by selling agent John Hodnett of Clonakilty-based Hodnett-Forde as good grazing land.
“It’s used solely as a grazing farm for sheep and cattle,” says John, who says that the land quality is very good for an area that many might more readily associated with rocks.
The area is known for early grass growth.
The holding is sub-divided by a public roadway to Dunlough Pier.
“The land has been leased for a number of years,” says the agent.
“There is top-quality fencing here, and the land is laid out in a number of medium-sized fields.”
The neighbouring lands are used for dry-stock and sheep farming and the rugged sea-frontage is as dramatic and beautiful as it is substantial.
The residence on the property is tucked away from view of the public road, but has the best of sea views.
It is described by the agents as in “immaculate condition” throughout.
Accommodation consists of an entrance porch, living room, dining room, kitchen and bathroom on the ground floor, with three bedrooms upstairs.
The house is complimented by a 1,000-square-foot high-quality ancillary building to the side.
The price guide is €500,000-550,000.
