100-acre residential farm has extras to justify its price tag
A large farm in the Golden Vale zone is always going to cause a stir in the market.
In the case of a 100- acre residential farm listed with Newcastle West-based Liston Auctioneers, the package on offer should cause quite a stir. Located at Ballyvoughan, it has about 60 acres of pasture, 40 acres of forestry, and a very high quality dwelling with over 3,500 square feet.
Newc ast le Wes t an d the N21 are just 10 minutes away. The holding has an internal roadway for access to paddocks.
O u t b u i l d i n g s w e r e c on - structed in recent years and are in very good condition, says selling agent Michael Liston. They include a slatted unit (80 x 63ft), a silage pit, two machinery sheds (63ft x 30ft and 42ft x 21ft), workshop (40ft x 45ft), calving pens (22ft x 50ft) and stables (60ft x 15ft).
“It presents a rare opportunity to acquire a large holding w i t h m o d e r n a nd e n v i r o n - mentally- friendly farm buildings,” the agents point out. The house is another huge asset in the package. It’s an architecturally-designed home which features quality décor and fittings throughout, full of impressive quality finish, from the large granite counter-top kitchen to the feature stone fireplace in the living room and the high- end hotel standard bathrooms.
The land is in two parts. The forestry land is just six years old, earning annual premiums in the region of €7,000. The pasture land is in very good condition, according to the agents, who describe it as “free draining grassland”. It comes with its own income in the form of annual entitlements.
Further details are available on request from the agents. “Over all, it ’ s an unusu al package,” says Michael, who emphasises the rarity of such a commodity and one which will be a dream come true for the right client.
It is the kind of property that could be subdivided into its three natural components, but the agent says there are no plans to do this yet, and its layout may not be conducive to subdivision. “That said, we have had an enquiry from a client last week looking for just the house and its curtilage, and another client was looking at the land and outbuildings.” The price guide is €890,000. It seems a very good price for the right client.
