Strong interest has been reported in a 55ac residential farm located just off the Cork to Macroom road.
Located at Ballymichael, Lissarda, it is less than 2km from Kilmurry village and the N22 road. From there you could be in the heart of Cork city within half an hour. Heading west, Macroom is 10km away.
The lands are laid out in one block and are divided into a number of fields of various sizes by trees and hedgerows.
Currently in grass, the property has been let for a number of years.
With a stronger environmental aspect to the upcoming CAP, the farm is in a good position. There is a good mix of excellent grazing ground, along with areas rich in biodiversity.
Parts of it could require drainage work to bring it into full agricultural production or, alternatively, it could be left and be used as an easy way to access environmental payments.
The residence is a traditional two-storey farmhouse set in an area surrounded by mature trees. The interior of the building requires some renovation.
The land is very accessible and is likely to appeal as an outside block of grazing
There are a number of outbuildings dotted around the area near the house. These include a storage shed and a number of older stone outhouses.
The land is very accessible and is likely to appeal as an outside block of grazing.
It is available for sale as a whole or in a choice of two lots. Lot A consists of 23.5ac, the residence and outbuildings. Lot B contains the balance of 31.5ac. The property is guided at €750,000, or just over €13,500/ac.
According to sale agent John Hodnett of Hodnett Forde Property Services, Clonakilty, there has been strong interest displayed in this holding to date, with interested parties from both the agricultural and private spheres.
Demand for property in the west and mid-Cork area has been strong throughout last year
It’s easy to see how it would appeal to both.
Demand for property in the west and mid-Cork area has been strong throughout last year and according to the west Cork auctioneer that pattern has held up entering the new year.
Farm at Ballineen
Another residential farm on their books has seen strong enquires. That 74ac farm near Ballineen that came to the market in late 2021 is available in three lots and is currently under offer also.
