A 91ac residential farm near Bandon, Co Cork, was withdrawn from auction last Friday.
An offer of €825,000 failed to secure the purchase of the property.
The farm at Knocknagurrane, Bandon, is located three miles from the town of Bandon, just off the Timoleague road.
Known as Haghill House, the holding is in permanent pasture, with 17ac fully reseeded in the recent past.
John Hodnett, of local auctioneers Hodnett and Forde Property Services, says the lands are situated on a gentle slope and in "great order".
The house is a four bedroom traditional farmhouse in need of complete refurbishment.
The farmyard has extensive outbuildings that include a cubicle house for 90 cattle, as well as both open and covered silage pits.
The covered pit is now converted to an easy-feed system. The yard has ample slurry storage capacity. The farmyard also includes a selection of stone outbuildings in poor condition.
