66ac of 'powerful' ground hits the market in east Cork
There isn’t an inch of waste in this 66ac east Cork farm which comes with a substantial residence and outbuildings
I got to see a residential farm at Ballyclough, Kilworth in Co Cork just before the weather broke last week.
The property includes 66ac of fine elevated land, a five-bedroom traditional farmhouse, a traditional yard and a two-bedroom lodge.
The place is for sale by private treaty with a guide price of €900,000 or €12,000/ac for the land.
It was a lovely spring day as I made my way through the level country of east Limerick until I passed through Ballylanders and the Galtees came into view. The ring road took me around Mitchelstown and back on to the old Cork road.
A right-hand turn at the Gloccamorra Inn and another 4km brings me to the farm located about 10km from Fermoy and Mitchelstown.
A short, tree-lined avenue leads straight to the house, a substantial two-storey residence with a two-storey extension to the rear.
The accommodation includes five bedrooms, one of which is located downstairs with an ensuite.
The ground-floor accommodation includes a fine country kitchen, a shower room and WC, a sun porch and a series of reception rooms with open fireplaces all with great character.
