See one of the biggest farms on the market that can be yours for €2.5m
One of the biggest farms on the market at the moment is located amid fine farmland in north Cork.
The 298ac residential holding is located a short distance from the village of Shanballymore, between Mallow and Mitchelstown. The property is for sale by private treaty with a guide price of €2.5m.
Situated on the northern bank of the Awbeg River, Graigue Farm is divided by the N73 linking the towns of Mitchelstown and Mallow. Both towns are about 4.5km away with Cork about 34km distant.
The lands are described by Michael O'Donovan of Sherry FitzGerald O'Donovan as premier quality ground set out in two blocks and serviced by good internal roadways.
Currently in a mix of tillage and grazing, both blocks are suitable for a range of farm enterprises including dairying, mixed beef, tillage or bloodstock. The first block extending to 193ac is located at Graigue and Waterdyke and includes the house and yards.
This portion is made up of some 150ac in tillage with 40ac in grass and 3ac around the house and yards.
Laid out in 10 well-sized divisions with extensive road frontage, this block is accessed by two entrances, one leading to the rear and the farmyard with the other leading to the house.
Graigue House is a 19th century Georgian residence extending to 5,000 sq ft house and surrounded by mature gardens.
