Elevated farmhouse offers good value

Some of the highest prices for land paid this year were paid for ground in South Tipperary. In this regard, an elevated 50ac, residential farm at Turraheen, Rossmore, Cashel will be viewed as good value at a guide price of €300,000 or €6,000/ac.
Alison De Vere Hunt of Cashel Marts describes the farm as a lovely elevated piece of ground. Located 5km from Clonoulty, 22km from Cashel and 22km from Thurles, the place has fine views over Cashel, Thurles and the Golden Vale.
The residence is a traditional two-storey farmhouse that hasn't been lived in for a number of years and is in need of refurbishment and modernisation. The accommodation includes a kitchen, sitting room, dining room and utility room while on the first floor is found the sleeping accommodation extending to four bedrooms. The property is serviced by oil-fired central heating, electricity and has its own water supply from a private well.
The farmyard is of the traditional type with farm buildings consisting of a two-span haybarn, cattle shed, cattle crush and a range of other out buildings. The yard, like the house, will take work to bring it to the required modern standards.
According to Ms De Vere Hunt, most of the land is good but some of it will need drainage and tidying. It comes with plenty of road frontage as the farm is bisected by a local road, leaving 18ac on one side, while the house, yard and 32ac are on the other. The land is in one block and laid out in about 10 fields that are fenced with traditional hedgerows that include many mature trees.
The property, even though it needs some work, has the makings of a nice part-time holding or a substantial addition to an existing farm.
