A lovely 87ac grassland farm with an attractive traditional farmhouse at Borris-in-Ossory in Co Laois is on the market by private treaty with a guide price of €1m or €11,500/ac.

The holding, located at Clononeen, one mile from Borris-in-Ossory and not far from Roscrea, is set on good level ground with the Slieve Bloom Mountains forming a picturesque background.

Approached by a tree-lined avenue, the substantial, traditional, two-storey farmhouse is in good condition. The accommodation includes four bedrooms, a bathroom, two reception rooms, a kitchen, utility and a porch. Services include water electricity and oil-fired central heating, while adjacent to the house is a garage along with fuel and storage sheds.

The yard is of a traditional type where a range of useful but dated buildings include a cubicle shed, a four-span single slatted shed, a covered silage pit, a dungstead and a machinery shed. There are also a number of cut-stone farm buildings in the yard.

The land has been let for two years and is well maintained and in good heart. All in grass at present it comes with generous road frontage and is fenced with a combination of traditional hedgerows and electric fencing.

According to selling agent, David O'Connell of Cullohill, the house and lands, which are all in one block, will be sold as an entire. The place is an ideal stand alone farm or the strong nucleus of an enterprise that could be expanded in the future.
