Property: Carlow farm almost makes the million
A 77ac farm at Knocklonagad, Garryhill, Fenagh in Co Carlow sold in its entirety under the hammer last week for €985,000, exceeding its guide by €185,000.
Located 30 minutes south of Carlow and 15 minutes from the M9 intersection at Junction 5 the farm was bought by the current owners in 1998 and has been carefully refurbished inside and out leaving a genuine walk-in property .
The house is a three-storey construction. Originally in two storeys the current owners raised the roof to create the third floor. The four-bedroom house is in top class condition.
The farmyard has a great array of buildings where all the old granite outhouses have been maintained and developed along with some fine modern structures. Other facilities include a stud-railed, enclosed sand arena close to the yard.
The lands are made up of dry fertile ground in a mix of tillage and grass with 40ac in corn and the rest in a mix of reseeded ground and a small piece of old pasture.
The farm is fenced with a mix of original hedgerow and stock-proof fencing suitable for sheep.
With decent road frontage on to the main Garryhill to Borris Road and on to a secondary road there are 65ac around the house and a 12ac parcel across the road from the main entrance. Both parcels have river frontage on to the Corries River.
