The prospect of a 173ac residential dairy farm between Mallow and Cork is enough to raise eyebrows in the market -- but throw in a 64,000ga milk quota and €28,000 in single farm payment entitlements and you are sure to have its full attention.

A plethora of attractions are part of the package that makes up Clashmorgan Farm at Mourneabbey, four miles from Mallow and just off the main Cork road.

This residential working farm comes with a two-storey, three-bedroom traditional farmhouse in fine condition.

The farmyard includes an eight-unit milking parlour and a range of sheds, with a haybarn and lean-to cubicle accommodation and some general-purpose calf houses. There is also an old stone barn with a loft.

The house and farm are serviced by an avenue that divides to give separate entrances to the house and the yard.

The land is laid out in well-fenced paddocks, serviced by a hardcore roadway. The holding is all in grass and is, in the main, in good heart except for 25ac of upland.

According to selling agent Christy Buckley, this is a fine working dairy farm being sold as a going concern.

"We are selling this by private treaty and, at the moment, we have an offer of €1.75m on it," he said. "It can be sold in two lots, with lot one comprising the house, the yard and 55ac, while lot two will include the remaining 118ac."

Mr Buckley believes the property would be of interest to a range of customers.

"The entire is ideal for anyone who wants to get into dairying, while the 118ac would make a substantial addition to an existing holding," Mr Buckley said. "The house and 55ac is also an attractive proposition as a part-time or hobby-farming operation."

The holding is a working unit so all enquiries and viewing must be made through the auctioneer, Mr Buckley, based in Ballinhassig, Co Cork.
