The executor sale of a 40ac residential farm at Farnamangh near Cashel, Co Tipperary, will be one to watch as land in this part of the country comes with centuries of recommendation. The farm, which will be offered in lots, comes with a guide price of €8,500-10,000/ac.
Located 3.5km from Cashel, the farm is described by Tipperary auctioneer Matt Ryan as top-quality limestone ground, attested to by the presence of a small limestone quarry on the property.
"It is elevated land, ideal for drystock, dairy or bloodstock. It is currently let to the nephew of the deceased who has drystock on the farm," said Mr Ryan.
The land has good frontage on to the Tipperary to Cashel road. The house is a traditional three-bedroom bungalow, with a kitchen, sitting room and bathroom. Built in the 1940s or 1950s, the mass-concrete residence could do with substantial refurbishment.
The property comes with a working farmyard comprising two haybarns, a double-span slatted unit with accommodation for 100 cattle and a six-unit milking parlour that has been unused for a number of years.
The farm will be offered in three lots with the first lot comprising the residence and the farmyard on 29.45ac that is laid out in three fields. Lot two is a 10.94ac field with site potential, while lot three comprises the entire property.
The holding will be offered to auction at the Cashel Palace Hotel at 3pm on Thursday, March 1.
