Suir to be a farmhouse in demand

A remarkable property that includes a period farmhouse dating from the 1640s and 276 acres of the finest south Tipperary land is to be sold at public auction at the end of March.
The farm includes 1.5 miles of riverbank on the Suir with renowned fishing rights and 30 acres of undeveloped sand and gravel deposits. A guide price of €3.35m is being quoted and, according to John Shelley of joint selling agents Shelley and Purcell, the property is attracting a lot of interest.
Glencastle House and farm is located three miles from the lovely village of Kilsheelan, nine miles from Clonmel and five miles from Carrick on Suir.
The five-bedroom residence is described by John Shelley as a period farmhouse, not to be confused with a period house.
The house is in excellent condition having been renovated eight years ago and includes five bedrooms, a fully fitted kitchen, a bathroom, and two spacious reception rooms. Refurbishment of two of the bedrooms needs to be finished.
The main approach to the farm is by means of a tarmac avenue with post and rail fencing, while the property can also be accessed from a public road field entrance and from a surfaced right of way entrance.
