Tipp top Marlhill property likely to attract lively auction interest
'Best of Tipperary land' to go under hammer in two divisions with guide of €9,000/ac
A top-quality South Tipperary farm bordering Rockwell College has come on the market and will be sold at auction at Clonmel on Wednesday, April 6.
Laid out in two divisions with substantial road frontage, the farm is divided by the M8 motorway.
According to John Stokes, of Stokes and Quirke, the property is suitable for any type of farming and comprises the best of land. The Clonmel-based selling agents are guiding the sale at €9,000/ac.
The farm is located at Marlhill, one mile from New Inn village, on the road to Golden, and is about 13km from Bansha, 11.5km from Cashel and 14km from Fethard.
The place was originally a stud farm renowned for adjusting and pre-training horses, and is home to a stable yard with several equestrian facilities.
The property is to be sold in three lots. Lot one comprises 61ac, lot two is made up of 40ac, which includes a derelict residence and a substantial stable yard, and lot three is the entire.
The 61ac section shares a substantial boundary with the famed Rockwell College and is made up of top-quality, free-draining, limestone-based ground. The lot is all in one block with mature hedgerows and numerous specimen trees throughout. It is serviced by mains water and has extensive road frontage onto a country road.
"The 61ac is the best of South Tipp land," said Mr Stokes,
