A substantial, well-equipped drystock or dairying farm has come on the market at Knockardfree, Liscarroll, in north Cork. The 130ac residential holding has been completely reseeded in recent years and comes with a wide range of modern sheds with accommodation for up to 250 cattle and €5,000 in entitlements.
Along with a residence in need of refurbishment the property has a second yard with a derelict stone residence and sheds. The holding is for sale by private treaty and is guided by joint agents Killian Lynch and Dick Pomeroy at €1.2m or around €9,000/ac.
Located 10km from Kanturk the farm is 8km from Liscarroll village, 20 minutes from Mallow and 35 minutes from Cork city.
The land is in great heart having been totally reseeded over the last four years and fenced with top of the range fencing. There is water to all parts of the holding and a roadway through most of it however, there is no road frontage and access is by means of an avenue.
The farm buildings are first class, new constructions that include three slatted sheds one of which is a 48-unit cubicle house. The sheds are fitted with electric scrapers and further slurry storage is provided by a slatted tank. A feed silo stands to the side of the slatted units while an 80ft by 60ft concrete silage slab provides ample space for silage storage.
There are two traditional stone out-houses in the yard with the remains of a milking parlour in one.
The farmhouse is a two storey traditional dwelling in need of refurbishment.
Extending to 950sqft the accommodation includes four bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs while downstairs there is a kitchen, living room and bathroom.
Another yard away from the main house contains a derelict stone farmhouse and shed with a haybarn.
Macroom auctioneer Killian Lynch says this is a stand-alone farm that could be used for dairying or drystock.
"It represents great value," he said. "The sheds alone are worth about €200,000 and the land is top class."
