Substantial residential holdings in west Cork can be hard to come by, so interest is expected in a 100ac farm on a coastal setting south of Skibbereen and east of Baltimore. The property, which comes with €2,000 in entitlements, is for sale by private treaty and guided by Hodnett Forde Auctioneers at €500,000 or €5,000/ac

Located to the west of Lough Hyne and east of Baltimore, the house is a traditional stone-built farmhouse in good condition with many modern conveniences including central heating. The accommodation has four bedrooms, two bathrooms, two reception rooms and a kitchen, while an unoccupied old farm dwelling may have some tourism development potential in the future.

According to John Hodnett the lands include approximately 50ac of top quality pasture land while the remaining lands would be classified as "good grazing ground." The holding, set in one division, is well fenced and has decent road frontage on its eastern boundary. Mr Hodnett describes the place as a "good, low lying, early grazing farm."

The yard has a range of useful buildings including a covered silage pit, a shed incorporating cubicles and loose cattle housing, some storage sheds and adequate slurry storage.

Set in a picturesque part of the country, this working farm is surrounded by some lovely scenery with coastal, sea and country views over Baltimore and Roaringwater Bay.

"This is a nice parcel of ground," said John Hodnett. "It ticks all the boxes with a good house, good cattle accommodation and good land."
