Modern bungalow on 34 acres at Killooley, Blueball, Co Offaly

A neat and compact residential 34ac farm with a modern yard at Killooley, Blueball, in Co. Offaly is sure to attract much attention in the midlands when it comes to auction at the end of the month.

The property is guided at €650,000 by Ganly Walters.

Located 5.5 km from Kilcormac and 15km from Tullamore, the farm is a working beef enterprise. Approached by a well-maintained avenue, the house sits on a rise overlooking the surrounding countryside of rolling grassland.

The residence is a modern bungalow extending to 1,345 sq ft with three bedrooms, of which one is ensuite. Other accommodation includes a sitting room, an open plan kitchen/dining room and a utility room. To the rear is a hard-core yard with a spacious double garage while the house is surrounded by mature gardens.

The lands comprise excellent quality grassland in five large divisions that are well watered, well sheltered and well fenced by neat and trimmed hedgerows.

An internal bitumen farm roadway running through the centre of the farm leads to the farm yard, which is situated away from the house, and on to the N52. A parcel of 1.97ac of the land is in forestry.

The yard consists of a range of buildings and cattle handling facilities. These include two three-span sheds, one of which is flanked by three-span lean tos, along with a four-bay shed (60x32ft) with three-bay slatted units. All sheds have hard-core flooring, water and electricity.

The original cottage residence on the farm is situated adjacent to the farmyard and it could be renovated for residential use subject to the necessary planning permission.

According to Celia Lamb of Ganly Walters, this is a lovely small farm in pristine condition. It is ideal as an extension to an existing enterprise or as a stand-alone, part-time farm.

The property will be sold by public auction on Tuesday September 30 at 3pm at the Ganly Walters Offices, 8-34 Percy Place, Dublin 4.
