Not many substantial residential farms are finding their way on to the market of late, so a 99ac farm with a two-storey residence and extensive farmyard buildings near Nenagh, Co Tipperary is sure to attract a lot of interest.

The property will be sold at public auction with a guide of €8,000 to €10,000/ac.

The farm is located at Carrigpeacock, Norwood, about 7km from Nenagh on the Thurles road.

The lands, which are all in one block, are, in the main, comprised of top quality ground that was under tillage at one time but is now in grass.

According to William Talbot of selling agents Sherry Fitzgerald Talbot, a small portion of the farm is of poorer quality but, overall, the property is in good heart having been farmed with care over the years.

The land is suitable to any farm enterprise and could offer development potential, given the extensive road frontage on to the main road linking Nenagh and Thurles.

The residence is a five-bedroom, two-storey modern farmhouse with an adjacent garage. The accommodation on the ground floor includes an entrance hall, sitting room, kitchen/dining room, utility room and en-suite bedroom.

Upstairs are four bedrooms and a bathroom. While the décor might need to be altered to suit the taste of the purchaser, the house is in fine condition and perfectly habitable.

The yard is an extensive modern farmyard with a range of fine sheds and cattle handling facilities.

These include two three-bay machinery sheds, a four-bay hayshed and another four-bay shed housing slatted units. The cattle handling facilities comprise holding yards and a cattle crush.

The property will be offered in two lots, which are divided by the main Thurles road. Lot one consists of 15ac of grazing ground and lot two the house and yards on 84ac.

According to Mr Talbot there is great interest in the farm, with some clients anxious to buy prior to auction. However, he believes the vendors will wait to sell on the auction floor.

The auction will take place at the Sherry Fitzgerald Talbot premises at Kenyon St, Nenagh at 3pm on Friday, March 22.


Mr Talbot is also handling the sale by public auction of a 74ac farm with a derelict cottage and outbuildings at Ballinalick, Norwood, some 9km from Nenagh. The property comes with a guide price of €10,000/ac.

The land is described by Mr Talbot as the best of limestone ground, all in grass with 6.4km of road frontage.

It will be sold in two lots which are divided by a private roadway leading to the cottage.

Lot one consists of 20ac, while lot 2 consists of 54ac, along with the cottages and outbuildings.

The property will be sold at auction at 3pm on Friday, March 15 at the offices of Sherry Fitzgerald Talbot, Kenyon St. Nenagh.
