A 'Suir Tipp' for €3m
One of the largest residential farms to come on the market this year is for sale in one of the most saleable parts of the country, South Tipperary.
Glencastle House located at Glen Lower, Kilsheelan, Co Tipperary, stands on c.269ac.
The farm is in one block and incorporates c.31ac in forestry. The private treaty sale is being guided at €3m.
Approached from a sweeping tree-lined avenue through paddocks divided by post and rail fencing, Glencastle House is a period residence dating back to the early 17th century.
Surrounded by landscaped gardens and mature trees, the two-storey house overlooks the River Suir. The property is located within three miles of the village of Kilsheelan, five miles from Carrick-on-Suir and nine miles from Clonmel.
The residence consists of an entrance hall, drawing room, dining room, a kitchen-cum-dining area with fitted kitchen and solid fuel stove, four bedrooms, a fully fitted bathroom and oil fired central heating. The building is perfectly habitable at present but could do with some modernisation.
There is an extensive farmyard with a range of buildings that include a slatted unit with accommodation for 300 cattle, a holding area, a number of concrete yards, a hay-barn, and silage slab.
Approximately 238ac of the land is in tillage and pasture, with the remaining 31ac in forestry delivering a premium of €4,375 annually.
