Gallery: Compact stud farm guided at €500,000
Late last week I found myself in horsey country in Bruff, Co Limerick. I was there to visit Ballyvoan stud, a neat stud farm located just a short distance from the town.
The compact 20ac residential holding is within easy walking distance of shops, pubs and the local post office.
Comprising a spacious bungalow, 20ac of land in one block and stables, it is for sale by private treaty with a guide price of €500,000.
The property is bounded on the road by a neat stone wall with a separate entrance for the yard and lands.
The paddocks and the lawn area are fenced with neat stud rail fences. The owner tells me the holding was purpose built as a small stud farm and it shows.
The yard is immediately behind the house and consists of 6 loose boxes in pristine condition where the floors are covered with rubber mats and the walls are lined with the same material.
The owner explains that the previous resident pumped the walls of the stable block for insulation. At the end of the courtyard is a range of ancillary facilities that include a double garage currently used as a workshop.
Next to this is a tack room, spotlessly clean and heated, along with a small staff area with kitchenette facilities and a boiler room. The ancillary facilities are akin to indoor domestic facilities in terms of their finish and comfort.
