In one of the first land sales of the year down south, Michael O'Donovan of Sherry FitzGerald O'Donovan, along with Property Partners O'Keeffe are jointly handling the sale of a fine 84ac farm near Mallow.
The non-residential holding is for sale by private treaty with a guide price of €900,000.
Located about 1.6km from the village of Dromahane and less than 3km from Mallow the property is located in top class farming country.
It would be ideal as an out-farm to a bigger dairy concern or as a fodder farm or as a location for rearing replacements.
Laid out in three large fields and a smaller paddock the land is in one block with 120m of road frontage.
All in grass it has been reseeded completely is well fenced with traditional hedgerow and serviced by a hardcore internal roadway. There is a fine well equipped yard on concrete at the centre of the holding with a haybarn, a silage pit and a four-column slatted unit with accommodation for up to 80 animals.
Michael O'Donovan says there is keen interest in the property, not only from locals but from prospective buyers across the border in the Kingdom, from the neighbouring county of Tipperary and further afield.
With the anticipated improvement in the dairy sector it is to be expected that this 84ac holding will a good barometer for 2017 land prices in this region.
