Residential farms in Cork are prized when they come to the market and it is expected there will be great interest in a 90ac residential farm on the outskirts of the north Cork village of Dromina. The house and yard are being brought to auction by GVM Kilmallock with a guide price of €6,000/ac.

The property is five miles from Charleville, on the Cork/Limerick border.

Richard Ryan of GVM says the farm has a mix of good quality land and heavier ground, with the heavier part more suited to summer grazing.

The holding is in one block and divided into a number of easily managed fields that are well fenced and watered.

There is substantial road frontage with the property and 4.75ac closest to the village is zoned for development.

The house is a two-storey traditional farmhouse in need of repair and refurbishment.

The accommodation includes three bedrooms, a living room, sitting room, kitchen and bathroom.

Meanwhile, the farmyard consists of a number of older sheds including a machinery shed, an old milking parlour and a range of other buildings.
