Coastal farm will sea lots of interest
Cloyne in east Cork is renowned as the home of hurling legend Christy Ring. The locality is also home to some of the best tillage and dairy land in the country.
An executor sale of a 140ac seaside farm in two lots, located three miles from Cloyne village and six miles from Midleton, will draw strong interest from near and far when it is put to auction at the end of February.
The property comes with an overall guide price of €1.4m or €10,000/ac
The two lots include an 87ac residential holding at Ballycroneen Upper, while the second lot, a 53ac parcel with no buildings or services, is located 180m away at Ballywilliam, Churchtown South.
Both parcels have magnificent sea views, while the 87ac portion has direct access to Ballybrannigan Beach and substantial road frontage.
The farm is described by Midleton auctioneer Adrianna Hegarty, of Hegarty Properties, as prime land in a good farming area.
"It is rare for coastal land in this area to come on the market, it is generally passed on from one generation to the next. In this case the late Mr John McCarthy had no living relatives in Ireland so the land is for sale.
