A 96ac farm rising from the shores of Lough Gara with some quality farm buildings is on the market with a guide price of €800,000.
Mike Smith of Property Team Smith Kelly Scott, Boyle is handling the sale of this lovely property set back from the road with its own private entrance and plenty of lake frontage.
Located at Emlagh, Lisserlough, 8km from Boyle, the holding is made up of 70 acres of good grazing ground, while 20ac is of a poorer quality.
A further 20ac of summer grazing becomes available when the lake subsides in summer.
The farm is serviced by a farmyard that includes a double A-roofed slatted shed, cattle-handling facilities and a number of useful sheds laid out in a concrete yard.
The land is in great heart, having been well minded by the current owner. The location is very private and the avenue to the holding is for the exclusive use of the owner.
Auctioneer Mike Smith is expecting lively interest in the farm given its quality and location.
He says the holding will be sold as one lot. While there is no guarantee of planning permission for a residence on the property, there should be possibilities in this regard given the size of the holding and the presence of the farm buildings.
