Farms with even a hint of dairy potential continue to attract lively custom.

An 88ac farm with dairy and tillage possibilities at Coolatrindle, Kilmuckridge, Co Wexford could trigger a head-to-head contest between the plough and the cow.

The property is guided pre-auction by Savills at €950,000.

Located 4km from Kilmuckridge, it is 17km from Gorey and 26km from Enniscorthy.

The holding includes a traditional three-bedroom bungalow and an extensive range of good but dated farm buildings.

The 1,291 sq ft house has been unoccupied in recent years. In need of renovation and refurbishment, it has a kitchen/dining/living area, a bathroom, a utility and a smaller room that could be used as an office or another bedroom.

The garden is made up of a lawned area sheltered by mature trees on the south and west, with the remaining two sides enclosed by a timber fence. There is a garage next to the house.

Set on a large concrete apron, the range of buildings in the yard is extensive. With two entrance points off the public road, one of which also leads to the house, the buildings are designed and built for a dairy enterprise.

The former dairy complex is in a five-column, steel-frame Dutch barn with Yorkshire boarding and concrete walls. It includes a slatted collecting area, the parlour, a bull pen, a dairy and a loft.

Two further five-column Dutch barns with lean-tos have corrugated roofs, corrugated cladding and concrete walls. These cubicle houses have a central feed passage and a slatted base with seven adjoining calving pens.

Other buildings include a covered silage pit with lean-tos at each side, a part-enclosed seven-column haybarn with lean-to and a second covered silage pit with lean-to.

Separate from the main building is a four-bay A-roofed slatted shed with a central feed passage.

According to James Butler of Savills, the land is “the best of ground suitable for dairying, drystock or tillage”.
