A 72ac farm with a period house at Cloneen near Fethard is the kind of south Tipperary property that attracts customers from all across the farming sectors.

Guided at €1m it is coming to auction as an entire or in lots.

Set in the shadow of Slievenamon, the place has oodles of character and charm and, while it could do with some work, it is completely habitable.

It is accessed from the main road by a long tree-lined avenue and, according to auctioneer Padraic Murtagh of James L Murtagh, Mullingar, the house is a mixture of the old and the relatively modern.

Behind the house is a traditional and basic yard. It includes a hayshed with lean-to in good repair, cattle-handling facilities and some old stone buildings in need of complete refurbishment.

The lands have been extensively farmed with a light organic touch over the years. Mostly in old permanent pasture, there is 10ac of natural copse of sparsely planted woodland with some large native oaks.

The fields are bounded by mature whitethorn hedging, while a stream of spring water flowing through the lands provides a natural water supply.

According to Mr Murtagh the ground could be grazed for drystock or farming, or could be tilled.

Given its location, not far from some of the famous stud farms of South Tipperary, the property would undoubtedly have equestrian potential.

The auctioneer believes Cappa House and farm would suit a commercial farmer who might want to undertake a programme of reseeding and infrastructural work.

It could equally suit a new owner with a more organic approach.

The property is situated on a secondary road 10km from Fethard, 22km from the M8 and 34km from Thurles.
