Abbeyfeale, on the Limerick-Kerry border is home to a strong farming community. A 68ac residential farm on the N21 linking Limerick and the Kingdom is sure attract plenty of local interest and enquiries from across the border. The land is guided at €8,000/ac.
Located on the outskirts of the town at Kilconlea Lower, on the Killarney Road, the property has extensive road frontage with four access points on to the N21. To the rear it has extensive frontage on to the River Feale, renowned for its trout and salmon fishing.
The land is comprised of a number of adjoining portfolios that include a modern dormer residence on 36.6ac, and an older detached cottage on 31ac. It also has a small yard made up of a 60ft cubicle house, a variety of livestock sheds and cattle handling facilities. The farm is supplied with water from a private well and has mains electricity connections.
Laid out in about 18 fields fenced by traditional hedgerow, the property is described by auctioneer Paul Stack of Sherry FitzGerald Stack as a good grazing farm for sale in a range of attractive lots.
The main residence is a modern, four-bedroom dormer bungalow. This was guided at €280,000 on 1.5ac but has been ‘sale agreed’ with 5ac in recent weeks, and, according to the auctioneer, made in the region of the guide.
In a separate lot the yard can be bought on 1ac or with a further 2ac. According to Mr Stack this roadside property would be a valuable acquisition for a local farmer or for commercial interests given its accessibility.
A derelict cottage on an acre, accessed via its own lane from the main road, bounds the town park and is attracting plenty of attention. It can be sold with an additional 9ac. The cottage needs total refurbishment but could have development potential subject to planning permission.
A 65ac non-residential lock of land is guided at €8,000/ac. This has good road access and is laid out in 12 fields.
While the lots should attract a wide range of customers, the 65ac piece could form a solid base with potential to be built into a larger farm. It would also make for an ideal out-farm, given the access and facilities.
