An extensive residential North Kerry farm with excellent views of the Shannon Estuary has just come on the market and will be sold by private treaty.

Extending to 107ac, the farm is a mixture of tillage and grassland and comes with a lovely five-bedroom bungalow in excellent condition. While no guide price has been given for the sale, recent trends in the sale of good land in the area have seen similar properties make up to €15,000/ac.

The property is located at Knoppogue North, not far from the village of Ballyduff and the seaside town of Ballybunion. Listowel-based auctioneer John O'Keeffe is handling the sale and is fulsome in his praise of the property. He describes it as consisting of the best of elevated ground capable of producing grass or crops.

"At present there are about 25ac in potatoes with 50ac in stubble while the rest, approximately 30ac, is in grass," he said. There are about 10ac that are not quite as good as the rest.

Located near the mouth of the Shannon Estuary, the property enjoys panoramic views of the sea and overlooks the famous links golf course at Ballybunion.

The farm goes right to the coast and enjoys some excellent road frontage.

The farmyard comprises a series of sheds that house 100 cubicles and a slatted unit along with a range of storage and machinery sheds. As the farm was originally developed as a dairy enterprise, there is an old milking parlour situated in the yard.

The residence was built about 25 years ago and is in very good condition.
