Period classic is guided at €1.85m

A guide price of €1.85m is being quoted for the 147ac Gurteen Farm (pictured above) which has recently been put on the market.

The holding comes with a period farmhouse and a modern farmyard and is situated in south Tipperary, two miles from Mullinahone, over seven miles from Fethard, eight miles from Callan, Co Kilkenny and 14 miles from Clonmel.

The residence is an attractive, five-bedroom period farmhouse dating to the mid-17th century. It extends to 3,122sqft and includes a reception room, dining room, living room, bathroom, kitchen, utility room and sun room.

The house is very well decorated and includes walnut floors, marble fireplaces, a fully fitted kitchen, one ensuite bedroom and an attic space.

French windows lead into a well-maintained garden that boasts an orchard and hen-house.

According to Kerstin Fenelon, of estate agents Savills, the farm is a quality piece of property with easily managed divisions that have good shelter, are well hedged and serviced by piped water and an internal roadway.

It is currently farmed as a mixed drystock and tillage holding, but the layout, that includes an internal roadway and the possibility of paddocking the fields, means it could easily be converted to a dairy enterprise.


A gravelled roadway leads from the public road to the farmhouse, while a separate entrance leads to the farm.

The modern farmyard comprises a five-bay slatted beef unit, a haybarn with silage clamp walls and a small twin lean-to. An adjacent cattle handling yard has a race and crush.

A traditional courtyard is located behind the house. This includes a range of single and lofted stone outbuildings, including a workshop, fuel store and boiler house.

The farm is described by Pat O'Hagan of Savills as a working residential farm. The guide price equates to €12,500/ac.
