Premier chance to make most of excellent quality

A prime north Tipperary residential tillage and grassland farm extending to 92ac at Kilfadda, Terryglass, is on the market and for sale by private treaty.

Located five miles from Borrisokane and Terryglass, this Premier County farm can be sold in two lots or as an entire.

One lot comprises 84ac with an extensive farmyard and derelict residence, while a second lot includes a modern, three-bedroom bungalow with a garage on 8ac separated by a public road from the farmyard and main bulk of the land.

Borrisokane auctioneer Noel Brennan is guiding the property at €950,000, or around €10,000/ac.

Of the 84ac lot, 62ac are in tillage under a crop that will not be harvested until the autumn, while 14ac are in pasture with 8ac in set-aside.

The property is well fenced, watered and enjoys 300m of road frontage.

The land is described by Mr Brennan as exceptional ground suitable for tillage and grass.

"It has been let to the same tenant, an agricultural contractor, for the last seven to eight years and he has looked after it extremely well," he said.

The extensive farmyard consists of a slatted unit with accommodation for 80-100 cattle, a cattle crush, silage slab and a derelict farmhouse.

Services include electricity and water.

The bungalow residence is a modern home situated on an elevated site with fine views of the countryside. It is fully furnished, in the best of condition and is currently lived in by the owner.

The house comes with 8ac of good land with substantial road frontage.

Mr Brennan said the property offered a great opportunity to a range of potential customers, including farmers wishing to start or relocate to a ready-made enterprise, growers in search of a substantial outfarm or customers looking for a house and a few acres located in a good farming area.
