Tipp top farmhouse on 164ac holding expected to fetch €1.4m
One of the nicest residential working farms to come on the market in recent times is a 164ac holding at Gortnagoona, Roscrea, Co Tipperary.
The holding comprises 111ac of grazing ground and 53ac of forestry, with entitlements that include a single farm payment of €23,400 and nine years of forestry payments at €9,800 per annum.
The farm is on the market by private treaty and Matt Malone of selling agents Central Auctions is guiding the sale price at €1.4m or €8,500/ac.
Located five miles from Roscrea and five miles from Templemore, the holding is described by Mr Malone as a quality grazing farm with well managed forestry.
The house is a fine two-storey farmhouse in top condition, with five bedrooms and a coach-house/garage attached.
The property is approached by an impressive stone gateway and a tree-lined avenue. The avenue divides as you approach the house and leads separately to the residence and to the farmyard.
The yard is a mix of the old and the modern located at either side of the house. One of the yards is of the more traditional kind with a round roof shed that has a lean-to on one side and a more recent open fronted cattle shed on the other.
The remaining buildings in the traditional yard are older stone sheds.
