Top-class 154ac property

A substantial grassland farm of 154ac has come on the market in Co Waterford.

Located in the west of the county at Stradbally, on either side of the Dungarvan to Waterford coast road, the property comes with plenty of road frontage and entitlements of €238/ac.

It is to be sold by private treaty and selling agent Pat Harty is guiding it at €1-1.25m.

Situated 10 miles from Dungarvan and 20 miles from Waterford, this prime holding is currently in permanent pasture and is renowned for producing top-quality beef cattle.

Laid out in big fields, it is well fenced and looked after, with a river providing a natural boundary along its eastern side.

Mr Harty is offering the property in three lots and the entire. Lot one, located in the townland of Graiguenageeha, extends to 58.3ac and includes a double four-span round shed, a yard and cattle handling facilities.

Lot two is 54.2ac and is located in the townland of Rathnaskillogue. This section has road frontage along the coast road and is serviced by an internal roadway running along the western boundary and has a river providing a natural water supply along the eastern side.

Also located in the townland of Rathnaskillogue is lot three, which extends to 42ac. This is a sheltered block of land, separate from the remainder with its own private access. Like the rest of the farm, it is in permanent pasture and has a natural water supply.

The property is also for sale as one unit in its entirety.

Mr Harty said the sale is an opportunity to acquire land in a progressive farming area.

"Stradbally is a renowned dairy and suckler area," said Mr Harty. "This farm will be attractive to new entrants into farming in this area or to some of the local farmers who want to expand."

Given the extensive road frontage and the proximity to the southern coast and its beaches, Mr Harty expects interest from non-farming and farming clients.
