What a gem with loads of character

A 65ac residential farm with lots of character located at Adare, Co Limerick, is sure to attract much attention. Property in or near the picturesque village is much sought after and this farm, with its farmhouse and lands, is sure to draw a variety of customers.

The property is being sold by public auction and has a guide price of €8,000/ac.

Tom Crosse, of selling agents GVM, Limerick, describes the ground as good farmland, well laid out, well fenced, with a private water supply and a tributary of the river Maigue running through it.

The land comes with a single farm payment of €3,000 per annum. The property is adjacent to the proposed bypass of Adare and in the event of the development getting the go-ahead, the farm will lose about two acres -- a move that may attract some recompense.

The residence is a lovely single storey farmhouse with oodles of character. It is covered in ivy and situated in a traditional farmyard.

The accommodation includes three bedrooms, a hallway, sitting room, kitchen and bathroom. It is perfectly habitable but could do with some modernisation.

The neat farmyard consists of a three-column haybarn, a garage, a machinery shed and some calf sheds.

According to Mr Crosse, the location of the holding and its traditional character make it a very attractive property.

"Its location, two miles from the village of Adare and about 12 miles from Limerick city, is a huge advantage.

"The holding has a unique charm about it and, already, there is a great deal of interest."

Tom expects a wide range of prospective customers for the property including local farmers, younger people looking to get into farming with this moderate sized farm or somebody in search of a decent rural holding with potential.

The farm will be auctioned at the Woodlands House Hotel, Adare at 3pm on Friday, August 5. The vendor is retiring from farming.
