62ac residential farm for sale ‘together with extensive grazing rights added on’

“It’s not often that a top-class residential farm comes on the market in the renowned farming area of Ardfert and, when it happens, much speculation, interest and discussion invariably follows.”

This is the statement from McQuinn Consulting on the “just released onto the market” residential farm comprising circa 62ac (25.1ha), together with extensive grazing rights added on.

Located on the coast road from Banna to Ardfert, the holding sits in the townland of Carrahane. The address is Carrahane, Ardfert, Co. Kerry.

Commenting on the history, the agents said in a statement: “Many people will know that it is along this very road, Roger Casement and his comrades would have walked on their way to McKenna’s fort in Easter 1916, having come ashore right beside the farm in question.”

Widest range of agricultural enterprises

The land quality on this farm is excellent and is suitable for the widest range of agricultural enterprises. While it is being offered for sale in one lot, it does lend itself to sub-division and the agents are willing to explore all options with genuine prospective purchasers.

Much of the farmyard is recently constructed. A slatted easy-feed wintering unit allows safe trapping and storage of animal waste, while it may be subdivided to meet animal requirements and incorporates a safe labour-saving, covered, animal-handling system.

There are a number of dry goods storage sheds in the yard, some of which have silage walls incorporated.

There are extensive areas of flat concrete fronting the covered areas and these are designed to eliminate the possibility of any soiled liquids escaping from the system.

Jewel in the crown

The dwelling is really the “jewel in the crown”. Strategically located on the verge of the farm, it is orientated to take full advantage of the stunning views of the Sliabh Mish mountains, Tralee Bay with all its northern inlets and, of course, the setting sun to the west.

“The house itself was architect-designed and is almost impossible to describe it adequately with words,” commented the agents.

“Suffice to say that is a structure that is designed, built and finished to meticulous standards. It is spacious and could make an ideal family home or, indeed, because of its location, could be used for commercial purposes.”

Overall, this residential holding offers an opportunity to investors for either stand-alone farming purposes, an add-on to an existing farm or, alternatively, could be used for commercial purposes in the recreational/hospitality sectors.

“Either way, it is sure to generate much interest,” the agents concluded.

The property is for sale by private treaty and price is on application.
