The farm is situated on a local road and has over 200m of frontage on to this road. The house and yard are together, located close to the road and approached by a short driveway.

There are a number of round-roofed haysheds in the yard with lean-to add-ons. These are in good working condition.

Farm buildings

The holding was once run as a dairy farm. As a result, the farmyard has a range of sheds. These include round-roofed haysheds with lean-to add-ons, plus the old milking parlour and dairy.

The land is elevated and free draining. It is sheltered by mature hedging at boundaries.

There is also a modern, three-bay slatted beef shed, around 12 years old. This was built to a high specification – more than likely under a Department of Agriculture grant scheme. It has vented sheeting at the back over the concrete wall. There is an overhang canopy to shelter the silage face and there is a vent opening over this also.

The 48ac at Cordoagh and Long is in one block. It has frontage on to a local road.

There are good-quality, diagonal feed barriers which are hinged and latched for easy opening. The cladding is prepainted so there will be no need for spray painting.

The residence is a traditional-style farmhouse. It is two storey and has three bedrooms. It has been empty for a number of years and is now in need of refurbishment. According to auctioneer Stephen Barry, the house has many of the attractive features of a traditional farmhouse.

According to Barry there has been good interest in this farm since it was placed on the market. “It’s a good-quality farm with high, free-draining land.”
