A 53ac farm of good well-maintained land with good cattle sheds and a modern house is on the market in Co Limerick. The farm is at Fort East, outside Charleville.
It’s for sale by private treaty and the auctioneer is Sherry Fitzgerald Stack who are based in Abbeyfeale.
Fort East is on the road from Charleville to Garyfine and the Bruff Line. It’s a convenient, central location on which to farm. It’s 7km from Charleville.
Thirty minutes in the car will get you to Limerick city, Mallow, Mitchelstown, Tipperary town or Newcastlewest. Cork city centre is 65km away.
It’s a grassland area, dominated by drystock and dairying. The farm for sale is just off the local road, down a laneway, on which it has frontage.
The farm is laid out in six main divisions, further divided into paddocks. All fields have been reseeded in the past six years.
The land is clean and well maintained and there is no waste.
Farmhouse and buildings
The farmhouse and yard are in the centre of the farm, approached by a wide, well surfaced roadway which runs further on through the farm, giving year round access to all fields.
There is a range of sheds and all are modern and in good condition.
They include a four-bay slatted unit, a four-bay round-roof hay barn with two stables, a four lean-to with storage shed, a four bay shed with crush, a two bay round roofed shed and a 12m × 9m garage workshop.
The house is single storey and a generous 180sq metres (1,940sq feet) in size. It was extended and refurbished in 2011 and is in excellent condition.
The rooms include a sitting room with a solid fuel stove, two windows and French doors onto a paved patio area at the rear of the house. The kitchen/dining room has oak fitted units, a range cooker and three windows.
There are three bedrooms. The attic has been floored and provides significant storage, measuring 13m × 3m (42’8” × 9’10”). There is oil-fired central heating and solar water heating. The windows are triple glazed.
Auctioneer Maurice Stack describes the holding as a model farm.
“The land is fertile with not an ounce of waste. It’s ideal for beef or dairying,” he says. The guide price is in the region of €750,000.
