A 97ac farm with good land, a good farmyard and a very nice farmhouse has just come on the market in Co Galway.
Given its size and all round quality, this property will generate a lot of interest.
The farm is just outside Kilconly, in the north of the county. It’s on offer from auctioneers Keane Mahony Smith, by private treaty.
The farm is Millburn House, located 3km from Kilconly, in the Ardour area. This put it 16km from Tuam and 50km from Galway city.
This is an area with good land and good farming.
The holding for sale is made up of 92ac of good-quality land, all in grass, plus 5ac of bog some 5km away.
The farm is being run as a beef operation by the present owners who also have an interest in pedigree breeding. The 92ac is all in one block and it has some 250m of frontage onto the public road. Water is piped to all fields from a private well. There are good boundary walls and fences, the agents say.
House and yard
The farmhouse and yard are in the centre of the land, set back from the road and accessed by a 500m avenue.
The yard has five main sheds, all of modern design and in good condition. There is slatted accommodation for 150 cattle, a walled silage pit, a hay shed with lean-to, a four-bay back-to-back general purpose shed and an original cut stone barn with recently restored loft.
The two-storey farmhouse is a stand-out feature of this farm. It’s large and in very good condition. It has been tastefully restored and extended over the years and now is 2,900sq ft in area.
The ground floor has two reception rooms, the first with an open fireplace, the second with a stove and French doors leading to the garden patio.
The kitchen has an oil-fired Rayburn. There is an office and a utility room. Upstairs there are four bedrooms, two en-suite and all with fitted wardrobes, and a study room.
There are gardens to the front and back of the house, landscaped and with mature shrubs and trees.
The asking price for the farm is in the region of €1.5m.
