A circa 157.80-acre residential holding with sheds and outbuildings has been introduced to the market by Nicholas Dwane Auctioneer and Valuer.

Boasting 1 km of road frontage, the property at Coolroe, Mothel, Carrick-on-Suir, Co. Waterford, is for sale by private treaty, in one or two lots.

“This holding is one of the finest farms to come on the market in county Waterford in years.” the selling agent said.

“The land is laid out in 10 fields, all well fenced and maintained. In keeping with modern farming practice, there is no waste.”

“The land is in excellent heart as it has never been leased or rented and the vendor continues to work the entire holding.”

Dairy potential

Although a beef rearing and fattening farm, it is laid out perfectly to be transformed back to its original use as a dairy farm with central roadway requiring only a modern milking parlour to complete its transformation, according to the selling agent.

The farmyard has a number of sheds and cubicle houses including a mixture of slatted and straw bedded sheds. Silage pits are in place with a large slurry storage unit adjacent to the yard.

“The holding is in one block with good frontage onto the public road with the farmhouse and farmyard located centrally on the holding.”

  • There is a range of sheds and outbuildings to include:
  • Large double garage;
  • Large old milking parlour;
  • The yard has all handling facilities with accommodation for up to 200 cattle;
  • There is a mixture of slatted and straw bedded sheds;
  • 100 cubicles.

The traditional two-storey, stone-built residence is over 100-years-old, with a large two-storey extension to the rear and single-storey (new build) to the side.

“The house is immaculate, very tastefully decorated in keeping with the traditional style and feel, but with a modern twist.”

“The house has many attractive original features and will make a great family home.”

Accommodation includes an entrance hall, an office, a utility room, a kitchen-dining room, five bedrooms, a reading room, a sitting room and bathrooms.

Services and features include a private well, septic tank and oil-fired central heating.
