Former dairying enterprise on 122ac with residence hits the market

Timothy O’Connell Auctioneer (IPAV – Licence 2692), has introduced to the market, MountKeeffe House, Newmarket, Co. Cork, a top-class residential holding, being sold on behalf of the executors of the late Benjamin Guerin.

Built in the mid-1700s, this imposing period residence, oozing with character, occupies circa 3,735 sq.ft of accommodation over three floors.

It comprises a kitchen, dining room, sitting room, 6 bedrooms, 1 bathroom and is BER exempt.

According to the selling agent, “The property is in great condition, but it is in need of renovation and modernisation with outstanding potential”.

“Sitting on a private setting with picturesque surroundings, so to no surprise there is serious interest to date.”

“The farm consists of circa 122-acres and was an outstanding dairy enterprise in the past.”

“It is an olden-type farmyard which would have been state-of-the-art in its time with extensive out offices including sheds, a slatted house, an old type milking parlour, silage pits and cubicles.”

“The farm is suitable for most agricultural enterprises due to the top class lands and will be of interest to local farmers looking to expand existing holdings, and people aspiring for their dream property to establish a thriving farming enterprise. Viewing is by appointment only.”

Some key highlights of the holding include its extensive road frontage onto the Newmarket – Charleville Road, exceptional accessibility, and its “undeniable” potential for establishing a farming enterprise.

According to the auctioneer, there is “strong” demand for land locally and recent activity in the area has been mainly from dairying as it is the renowned dairy area in a prime location.

This property is conveniently situated adjacent to the town of Newmarket, nearby towns include Kanturk and Mallow.
