It has been fully insulated and fitted with “top end stuff” from the bathroom to the kitchen.

Claims of €7,500 per year include €2,300 in ANC, €2,200 in Special Protection and €3,000 in Glas.

An additional 21ac package, five minutes drive away, can also be purchased.
“The house is now finished to a very high standard and the farm is ready to go to a new family to enjoy the good life,” he said.
