Capparoe, a 56ac farm in Garrymore, is beautifully situated in the shadow of the Silvermines not far from Nenagh in North Tipperary.
The Residential Grass Farm has a number of outbuildings and can be sold as a whole or in lots.
The retail price for the whole thing is estimated by Eoin Dillon of REA Eoin Dillon to be around €495,000.
The property is 2 km from Silvermines and 6 km from Nenagh and is divided by the old Silvermines railway with a parcel of 34.3 ac on one side and 21.7 ac on the other. Underpasses connect the two sides of the farm.
Laid out in 10 fields separated by mature hedges, the perimeter is well fenced with wire fencing secured by concrete posts.
The land has been plowed and reseeded in recent years and produced two crops of silage last summer. It is currently used as zero grazing.
The non-residential portion of the property, which extends to 54.9 ac, can be purchased separately and is estimated at approximately €7,000/ac.
The residence is a traditional 1½ storey house in perfect habitable condition with PVC and aluminum windows.
A small veranda leads into the living/dining area, which is centered around a modern fireplace. From here you access a kitchenette and utility area with two flights of stairs either side of the room leading to two bedrooms upstairs.
While headroom at the doors is somewhat limited, the rooms themselves are well appointed and feature pine ceilings.
Another door from the main living area leads to a sitting room with an inset fireplace.
Beyond this is another bedroom and next to it is the family bathroom.
Outside there are a few smaller storage sheds, while the main farm building is a four-post hayshed with an annexe and some log walls inside, creating workshop spaces and smaller rooms for the livestock.
The house with the sheds on 1.1ac can be bought as a separate unit and costs €159,950.
Eoin Dillon expects good local interest in the farm and house.
The land would lend itself well as an outdoor farm; the house would be an ideal starter home and could do with modernizing but would be habitable immediately.
The whole thing definitely has what it takes to be an independent hobby farm.
