About this property
33 Lisoid Road is a mixed arable and livestock farm extending to about 139 acres in total. It has a spectacular coastal position with exceptional views over the surrounding County Down landscape, in particular towards the Mourne Mountains. The farm includes a renovated farmhouse and an immaculate range of farm buildings. Situated to the west of the farmyard and with separate access, is a site with foundations laid and planning permission to construct a dwelling house.
The free-draining, productive farmland is in five separate holdings, with each block having the ability to grow arable crops and good swards of grass. There is excellent access to all of the blocks of land via public roads. The topography is a combination of level and gently undulating land, ranging in elevation from about 3 metres (10 feet) above sea-level at lot 5 to a high point of about 41 metres (135 feet) above sea level at lot 2. A particular feature is the standard of fencing and hedgerows throughout the farm, with many double fenced. The fields are generally of a good shape and size for modern agriculture and have a mains water supply, with the majority of the fields having drinking troughs.
The current farming system includes an in-hand commercial flock of breeding ewes and a herd of suckler cows. Arable crops are grown on the farm, including winter wheat and spring barley in 2020.
