Attractive, well positioned small farm with 3 bedroom bungalow with 2 converted attic rooms and far reaching rural views, generous range of farm buildings, well farmed, predominantly level productive pasture, road frontage, 56 acres in all. EPC Band F.

SITUATION

The property enjoys a rural position just 3 miles north of Halwill Junction and 2.5 miles west of Highampton. Both villages have a range of local amenities, including a village shop, pub, church and OFSTED rated Good and Outstanding primary schools. Nearby, Holsworthy and Okehampton have an extensive range of shopping, leisure and health facilities, both with Waitrose Supermarkets and there is a new and highly regarded Livestock Centre at Holsworthy. The rugged North Cornwall and Devon coastline is approximately 16 miles distant. The farm is bordered by woodland to the south and west, and there is a comprehensive network of paths and minor roads, being excellent for walking and horse riding.

DESCRIPTION

Pinelands offers an excellent opportunity to acquire a small residential livestock farm, comprising an unrestricted 3 bedroom dwelling, and a useful range of farm buildings, set within approximately 56.10 acres (22.70 hectares) of well farmed pastureland. A small river runs through the farm, providing a diverse habitat for a range of wildlife.

ACCOMMODATION

The bungalow, which has recently been re-roofed, enjoys fine, far reaching views, with opportunities for modernisation of the property. The floor plan shows the extent of the accommodation but in brief it comprises a kitchen, sitting room, dining room, 3 bedrooms and a bathroom on the ground floor. Stairs rise from the front hall, leading to 2 attic rooms.

OUTSIDE

There are attractive gardens to the north and east, which are mainly laid to lawns with some mature shrubs and a greenhouse. The farm buildings are accessed past the parking area for the dwelling, providing a good level of security for the buildings.

FARMYARD AND BUILDINGS

To the south of the dwelling is a garage and a range of concrete block and pole barn constructed barns, mainly clad with steel profile sheeting or corrugated tin sheeting.

 

On the far side of these are two substantial cattle yards: a steel portal frame barn, 50' x 45' (15.23 m x 13.70 m) with a central feed passage and a concrete frame barn, 35' x 75' (10.65 m x 22.85 m) with internal cubicles and a feed stance with feed barrier.

THE LAND

The land is comprised in 5 sensibly shaped, highly productive, pasture fields for modern machinery on the eastern side of the river and two smaller, more extensively farmed fields to the west. It can be accessed either through the farmyard or numerous road gateways. It is relatively level, lying between 100m and 110m above sea level. It has been well farmed and maintained.

SERVICES

The farmhouse has mains water, electricity and private drainage. The buildings predominantly have electric lighting and mains water. The land is naturally watered from the river and a network of mains fed water troughs.

AGRICULTURAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL SCHEMES

The relevant number of Basic Payment Scheme entitlements will be made available to the purchaser in time for the 2019 claim. There are no Environmental Schemes affecting the land.

PLANNING

Unusually the bungalow is not subject to an Agricultural Occupancy Condition. Given the easy access onto good roads, there may be potential for a range of diversified uses of the farm buildings, subject to obtaining any necessary consents.

The property is sold subject to and with the benefit of any wayleave agreements in respect of electricity or telephone equipment crossing the property, together with any restrictive covenants or public or private rights of way.
