Pursa Farm is situated in South Cheshire, close to the Welsh border. The small village of Shocklach, which boasts a highly regarded primary school and village pub, is only approximately one mile distant. The larger and busier village of Malpas is
approximately four miles away and provides a range of shopping facilities catering for everyday needs, as well as both primary and secondary schools, which are rated by Ofsted as “good” and
“outstanding” respectively.

Both Chester and Wrexham are readily accessible from this location. Recreational activities in the area include golf and spa facilities at Carden Park, racing at Bangor-on-Dee and lovely walks
in the surrounding countryside and along the River Dee.

The property
Pursa Farm, if acquired as a whole, represents an excellent stock farm with scope to create a high-quality and attractive family home. The farm buildings are nicely separated from the farmhouse and would provide the basis for a small livestock unit or other uses. The land is nicely laid out in one compact block and readily accessible from the farmstead. Alternatively, the property may be purchased in separate lots, as
detailed within these sales particulars. The house and buildings each have potential for improvement and added value, while the
land will be of interest to local landowners and farmers looking to expand, and investors seeking a safe and tax efficient asset into which to invest their money.

NOTE - This is for Lot 2 only, as described within the sales particulars available online.

Lot Two - The Farm Buildings
The farm buildings have a separate entrance off Pursa Lane, providing access to a yard to the front of the traditional range of brick and slate farm buildings. A rear yard is accessed through
the driftway where there are more modern steel-framed buildings, a timber-sided silage clamp and a cow cubicle building. Planning approval was granted under Reference No: 20/01332/PDQ for the conversion of the traditional farm buildings into four residential dwellings. There is no requirement to provide affordable housing and, whilst interested parties should make
their own enquiries and satisfy themselves independently, no Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) should be payable. The requisite forms relating to CIL can be provided upon request.
A site plan showing the layout of the four converted dwellings is included within these particulars and copies of the planning approval and approved plans can be made available upon request from the selling agent.

Method of sale
The property is offered for sale by Informal Tender, as a whole or in four lots. Tenders should be submitted on the prescribed form, available upon request, by 12 noon on Thursday 10th September 2020. Copies of the planning approval, existing and proposed plans, and ecological surveys pertinent to Lot 2 are available upon
