River Farm offers a rare opportunity to purchase a small farm with enormous potential. The property has been in the same ownership for some 40 years and has been much improved
during this time. The property has flexible residential accommodation contained within an extended farmhouse together with an extensive range of buildings that have been most recently used for storing livestock but have potential for alternative uses subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents. The land contained within Lot 1 is within a ring fence and is gently undulating and ideal for livestock grazing but with a high amenity level. An additional block of traditional permanent pasture is accessed via Furnace Lane offering the chance to create a useful single holding.
River Farm (Lot 1)
River Farmhouse comprises and impressive period farmhouse that is believed to date back to the 1800's. The property is not listed and has been extended to provide extensive and flexible living accommodation. Although currently used as a single dwelling it would have the potential to be subdivided to provide either secondary accommodation or potentially letting rooms or be utilised for home working (subject to necessary planning consents).
The accommodation at present is situated around a good sized well equipped kitchen with adjacent sitting room and dining room with a wing of bedrooms in the recently converted section of the house whilst the older part of the house provides mainly bedroom accommodation. In all there are around 11 bedrooms and associated bathrooms and cloakroom facilities. The farmhouse is centred around a courtyard with additional outbuildings for storage and also providing ample parking areas. The courtyard is separately accessed from the farm buildings. Gardens and a wooded amenity area lie to the south of the main house.
The Farm Buildings
Separately accessed from the farmhouse is a yard and comprehensive range of modern general purpose farm buildings which would formerly have been used for dairying. There are two large covered cattle yards together with a recently erected 5 bay modern general purpose building which has been used for cattle housing but could be well suited to storage or enclosed for commercial use subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents. There is an additional building giving further covered space adjacent and backing on the farmhouse. There is an extensive area of concrete giving potential to expand the existing building range if required. There are also some temporary stables and form silage clamp.
Accessed from the rear yard but also with an entrance onto Furnace Lane is an attractive block of gently undulating permanent pasture surrounded by mature hedgerows and trees. The land is generally stockproof and ideal for either grazing of livestock or equestrian purposes. In all Lot 1 extends to approximately 28.58 acres.
