Glebe Farm – Lot 1:
Glebe Farmhouse is a detached four-bedroom house subject to an Agricultural Occupancy Condition (AOC). The house is accessed along a sweeping private driveway surrounded by its own gardens and grounds. The house has four double bedrooms with three reception rooms and a good sized kitchen/breakfast room. The house is situated at the heart of the farm with fine views to the south and south east over its own land.
The farm buildings are located along the same private drive as the farmhouse and comprise a range of modern farm buildings around a hardcore yard. The buildings briefly comprise a detached grain store, modern general purpose building with adjoining covered cattle yards and semi-dilapidated traditional stone barn with some potential for conversion to residential use, subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents.
The land mainly runs to the south from the main farmstead and benefits from good road frontage onto the Maidford road. Save for two paddocks close to the house the land is generally in arable production although some areas are in temporary grassland. The land is split into generous sized enclosures making it ideal for modern farm machinery. The land is generally level, and is classified as Grade 3 under the Agricultural Land Classification. Soils on the property are principally free draining, slightly acid sandy soils. A past cropping schedule is available upon request.
Directly accessed from the Maidford Road is Burntfield Copse which is a delightful semi-mature woodland that encapsulates the spirit of the property with a wealth of wildflowers. The woodland is a place to relax and unwind but could equally be utilised for sporting purposes.
