Description

Greenend Farm last came to the market some 65 years ago and is a unique grassland and arable farm full of opportunity occupying a private position surrounded by approximately 98 acres of land within a ring fence. The farm has a fantastic approach and is centred around an attractive farmhouse, supported by a superb courtyard of traditional buildings suitable for a variety of uses (stp) and a further range of modern farm buildings, the majority of which are currently used for agriculture and storage.

Located just north of the farmstead the current owners have established a luxury glamping business which provides useful diversified income. The combination of a desirable dwelling with secondary accommodation, numerous modern and traditional buildings, stabling, land and further income streams in a private yet convenient location makes the property highly attractive to a number of purchasers.

Approached via a long private drive, the farmhouse and cottage form the southern flank of a highly attractive courtyard with a stunning range traditional farm buildings making up the other three sides. Originally comprising seven bedrooms Greenend Farmhouse was later informally divided to create the main five bedroom and adjoining two bedroom Cottage. Throughout, the accommodation is well proportioned and full of natural light. In its current format the adjoining cottage is ideal for dependent relatives, guests or be let to provide a rental return. Alternatively the cottage could be reincorporated within the main house to provide a fabulous large family home.

THE FARM AND LAND

Protected by approximately 98 acres, together with a good range of buildings, the farm is well suited to cater for a variety of farming enterprises. Formally, the farm was operated as a working dairy farm however today it is being run as an arable and livestock farm. The land comprises predominantly level and gently sloping grade 3 arable and pasture land with good access; the majority of which is stock proof fenced. Part of the land has been in an arable rotation, successfully growing a variety of cereals and the soils comprise typical stagnogley soils from the Brockhurst 1 series.
