A ring fenced arable farm with village farmhouse, barn with permitted development rights potential, equine and sporting interests.

Manor Farm comprises of a village farmhouse with walled garden, equestrian yard and associated grazing. There is a portal framed agricultural building with permitted development rights application pending for conversion to residential dwelling and a ring fence of mainly arable land. There are a number of well laid out woodland enclosures which combined with game cover and natural topography enable the farm to host an attractive and successful shoot. In all extending to about 483 acres (195 ha) For sale by private treaty as a whole or in up to 3 lots.

Manor Farmhouse is a Grade II listed period dwelling sited within the village on the south easterly edge of the farm.

A handsome and substantial property, the dwelling is currently split into two dwellings but is more likely to suit being combined again. The easterly section is just winding down from being used in conjunction with an award winning bed and breakfast business. The property has 8 bedrooms, 2 kitchens, associated pantry’s / larders and sitting and dining rooms as well as bathrooms, toilets, utility rooms.

In need of modernisation to bring the property to current standards it provides excellent scope to return it to a singular family home.

To the rear of the house is a walled garden with listed, thatched wall, adjacent tennis court and swimming pool. There are ancillary outbuildings forming the boundary bordering the roadside. Behind is a small paddock with shelter and adjacent open fronted portal framed barn used for machinery storage but with potential for conversion.

The farm provides an excellent partridge and pheasant shoot, currently in conjunction with land nearby. We are informed that the farm can provide in isolation 5 or 6 good drives at present with scope for perhaps 6 100-150 bird days through the season.

Close to the village and near the farmhouse is an equestrian yard complex and associated paddocks and woodland extending to about 25 acres adjoining the farm road. Currently used as a livery yard the yard provides 23 stables in all with 14 being of concrete block constriction, 5 of wooden construction and 4 in metal buildings. In addition there are ancillary areas including 2 tack rooms, 3 feed stores, coffee room and toilet, there is also a manege adjacent. Mains electricity and water connected albeit through the farm itself.

Access to the A338 is some 450m away to the east via the farm road with the grazing being located in 2 blocks of fenced paddocks either side of the same access road.

On the westerly boundary of the farm lies an agricultural building of about 7,500 sq.ft in total. With chalk floor and 2 enclosed sides the building is located outside the AONB and has a Permitted Development Rights application pending for conversion to a residential dwelling.

The balance of land extends to about 455 acres and lies in a ring fence of mainly arable cropping. In a number of enclosures the internal boundaries are banks, hedges and wooded enclosures as is common in such settings. The land generally undulates but rises to its highest point being a trig point to the north west of the farm. Adjacent is Inham Down which includes a steep grassed bank and woodland used in the shoot as well as a grass airstrip which has been used historically and still features in pilots guides. The land falls away to the south with a natural bowl to the east which is well utilised in the shoot.

An arable farm growing a mix of winter crops at present but with areas of grass, some of the land is in environmental schemes with woodland and game cover plots throughout. Well served by tracks, either stoned or tarmacadam the balance of the land has access via grassed paths or rides in the woodland. There is piped water to some fields and a number of footpaths cross the land. A byway lies on the northerly and southerly boundaries and the farm is within a Countryside Stewardship Scheme.

Classified as shallow lime rich soils over chalk or limestone the land is well suited to its current uses and is further characterised as being Grade III on the Agricultural Land Classification maps.

The next steps...

Before making an offer on a property you will want to consider your financial situation, your income and outgoings.

Will you finance the purchase of your next property from the sale of an existing property which can put you in a chain, arrange a mortgage through your bank or buy the property outright.
To help you finance your next property purchase, we have a long established relationship with an independent mortgage broker who can discuss your situation with you.

Remember that having a 'mortgage decision in principle' can make you a more attractive buyer when you make an offer on a property. Contact our mortgage advisers for free, no obligation and impartial advice.
Some advantages of a broker are:

  • They do all the legwork for you, working on your behalf with the lender
  • They compare wholesale mortgage rates from a large number of banks and lenders all at once
  • Wholesale interest rates can be lower than retail (bank branch) interest rates
  • You get more loan options because they work with numerous banks and lenders
  • Brokers can finance tricky deals because of their knowledge and various lending partners
  • Are typically easier to get in contact with, less bureaucratic.

However with your bank maybe able to:

  • Build off existing relationship (discounts if you have a checking/saving account)
  • You may already know the banker who will handle your mortgage
  • Perhaps more trustworthy, more accountable than a smaller shop
  • Lower interest rates in some cases
  • Ability to add mortgage to existing banking profile and make automatic payments from linked account.

When it comes to making an offer on a property a bit of negotiation is to be expected, however don't offer so little that you end up in a lengthy negotiation process, as you might lose the property altogether if someone else makes a higher bid.
