Further Information

DESCRIPTION

Bolham House Farm is a delightful, exceptionally well managed and maintained poultry farm which offers elements of flexibility and multiple income opportunities. The non listed 4 bedroom family home provides good sized living accommodation set on the Eastern boundary of the farm. The detached, late Victorian style farmhouse has a natural slate roof, part brick, part rendered construction and the house was extended about 10 years ago with the addition of a highly attractive oak framed garden room
with double glazing throughout. In recent years, the farm has diversified into renewables by means of the installation of solar panels and biomass boilers where production is utilised on the farm and also produces additonal income.

ACCOMMODATION

The farmhouse is entered through French doors into the impressive, full width oak framed garden room with natural terracotta floor tiles and under floor heating. Central hallway with door to the left opening to sitting room with an oil fired log burner in a pretty fireplace with a large window looking into the
garden room. Door to right of hallway opens to a dining room with natural wooden floor boards, a log burner and a large window looking back into the garden room. The kitchen is fitted with bespoke units under granite work surfaces, an AGA and natural floor tiles. Beyond the kitchen is a utility and a rear wet room and w/c. Back door opens to lobby with door to graveled
area. Upstairs there are 4 double bedrooms, the master with a walk in wardrobe and one family bathroom with bath, shower, sink and w/c.

GARDENS AND GROUNDS

Outside there is a large, extremely well maintained front garden with mature hedge rows and trees surrounding the property,
creating a sense of privacy. Just to the left of the back door there is a laundry room plumbed in for a separate washer and dryer. Beyond which is a detached wooden clad garage with
electricity, water and a concrete floor that also provides generous storage space. There is a large, well maintained graveled area wrapping around one side of the property which provides ample parking.

POULTRY BUSINESS

The vendors at Bolham House Farm have established an extremely successful, award winning poultry enterprise, all run in hand. Currently, the broiler growers contract is with Faccenda Foods Ltd and there will be options available to the new purchaser to either re negotiate or enter discussions with alternative companies. The poultry units are located to the east of the farmhouse and comprise four substantial buildings on concrete block bases with potential to house up to 200,000 birds at maximum capacity. The farm is currently operating under the current contract with bird numbers of circa 175,000.

RENEWABLES

There is a total of 3 high efficient biomass wood chip boilers on the farm which provide heating to the poultry houses as well as a significant income stream. The boilers are generating in the region of £70,000 per annum with a further 16 years of RHI payments available. In 2012 ground mounted PV panels were installed under an agreement with a 3rd party and these provide electricity to the holding. Further details available from the agent Savills.
