About this property

  • CLOSING DATE FOR OFFERS - 12 noon – Thursday 9th June 2022.

    Gripps Farm is an attractive residential farm with wonderful coastal views. The property is accessed via a sweeping drive and includes traditional farm buildings, with potential for conversion to alternative uses (subject to the necessary consents) and a range of modern farm buildings. Productive farmland surrounds the property, with gentle undulation adding to the attractive setting.

    Gripps Farmhouse - Gripps farmhouse is brick built part rendered with a pantile roof and sits on the western fringe of the farmstead. The property requires full renovation and is attached to a large traditional farm building which has potential for extension to the living accommodation, or conversion to an additional dwelling (subject to consents).

    Ground floor accommodation includes entrance hall, cloakroom, utility, kitchen with double doors to dining room with open fire, living room with open fire and shower room, with WC and sink. First floor accommodation includes four bedrooms, one of which has a corner shower. The second floor extends to two large rooms, currently providing additional storage. There is a small lawn and garden, with parking area to the south of the property. The property has solid fuel central heating system from an open fire with back boiler.

    Farm buildings - The traditional farm buildings at Gripps Farm sit in a courtyard in the centre of the property. The principal building is a large Granary attached to the farmhouse, part of which has a mezzanine floor, this range also includes a single story extension. In addition, there are stables and former piggeries to the north and east. These buildings are traditional red brick and stone built with pantile roofs or fibre cement replacements, some need renovation and improvement. There is potential for alterative uses such as annex accommodation, holiday cottages, office space or stabling and livery use (subject to the necessary consents).

    In addition, there are two ranges of modern farm buildings, which sit either side of the farm access, these are ideally suited to livestock and arable farming or could be repurposed for equine or alternative uses.

    The south range includes a large timber frame Dutch barn with hardcore floor and fibre cement roof and Yorkshire boarding, from which two lean-to buildings provide crop storage with fibre cement roof, concrete floors and block walls (22.5m x 27m), a further lean-to in the same construction provides machinery storage (22.5m x 7m). A small timber frame straw store (7.5m x 7.5m) and Nissen Hut (6.5m x 4m) complete this range of buildings.

    North of the access the buildings include a former piggery building, concrete block built with part slatted floor and fibre cement roof (15.7m x 8.3m). Adjacent to this is a modest timber framed former covered fold yard, timber frame with part fibre cement, part corrugated steel roof and block walls, part of this building has collapsed (21m x 15m). Beyond this and adjacent to the traditional buildings is a mono pitch timber frame store (18m x 6.5m).

    Land - The farmland lies in a ring fence surrounding the farmstead and adjacent to Lorne Terrace, divided in part by the railway line and a central access track. The land gently undulates, which is common for the area and classified Grade 3 under the MAFF Provisional Agricultural Land Classification. The land is predominantly arable and is fallow for 2022, excepting a small area of permanent grassland. Soils are from the Dunkeswick series, predominantly loam with clay elements. The land is bound by mature hedgerows and a small wooded area to the south, which together with the undulation make for an attractive coastal setting.

    The land to the north of the railway line is accessed via an underpass and track from the farmstead, this land can also be accessed via third party land and a level crossing. Please note this is not a formal right and cannot be guaranteed, historical use has been with consent.
