    attractive agricultural opportunity to farmers and investors alike.

    Turves Bungalow
    The bungalow is set off the public road with a shared farm entrance to the main farm yard while also benefitting from a separate vehicular access and parking to the side of the bungalow. The property is detached and constructed from red brick with a tile roof and single story, surrounded by gardens. The accommodation includes a kitchen with range of fitted units, utility room, dining room that benefits from an open fire and living room. There are two bedrooms and family bathroom off the central hallway.

    The bungalow will require investment and modernisation throughout. The property is afforded privacy through the planting of a range of coniferous trees to the side of the property adjacent to the road and a shelter belt of broad leaf trees adjacent to the agricultural land.

    Farm buildings
    To the north of the bungalow there are a range of farm buildings that provide storage for crops and general purpose sheds for storing machinery.

    Principal Grain store – constructed from red brick walling, cement fibre roof and wall cladding with sliding doors and a concrete floor.

    Open Fronted Machinery Shed – steel frame, concrete block work walling, timber panelling to the sides and cement fibre roofing.

    Two grain bins – steel construction sat on concrete pads and conveyor operated.

    The farmland lies in two separate blocks divided by the Crowland Road, access to both blocks of land is directly from the Crowland Road with farm tracks leading to the fields. The western block also benefits from an access off Turves Road, an unadopted private road running from Green Road.

    The farmland extends to approximately 195.38 acres (79.06
    hectares). The fields are of a good size and regular shape for modern farming practices.

    The land is classified as Grade 1 and 2 under the MAFF Provisional Agricultural Land Classification with the Grade 1 land being located to the western parcel of land closest to the A16.
