Smallholding set in a rural location
Ryedale Farm, Hale Lane, Frithville, Lincolsnhire
Desirable smallholding located in the heart of Lincolnshire, three bedroom detached bungalow, range of agricultural buildings and pasture land in all about 19.38 acres.
Ryedale Farm is situated close to Sibsey in Lincolnshire. Surroundings are predominantly arable fields interspersed with woodlands and shelterbelts, there is a handful of further dwellings located between Sibsey and Frithville along Hale Lane.
The farm has good transport connections, being only 5.5 miles from Boston railway station with good links to other Lincolnshire market towns. The A16 (1 mile to the east) provides access to Lincoln, Peterborough and onwards to the A1.
Ryedale Farm is a versatile small holding with bungalow, range of farm buildings and approximately 19 acres of productive pasture land that is divided into smaller parcels all with their own water supply. The farm has been previously used as a farm and prior to this we understand was used as a sanctuary for animals.
The bungalow and farm buildings lie on the northern boundary adjacent to Hale Lane with the land running to the south. There are separate accesses for the agricultural buildings and the bungalow with access to the barns leading to the agricultural land.
Ryedale Farm Bungalow
The bungalow sits off Hale lane with a tarmac drive leading to the front of the bungalow with a double garage benefitting from electric roller doors. The property is detached, of stone style construction, tile roof and surrounded by gardens predominantly down to lawn. Accommodation consists of a entrance room with access to garage, office, utility, lounge, dining room, conservatory, breakfast kitchen with range of fitted units, three bedrooms, family bathroom and separate shower room.
The property would generally benefit from some updating and improvement, but makes for a well-proportioned family home with a pleasant outlook and garden, opening to the farmland. There are 16 solar panels located on the roof, we understand that these produce an income through the Feed in Tariff scheme. The property is heated by an oil burner.
The bungalow is subject to an agricultural condition that states:
the occupation of the dwelling shall be limited to a person solely or mainly employed or last employed in the locality in agriculture as defined in Section 290 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1971 or in forestry or a dependant of such a person residing with him (but including a widow or widower of such a person)
The planning permission was granted on 16th December 1980, a copy of which is available from the agents.
West of the bungalow is the range of modern farm buildings which provide opportunity for a range of alternative uses subject to planning permission being granted. Gates from Hale Lane provide access to the buildings and the land to the rear.
General Purpose building: Steel framed and corrugated iron sheet clad, buildings benefit from lean-to either side, concrete block walls and Yorkshire Boarding, with water troughs and two roller shutter doors. There is an adjoining covered way between the general purpose shed and livestock building, this benefits from a cement fibre roof.
Livestock Shed: Steel framed building divided by concrete walling, previously used for livestock with water troughs in 2 bays, double gates to the front of the building. Incorporated into this building is a workshop that has corrugated iron sheet walls and glass windows.
Pole Barn: Open fronted general implement and forage store, corrugated steel roofing and cladding.
Stables: Range of 3 stables and tack room pole barn construction with mixture of corrugated and profile steel roofing and cladding.
The farmland lies in one block to the rear and side of the bungalow and buildings. The land is all down to pasture and is divided into a number of paddocks benefitting from stock proof fencing and water troughs. The land can be accessed through the buildings and there is a droving lane making the movement of stock easier. Land lies flat with some parcels benefitting from hedging.
The land is classified as Grade 2 under the MAFF Provisional Agricultural Land Classification. The soils are described as Loamy and clayey soils.
