About this property

  • **Informal Tender Deadline 12:00 on 15 July 2021 - Enquire for details**

    Set in about 176 acres, Gaer Farm is an attractive residential and commercial farm. Previously operating as a successful dairy farm with some infrastructure still in-situ, there is opportunity to reinstate and further develop this business or utilise the buildings and land for alternative uses. There is also ample leisure potential and an opportunity to convert the traditional barns for residential use (subject to planning). The land could also offer an opportunity for developing its environmental potential through re-wilding, or tree planting.

    GAER FARMHOUSE - An attractive traditional farmhouse situated to the south of the farmyard, Gaer farmhouse is accessed via a private tree lined concrete driveway with land owned on both sides. The versatile and well-proportioned accommodation provides ample family accommodation comprising a spacious porch and utility room, shower room with WC. and hand basin, kitchen with a range of fitted cupboards and an oil Rayburn, dining room with a wood burning stove, sitting room and home office.

    On the first floor there is a principle bedroom with fitted wardrobes and three further bedrooms, a family bathroom with tiled walls and suite comprising a shower bath, W.C. and wash basin and the landing with access to two large lofts. All rooms benefit from large double-glazed windows enjoying views over the surrounding garden and the countryside beyond. The property also benefits from an attached store room and garage with additional parking on the driveway.

    GARDENS - The garden has been lovingly tended by the vendor and is a mix of lawn and shrub borders and is an idyllic retreat. The garden also provides privacy from the farm buildings being sheltered by mature trees and bushes. The property also benefits from a stone terrace at the front together with a further terrace to the side.

    FARM BUILDINGS - The farm benefits from a range of traditional stone barns that have potential for conversion into further accommodation (subject to planning). Beyond these barns are a range of more modern farm outbuildings which include a livestock shed with approximately 80 cubicles along with an adjacent loose housing building. Supporting this is a slurry storage tank system, two clamps and an extensive range of other buildings, to include original cow kennels and young stock buildings located adjacent to the stone barns.

    FARMLAND - The farmland extends to approximately 176.47 acres with the majority of land being productive pastureland in manageable enclosures. Currently two crops of silage are taken a year and it also provides over-wintering tack to sheep.
    The main access is provided via the farmyard, but the land also benefits from a right of way from the North West to an adopted road. This right of way is coloured blue on the Sale Plan.
    There is also an area of 2.41 acres of woodland to the south of the farmhouse and a separate area of 2.27 acres of amenity environmental land situated to the North West. The soil type is Class 17, being slowly permeable seasonally wet acid loamy & clayey soils and under the MAFF Agricultural Classification scheme the land is classified as Grade 3a. The diversification potential of this land make it of particular interest to farmers, equestrian, amenity and environmental investors.
