A high quality commercial fenland farm with a Grade II Listed 6 bed house, two let flats and 1700 tonnes of grain storage. In all, about 315 acres
Hall Farmhouse is a Victorian house extending to over 3,800 sqft and thought to date from around 1860. Built using gault brick under a slate roof, the house is accessed from the Warboys Road through a pair of wrought iron gates which lead onto a gravel driveway in front of the house.
The front door leads into a hallway with the dining room to the left and the drawing room to the right, both of which feature large windows, fitted cupboards and open fireplaces. The hallway then leads onto the kitchen and beyond, the sitting room again with an open fireplace, fitted cupboards and French doors out to the garden. Accessed from the sitting room is a study. There is a shower and wc next to the back door. There is a cellar under the stairs. The back door provides access to a secondary parking area and beyond, the farm buildings.
Heading up from the wide staircase are 4 double bedrooms, 2 single rooms, a family bathroom and another which could be suitable as an ensuite (subject to Listed Building Consent).
To the south of the house is the garden with flower beds and fruit trees looking over the farmland whilst, to the north, is a fenced orchard.
Hall Farm Flats
Adjoining the eastern elevation of Hall Farmhouse are a series of cart lodges two of which have been converted into 2 flats. Both flats are let on Assured Shorthold Tenancies and comprise a kitchen, sitting room, bathroom and bedroom.
The land is accessed from the Warboys Road past Hall Farmhouse to your right and the farm buildings to your left. The fields are all a size conducive to modern farming methods and are accessed directly from a central track, part of which is laid with crushed stone.
The western portion of the land closest to the farm buildings is classified as Grade 3, the central portion Grade 2 and the easternmost fields Grade 1. The soils towards the west of the farm are clay based whilst the further east you go the higher the content of peat. Wheat in recent years has averaged 9-10 t/ha, oilseed rape 4 t/ha and sugar beet 75 t/ha. Land is rented seasonally for growing potatoes and onions.
Located below Hall Farmhouse are the farm buildings which comprise 4 adjoining steel framed stores all with grain walling and sliding doors leading onto a concrete apron. The first building has a solid floor and is part insulated. The second, third and fourth buildings all have drying floors served by electric fans, found in the housings to the front of the buildings. A gas tank (rented) enables the use of portable burners if required. Together the buildings have a total capacity of 1,700 tonnes.
The farmland has been occupied under a Contract Farming Agreement since 2011. This agreement has worked well, and the contractor would welcome the agreement continuing with the new owner(s), should the opportunity arise.
