With good modern farm buildings and a large, attractive period house, Towns Green Farm at Wettenhall in Cheshire has many of the ingredients buyers are looking for.
The 102ha (253-acre) farm near Tarporley is for sale as a whole or in two lots with a guide price of £2.8m. Most of the land is pasture but there is just over 50 acres of well managed woodland, says James Willis of Denton Clark.
A large courtyard range of traditional buildings lies close to the house while the newer buildings, including substantial cattle housing and silage clamp, are set further away.
There are also 17 loose boxes, tack rooms and several foaling boxes.
The 1850s house has four reception rooms, six bedrooms and three bathrooms, while a separate two-bedroom courtyard flat has been converted from former farm buildings and there is a heated swimming pool.
“It isn’t often these sort of farms become available, which include a stunning farmhouse, good range of traditional and modern farm buildings, coupled with 250 acres of arable and grassland within the heart of Cheshire,” said Mr Willis. (Denton Clark 01244 409 660)
Further south in the Shropshire Hills area of outstanding natural beauty, Bank House Farm provides an increasingly rare opportunity in this area, with tremendous scope for improvement, expansion and diversification, says Nock Deighton.
The former dairy holding is in a ring fence, currently running cattle and sheep.
