Adaptable farm buildings and good sporting potential are two strong features at Redhill Farm, Redmarley d’Abitot, in Gloucestershire.
An agricultural occupancy condition is attached to the modern five-bedroom farmhouse, while the land is grades 2 and 4 arable and pasture with irrigation facilities. Savills’ Richard Binning has set a guide price of £1.6m for the farm, which has a borehole and a 500,000 gallon reservoir but no abstraction licence.
The farm totals 111.6ha (276 acres) of which almost 47ha (120 acres) is woodland on a 999-year lease which began in March 1949. However, the sporting rights across all of the land are included in the sale. Soil type here is Bromsgrove Series, a well-drained, reddish, coarse loamy soil, mainly over soft sandstone.
There is a good range of modern buildings at Redhill Farm, including a five-bay concrete portal frame general-purpose store, a six-bay concrete frame building, grain store, machinery store and log cabin used as a shooting room. (Savills 01242 548020)
• Savills has also recently sold Mill Farm, Wistow, near Huntingdon, and a 275ha (680-acre) farm in Suffolk for more than £8,000/acre in both cases.
Mill Farm had almost 218ha (543 acres) of bare grades 2 and 3 arable land while the other farm, south of Bury St Edmunds, included a farmhouse and buildings and was sold privately.
The quality of the land played a big part in attracting the high level of interest in both farms, said the agent.
