Gloucestershire farm with sporting potential

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.
