Hertfordshire land comes to market

Three blocks of land in the Home Counties come to the market this week from Savills.

The first, at Nazeing in Hertfordshire, is two miles out of Broxbourne and covers 145 acres in total.

On the market for £500,000, the land is made up of 39 acres of arable land, which was down to spring barley, 58 acres of lake, which was created after mineral abstraction, and the rest made up of grassland, woodland and smaller lakes.

There is a flood relief channel running through the northern part of the land with floodgates controlled by the Environment Agency. Timber and fishing rights are included in the freehold but the vendor retains mineral rights.

Another Hertfordshire plot with flood relief, four miles from Harlow, at Hoddesdon, has come to the market this week.

The 76-acre grassland adjacent to the River Lea comprises three fields of restored grassland with mature woodland and newly planted woodland.

The land has amenity appeal and would lend itself to a variety of uses, according to Savills, as it attracts wildlife and could be enhanced, subject to planning consent.

With a guide of £275,000, part of the land is registered for SFP, with entitlements being transferred from 2013. Mineral rights are reserved from the sale.

A third plot in Hertfordshire is made up of Grade 2 arable land and is located next to the village of Sleapshyde.

The 87 acres is four miles from St Albans. It includes grassland and woodland and is on the market for £700,000.
