Strong demand for Cornish farm

Savills has wrapped up the sale of Downs Farm on the north Cornwall coast.

The 267 acres of productive arable and pasture land, three-bedroom farmhouse and excavated site for a new livestock building attracted considerable demand and sold for close to its £1.65m guide.

“Downs Farm was an extremely successful sale and proved that there is still a buoyant market for commercial agricultural units,” said Penny Dart of Savills, Exeter.
