Separate sale for Yorks farmhouse?

TWO adjoining farms near the West Riding of Yorks now are for sale as a whole or in seven lots.

Philip Bartle, Bartle & Son said: "The house on the farm is of better quality than usual for a unit of this size and being in a popular residential location it could be bought separately."

Burton Common and Brecks Farm, near Ferrybridge are guided at in excess of about £2.18m for the whole although the presence of neighbouring farmers encouraged Mr Bartle to divide the 557 acre unit into lots.

As a separate lot Burton Common Farm includes a pair of cottages, which might be available with vacant possession, a range of traditional farm buildings with some conversion potential, modern farm buildings including grain storage with capacity for more than 1400t and a pig unit.

This is designed for 2000 pigs including a 220-sow unit and the space for rearing to bacon weight. With 292 acres the lot is guided at £1.125m.

Most of the remaining arable acreage is split into four lots, ranging from the 206 acre Brecks Farm – which is guided at £600,000 -to a 6 acre field valued at £3492/acre.

All the land is grade 2 and has previously been cropped with cereals and roots.

The farmhouse and an acre is valued separately at £275,000 and an adjoining 19 acre block of amenity woodland and pasture is guided £75,000. &#42
