A productive light land farm partially suitable for growing root crops
Braes Farm and its land holdings are situated just west of the Dedham Vale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty around the villages of Assington, Newton and Boxford. Braes Farm (Lot 1) lies just off the A134 between Assington and Newton which in turn provides main road access to Colchester to the east and Sudbury to the west. The parcels of land (Lots 2 and 3) are located immediately to the north and south of the A134 at Newton and Boxford respectively.
Colchester provides direct main line rail services to London Liverpool Street as well as a range of retail and leisure amenities. The national road network can be accessed via the A12 18.1 km (11.3 miles) to the east whilst London Stansted Airport lies 55.4 km (35.5 miles) to the south west providing domestic and international flights.
Braes Farm represents an attractive investment opportunity to
purchase two productive blocks of high value farmland in south
Suffolk. Some of the land supports a root crop rotation although there is no water offered for sale with the land. Slightly apart from the land sits an attractive and versatile small holding boasting a 4 bedroom bungalow in about 2.8 acres with a range of livestock buildings and meadows.
