Description

Approached from a long private drive, Week House Farm is an immaculately presented, attractive diverse farm which last came to the market some 60 years ago. The main residence sits within the farmstead and is positioned in the centre of its own ring fence of land with fantastic southerly views across the farm. The non-listed farmhouse dates back to 1866 and is constructed of natural stone with a slate roof. The property has been renovated over recent years to create what today, is a wonderful, spacious, five bedroom family home.

Previously, the farm has operated as a mixed arable and livestock holding however now runs as a commercial sheep enterprise. The farm lends itself to various different farming systems with an excellent set of set of modern farm buildings, all in fantastic condition. The buildings stem from a concrete yard area and the land is easily accessed via a hard core track which runs through the centre of the farm.

The farm is well equipped for equestrian purposes as there is a useful range of stabling with potential to create significantly more (stp).

Land
The land extends to approximately 214.66 acres and the majority comprises level pasture with areas of steeper ground and useful blocks of woodland high in amenity value. The land is complete with high quality stock proof fencing and water is connected to most fields. The land is accessed via a council road on the eastern boundary and there is a hard core track running through the centre of the farm which proves important when moving stock across the farm and for access. The land is classified as grade 3 according to the agricultural land classification maps and although been laid to grass for 5 years, is very capable of growing a wide variety of crops and has done in the past.

Acreage: 214.66 Acres
