"As a largely untouched vale farm, there is considerable potential for a purchaser"
Symonds & Sampson are instructed to sell an interesting block of 120.99 acres on the outskirts of Sturminster Newton.
The ring-fenced block of land was purchased by the Cross family in 1927, with the level or gently sloping pasture either grazed or cut for hay or silage by the family, or local dairy farmers for nearly 100 years. Within the land is a steel framed agricultural building with a second smaller barn and small concrete yard, accessed via a track from the road.
The land has considerable agricultural and conservation appeal, with mature hedges around the 7 fields, a small copse, and Chivrick’s Brook and the River Stour on its boundaries. An added bonus is around 500 metres of single bank fishing rights on the Stour.
Andrew Tuffin, Head of Farm Agency believes the farm presents an exciting opportunity, ‘As a largely untouched vale farm, there is considerable potential for a purchaser to farm the land more intensively, enlarge or extend the buildings, or even build a farmhouse within Class Q permitted development, subject to consents.’
