A Tale of Two Properties - A Race Against Time

The scorching summer of 2018 has been a notable success for the Farm and Equine Team at Axminster with the linked sales of two excellent East Devon equine properties.

A Tale of Two Properties  -  A Race Against Time

Crabhayne Farm is a compact country estate and the home of Crabhayne Racing Stables surrounded by 90 acres of pasture, with lakes and native woodland adding to the appeal.  The gloriously situated 9 bedroom Grade II listed farmhouse came with a 3 bedroom detached cottage, excellent equine facilities including over 40 stables, 5.5 furlong gallop, 2.5 furlong cantering track, horse walker and lunging ring. 

Although not on the market, the owners of Edge Farm Stables, Branscombe viewed and fell in love Crabhayne Farm as the perfect home for their family and horses.    Rising to the challenge, Symonds & Sampson brought Edge Farm Stables to the market at very short notice, and to ensure a secure sale with funds available for the onward purchase within a strict timetable, the experienced farm agents proposed the method of sale by formal tender.  Edge Farm Stables offered a building plot, stable yard and arena, with stunning views across its 27 acres of paddock the sea beyond.  Clever marketing of two superb properties swiftly resulted in two successful sales and two delighted clients! 

When you want to secure your dream property and are not even on the market – sound advice and timing are everything.
