Boundary Farm is a highly productive commercial arable farm with a small area of pasture which has been farmed by the current owners since its purchase in 2006. The vendors have also invested heavily in improvements to land and drainage in the last five years.
The land is gently undulating and comprises large fields with excellent vehicular access for ease of machinery operation with an extensive range of modern grain storage/general purpose buildings lying at the centre of the farm.
The land extends in total to 1,204.94 acres (487.62 hectares) or thereabouts and is mostly Grade 3. The Soil Series of England & Wales describes the land as Wickham and Denchworth, loamy soils over clay, suitable for winter cereals and short term grassland.
The land benefits from a comprehensive under drainage scheme in most of the fields.
The exceptional range of modern grain and general purpose buildings (the majority constructed since 2008) lie at the centre of the holding and provide more than adequate storage for the farm and private storage for the continued expansion of arable farming operations in the local area. In addition there is a site with detailed planning consent for the erection of a new farm house. Two traditional farm buildings and a three arch former railway bridge have the potential for conversion to residential dwellings (subject to planning).
The arable land has been farmed on a rotation of winter wheat, winter barley and winter oil seed rape and has produced continuous high yielding crops.
The farm has been improved by the under drainage scheme, the amalgamation of a number of fields, digging and widening of ditches and the widening of gateways. The combine header need only to be removed once during harvest across the whole farm.
The land is mainly level but gently undulates towards the east and west from the centre of the farm with the River Leam running at the eastern end.
The farm extends in total to approximately 1,204.94 acres (487.62 hectares) comprising 1,122.92 acres (454.44 hectares) of arable land, 37.95 acres (15.36 hectares) of grass and the remainder comprising buildings, yard tracks, spinney, former railway lines, ponds etc.
The claimable area from the RLR maps is approximately 1,154.75 acres (467.32 hectares).
The land is shown edged red on the plan and a complete schedule of acreage is available upon request together with the Land Registry plans.
The range of modern farm buildings were predominantly constructed in the last three to four years and comprise three main buildings of galvanised steel portal framed construction to industrial specification with grain walling to 3m and eaves height of 6.70m (22'), electric roller shutter doors at each end and concrete floors.
Building No.1: 48m x 30m (160' x 100')
Building No.2: 48m x 18m (160' x 60')
Building No.3: 48m x 30m (160' x 100') (41,000 sq ft)
Level fill storage in the three main buildings is estimated to be approximately 8,000 tonnes.
There is a range of older concrete and steel portal framed buildings comprising 27.4m x 12m (90' x 40') and 24m x 9m (80' x 30') (6,000 sq ft) providing a further 1,000 tonnes of storage with internal spray store 10.9m x 4.36m, water storage and diesel tanks.
A large concrete apron surrounds the buildings and there is single and three phase electricity connected.
There is space for a bespoke drying system to be installed within the buildings.
The vendors' analysis of crop yields sold from the holding per acre in 2011 were: winter wheat 4.5 tonnes, winter oil seed rape 1.8 tonnes and winter barley 3 tonnes.
The extensive modern buildings would comfortably accommodate grain from the holding or from further land that could be farmed in the area and may also have opportunities for other non-agricultural use.
There are two small ranges of traditional farm buildings and a three arch former railway bridge which in the agent's opinion all have the potential for conversion to residential use, subject to planning permission (Rugby Borough Council).
There is a long canal frontage to the farm with areas of land that are at or below canal level and therefore could provide the opportunity for the creation of an inland waterway marina.
The farm could also have the potential for renewable energy with the possibility of a wind and/or solar farm at the holding. The farm is not affected by any compulsory purchase orders nor is it affected by the current HS2 proposals in any way.
Planning permission was granted under appeal reference APP/E3715/A/09/2096161 for a farm house subject to an agricultural occupancy condition. The planning conditions are shortly to be discharged to allow development to commence.
Plans and planning permission for the house and buildings are available to view at the agentís offices.
