Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A block of productive agricultural land with road frontage and close to Kenilworth.
Extending to approximately 74.48 acres or thereabouts.
For sale as a whole or in two lots

The property is situated on Rouncil Lane approximately one mile by road from the centre of Kenilworth which is a market town with a good range of everyday services and facilities and with easy access via the A46 to Coventry, Leamington and Stratford. The situation of the land can be seen on the location plan.

The land forms part of Roundshill Farm run by J C Bostock & Son as a productive Charolais cattle breeding unit and part equestrian livery yard. The land is accessed off Rouncil Lane through two gateways from the highway with a third leading down to a fenced off bridleway. The land is level with well defined hedge and fence boundaries and benefits from natural ponds and ditches to enable livestock drinking and we believe that mains water is available within Rouncil Lane.

The land has been down to pasture as a mixture of Italian rye grass and clover for many years, however, approval has been granted by Natural England through an Environmental Impact Assessment to convert the pasture land to arable land. Purchasers will therefore have the ability to plough up the majority of the land except for two fields which require further examination by Natural England during the summer months (5235 & 5739). A copy of the decision from Natural England can be obtained from the agent, an inspection was carried out.

The fields are interspersed with internal hedges and a number of spinneys and ponds which have been used for the cattle to drink from.

Screening part of the land from the road is a small mature broadleaf tree belt and the land provides for an excellent opportunity for a standalone agricultural unit with the benefit of possible alternative uses subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents. The land will be offered for sale as a whole or in two lots and is shown shaded blue and pink on the plan.
