Full description

Hamilton Piers of Chelmsford are delighted to offer for sale this property and its large plot (also available via smaller plots via separate adverts on rightmove).

This smallholding is located in a tranquil RURAL setting on a TEN ACRE PLOT - currently a Garden Nursery boasting a detached lodge, EQUESTRIAN FACILITIES (with 7 paddocks & menage), and several OUTBUILDINGS potentially SUITABLE FOR DEVELOPMENT* within the Rights for Permitted Devrlopment.

Ideal for those looking to run a business from home, an established garden nursery, or for those looking for an investment/development opportunity.

Bakers Nursery is set in an idyllic rural location on the edge of the sought-after village of Tolleshunt Major - within easy access to the A12, Chelmsford City Centre, and mainline railway stations at Witham & Kelvedon. The property sits on a plot of approximately ten acres (STLS), and boasts an array of outbuildings & polytunnels - some of which the valuer feels would be ideal to develop into resdiential properties under the new permitted development legislation (subject to planning permission).
Externally the property also offers extensive lawned formal gardens, and various stables and paddocks - an ideal property for those looking for equestrian facilities, garden lovers looking to further establish the nursery, or for those looking to develop the existing property/land further (stpp).

The property and its plot must be viewed to be truly appreciated!
