Full description

Tenure: Freehold

LOCATION: See attached Location Plan over.
This attractive relatively level block of quality pasture land sits along the northern developed settlement boundary of Bishops Waltham just within the South Downs National Park and lying adjacent to residential properties off Butts Farm Lane and Rareridge Lane, Bishops Waltham. The land lies about 75 - 80 metres above sea level and accordingly affords wonderful views over the adjoining woodland and natural chalk downland to the north and across and towards Winchester and west towards Wintershill and Durley.

DIRECTIONS/ACCESS: See attached Location Plan.
Vehicular access can be gained to the land being offered for sale from Colville Drive and then Butts Farm Lane at the west end of the property. A full right of way for all purposes at all times will be granted over that right of way to all of the land offered for sale. Viewing the property on foot would be sensible as there is a public footpath that crosses the land for sale as shown on the Sale Plan. There is no farm livestock nor horses or ponies on any part of the property currently offered for sale.

GENERAL DESCRIPTION:
This attractive parcel of land is on the open market for the first time in many decades and is being offered for sale either as a whole or in smaller lots to accommodate potential purchasers specific and particular requirements. The land lies relatively level and has been down to pasture land and grazing for nearly 20 years; the quality of pasture and grassland is well recognised and consistently makes excellent hay and haylage for thoroughbred livestock, horses and ponies.

The land is largely well fenced against the residential properties to the south, farmland to the east and the hanger woodland and chalk downland and paddock land to the north with one internal fenceline. A natural broadleaf amenity hedgerow forms the eastern boundary of the land adjacent to another working mixed farm.

A large field of 19.471 acres makes up the eastern area of the land, with potential for smaller paddocks out of the 9.702 acres to the west closer to the residential properties off Rareridge Lane and Colville Drive.

The land is shown on the Ministry of Agriculture Land Classification Plan as Grade 3 and the Soil Survey of South East England indicates light free draining, H5 upper chalk soils.

SERVICES:
There are two overhead 11kV SSE electric lines with poles. There is a mains water supply at the west end of the property into which connections can be made subject to metering, sub-metering, installation and agreed run of underground pipework. The land is sold subject to a Portsmouth Water Company 24" water main as shown on the sale plan.

LAND REGISTRY:
The land has Registered Title with the Land Registry and has also been Registered on the Rural Land Register (RLR) and is eligible for EU subsidy payments through the Rural Payments Agency (RPA) and the Basic Payment Scheme (BPS) subject to cross compliance and a minimum of 12.5 acres per holding.

TENURE AND POSSESSION: Freehold with vacant possession.

VIEWING:
The land can be viewed at any time during daylight hours on foot whilst in possession of a set of these sale particulars.
