GENERAL
Causewayside Farm as a whole comprises a four bedroom barn conversion
(Badger Cottage), a range of modern steel portal frame agricultural buildings with the benefit of planning permission for partial demolition and conversion into two dwellings and approximately 5.59 acres of woodland and 99.01 acres of grassland or thereabouts.

The property has been lotted in such a way that will be of interest to a wide range of potential purchasers, equestrian, agricultural, hobby farmers, residential or investment market. The planning permissions that have been obtained for residential conversion have also created a development opportunity that will be of interest to private individuals or small developers.

The availability of an additional 84 acres of land on a rental basis from three local landowners, all of whom have indicated their approval to continue letting the land to the new owners of Causewayside Farm, means that someone purchasing the whole or the majority of the farm could operate a sustainable farm business.

There are three farm buildings at Causewayside Farm all of which are in good condition and comprise as follows:

Cubicle shed: 28.65m (94') x 24.08m (79'): A steel portal frame building with part concrete block and part corrugated tin upper side cladding and roof cladding comprising 60 cow cubicles with a central feed passage and former milking parlour.

General purpose shed: 19.2m (63') x 8m (26'): A steel portal frame building with concrete floor, steel sheet side cladding and corrugated cement fibre roof cladding.
