Farm land for sale

Halstead

Sold STC £400,000

Property Description

Full description

The land at Washlands forms part of Barr Hall Farm that in total extends to about 710 acres and is being offered for sale as a whole or in up to eight lots.

Location

The land is located close to and on the north west side of Sible Hedingham, a large village with some local shops. There is a wider range at Halstead and more extensive shopping facilities at Sudbury and Colchester.

Access to the trunk road network is either by the A120 dual carriageway at Braintree (10 miles), the A12 at Colchester (20 miles) or the A14 at Bury St Edmunds (25 miles). There is a mainline railway station at Colchester with branch lines at Braintree and Sudbury.

Farmland

The land is situated between two minor roads and has access onto both. It forms a single block divided into four fields, all used for the production of combinable crops.

The farmland is detailed on the MAFF (now DEFRA) Land Classification Plan as being grade 2. The Soil Survey of England and Wales describes the soil as mainly being of the Hanslope and Ashley series. Whilst being good quality cereal growing land it forms an attractive block of undulating land. The majority is contained in one field that is of a size suitable for modern farming techniques. There is good access to the fields from the public highway. Much of the land has been under-drained. Further details regarding the cropping and drainage are available from the vendors agents on request.
