Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold


From Whitchurch: Proceed along Alport Road, heading towards Marbury. Follow the road into Marbury Village and take the first turning on the right towards Wrenbury, in front of the Swan Inn. Continue for approximately 1 mile and the private access road to the woodland will be found on the righthand side of the road adjacent to Townley Farm on the left.

The woodland may be viewed at any reasonable time on production of a copy of the Sale Particulars.

Formerly part of the Duchy of Lancaster, Marley Moss is an attractive 20 acre block of woodland set amongst pasture land. The wood itself is noted as a growing location for Thelypteris palustris or the Marsh Fern, a rare fern from wet habitats. It has been recorded at only five sites, one of which is Marley Moss. For this reason there is an A Grade rating as a Site of Biological Interest for the property.

The crop within the wood comprises a good mix of alder and birch with attractive areas of mature oak. In the eastern half of the property an area of land has been cleared and given over to use as a reed bed. It is understood that substantial works were undertaken circa 2010 to improve this area as a habitat for the Marsh Fern. The reed bed is an attractive feature and in the summer
months provides a haven to significant animal and insect species.

Access over the route ABC is across a field from the county highway. The woodland owner has the right to make up a track to the property so it can easily be accessed. Within the wood are a network of paths and rides that wind their way throughout the crop. The purchaser may easily add to the existing paths and open up further areas of the wood. Through further management this wood has the potential to yield firewood and, subject to planning or a General Permitted
Development Order, a shelter and store could be constructed on site for occasional use.

An outstanding opportunity to purchase a substantial area of woodland with good access with potential for future management and enjoyment of the wood.

The contract will include a covenant to restrict use of the woodland to forestry and agricultural purposes only.

The vendor has an additional 20.8 acres of adjoining grassland, shown hatched on the sale plan, which could be available by separate negotiation via the Selling Agents. Access will be granted via the route ABCD. A fencing liability will be imposed against adjoining agricultural land.

After two years ownership, commercially managed woods qualify for 100% relief from Inheritance Tax. Timber sales are free of all Income Tax and do not attract Capital Gains
Tax. In certain circumstances it is possible to roll-over Capital Gains into the proportion of the purchase price attributable to the value of the land.

These are owned and included in the sale except as reserved by statute.
