Extending to about 253.43 acres (102.56 hectares), Blounts Farm is a mixed farm with a Grade II Listed eight bedroom farmhouse, two three bedroom bungalows (subject to Agricultural Occupancy Conditions), an extensive range of traditional and modern farm buildings, arable, pasture and woodland.

A significant rental income is generated from the residential properties and the farm buildings, many of which have been let as offices, workshops and storage units.

Many of the farm buildings offer development opportunities subject to securing the necessary planning consent. Situated on the edge of Sonning Common, some of the land may offer long term strategic development potential.

Blounts Farm has been in the ownership of the Vendor's family since 1919 and farmed by three successive generations. The farm once formed part of Blounts Court, the neighbouring property owned by Johnson Matthey, a global leader in sustainable technologies and cutting edge science.

Acreage: 253.43 Acres
