A desirable opportunity for you to own a good sized parcel of land in one of the UK's most sought-after locations. This block of pasture land is currently overgrown, but would be suitable for a range of recreational or amenity uses, or a variety of other uses (STPP).

LAND VALUES
Despite the Brexit-related uncertainties, the farmland market has proven more resilient than many might have predicted as land prices increased 2% last year.

Investors have played an increasing role in the farmland market as they tend to be attracted to tangible assets as they see them as a safe haven for their capital. Land remains in considerable demand for capital investment for many non-farming reasons, including development potential, privacy, tax reasons, or amenity.

In the immediate future it is anticipated that land prices will continue to rise, supported by a lack of supply.

METHOD OF SALE
The land is offered for sale by private treaty. The freehold is available with vacant possession upon completion.
