Residential Suffolk farms come to market
TWO Suffolk residential farms, both enjoying stunning locations, have been launched on to the market by the Bury St Edmunds office of Brown & Co.
The sale of the farms, on behalf of executors, includes Preston Manor (pictured) at Preston St Mary, near Lavenham. This productive 242 acre (98ha) arable farm has an elegant Grade II Listed Manor House, which is partly moated.
The six-bedroom manor house, and additional pair of cottages, require improvement to complement the farm. In addition, two timber framed barns offer potential for a variety of alternative uses, subject to planning permission.
The second farm, Woodhouse Farm at Bradfield St Clare, enjoys a secluded position approximately six miles away bordering the Bradfield Woods National Nature Reserve.
Surrounded by its own land, the modern four bedroom farmhouse again offers potential for extension. Woodhouse Farm comprises 203 acres (82ha) of arable land including 16 acres of ancient woodland.
Over recent years, both Preston Manor and Woodhouse Farm have been farmed to a high standard by Strutt & Parker Farms. Both farms are offered for sale in Lots to appeal to farming and residential interests.
“The current demand for quality agricultural land is being reflected by the increase in value we are experiencing,” said Brown & Co land agent, Anthony Holliday. “These are rare offerings and we expect them to be in great demand.”
With a guide price of £2.6million, Preston Manor is being offered for sale as a whole or in four Lots. Woodhouse Farm is being offered for sale as a whole, or in two Lots, with a guide price of £1.6million.
