Boghill Farm was formerly a beef farm and comprises extensive farm buildings and associated hardstanding. The total area of land for sale extends to approximately 20.98 acres (8.49 hectares), which includes an area of grazing land of approximately 15.46 acres (6.26 hectares).
Planning permission has been approved (CL/17/0124) for the re-development of the farm buildings into a mixed residential/commercial development of seven newly constructed detached villas, re-development of existing farmhouse, erection of an equestrian/stud facility with associated temporary residential accommodation, the formation of vehicular access and regrading of existing levels. The commercial development is well distanced from the residential area. The regraded existing mound to be planted will provide both a physical and visual buffer between the two areas.
A Variety of sheds are located to the rear of the farmhouse and include a large cattle court (55m x 30m) with an extension (36m x 22m), two slatted courts (each approximately 36m x 11m) and a further court to the east (36m x 6m). A large open silage clamp is located adjacent to the farm buildings, with a further silage pit adjacent to the grazing land. Please note that the barns are currently used as stables and an indoor turnout area.
Potential Residential Sales Value
Due to the excellent and exclusive location, we feel demand will be high for the (7) new build units, once constructed and the re-developed farmhouse. We have carried out our market research and spoken to a local chartered surveyor and would suggest the following re-sale valuations.
Plot 1: 1.5 Storey – Plot Size – 1000 m2
Plot 2: 1.5 Storey – Plot Size – 1145 m2
Plot 3: 1.5 Storey – Plot Size – 1046 m2
Plot 4: 1.5 Storey – Plot Size – 1340 m2
Plot 5: 1.5 Storey – Plot Size – 725 m2
Plot 6: 1.5 Storey – Plot Size – 980 m2
Plot 7: 1.5 Storey – Plot Size – 878 m2
We would suggest that the price of the new build units could range from £325,000 - £400,000. These figures could increase should plot size increase or a paddock is included. We understand that all units will need to be 1.5 Storey.
We believe that all main services are located in the vicinity of the site; however, prospective purchasers should make their own enquiries with the appropriate service providers.

The traditional three/four-bedroom farmhouse, with outbuildings, will form the focal point of the development as it sits in the most prominent position of the site, at the leading edge of the plateau.
Once the site is developed, it has been proposed that the farmhouse will sit on a site of 2100m2. Displaying a splendid frontage, the farmhouse offers flexible accommodation, formed over a two-storey layout. In essence, the front of the property belies the spacious accommodation internally. The farmhouse requires a level of re-decoration, modernisation and upgrading. A prospective purchaser has a blank canvas to re-configure the farmhouse to their taste and style. Once completed, the property will offer well-proportioned room sizes with an abundance of living space, making this a super development opportunity for a builder/investor. The farmhouse could also be divided into smaller units or extended into the attached bothy to provide further accommodation (STPP).
