BARNKIN FARMHOUSE, BUILDINGS AND APPROXIMATELY 40 ACRES OF LAND
The original traditional farmhouse is two storey and of stone and lime construction under a timber framed slate covered roof, while the extensions are assumed to be brick or concrete block with similar roof structures. In its current configuration the farmhouse extends to approximately 232m2 and provides 4 bedrooms, WC with shower, sitting room, further reception room/games room, office, dining room, kitchen, family bathroom and laundry/utility room.
The farm buildings are a mixture of both modern and traditional construction of varying ages, proportions, uses and condition. Planning permission was previously obtained for the traditional stone and lime buildings for a change of use alteration and extension to form up to 9 dwellings.
The land extends to approximately 40.96 Acres (16.57 Ha) and is split between three main enclosures shown shaded pink on the sale plan, with one field either side of the primary access to the farmhouse being considered arable quality and the remaining larger field beyond being rougher grazings.
The land is designated by the land classification for agriculture scale (LCA) as primarily grade 3.1 with a small area of grade 3.2 to the north of the farmhouse and yard and primarily grade 4.2 and then 6.2 as it progresses westward from the house towards Craggs Moss.
Grade 3.1 land is regarded as being capable of producing consistently high yields of a narrow range of crops and/or moderate yields of a wider range, while grade 3.2 is capable of average production though high yields of barley, oats and grass can be obtained, grass leys being common across both.
Grade 4.2 is regarded as capable of producing a narrow range of crops, primarily on grassland with short arable breaks of forage crops while 6.3 is regarded as only capable of use as rough grazings.
Strictly by appointment with the Selling Agent. Given the potential hazards of a working farm, we request you take care when viewing the property, especially around the farm buildings.
