Situated just outside the historic market town of Marlborough, Wiltshire and within the North Wessex Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Poulton Farm Estate is being brought to the market by agents Woolley & Wallis with a guide price of £7.25 million
The farm is in a highly secluded and very quiet part of the Marlborough Downs with a modern 6 bedroom principle farmhouse, secondary accommodation, a range of steel framed farm buildings and about 451 acres (182.65 ha) of gently rolling chalk arable land and hardwood woodland.
The farmhouse was built to a high standard in 2008 and sits at the end of a mile long private drive. The 6 bedroom beautifully proportioned property boasts unspoilt views outwards over the farmland and surrounding countryside.
There is good quality 3 bedroom secondary accommodation which could be used for family, staff or holiday accommodation.
The farm is within a ring fence and has free draining fertile loamy soils over chalk. The undulating fields are well suited to large modern agricultural machinery and equipment. The arable cropping is in a strict rotation, to high management standards and has consistently produced strong yields.
The modern steel framed farm buildings extend to about 21,500 sq ft and include a 1,000T grain store and drier together with a useful 6 bay clear span building which has been used for beef production but has potential for a variety of alternative uses including equestrian, subject to planning.
There is a useful family shoot which could be further developed and the woodland, with its carpet of bluebells in the spring, is a haven for wildlife.
Woolley & Wallis Partner Richard Nocton said “ It is not often a farm of this character and quality come up for sale. The very private position and its close proximity to excellent facilities are a rare combination. This represents an ideal opportunity to acquire a top quality arable farm with a large principal house on the Marlborough Downs”.
He went on to say “There is the potential for the farm to be used for equestrian purposes if required and there is easy access to the M4, London as well as to the west country.”
