4 Bedroom Farm For Sale
Lodge Farm comprises a principle stone built farmhouse with annexe in need of complete renovation together with a range of modern farm buildings with approx 20 acres of pasture.
Lodge Farm is approached down a long private driveway giving immense privacy to the property. There is a wide grass verge on either side and the drive curves slightly, hiding the farmstead from the highway. Whilst the farmhouse, annexe and farm buildings all require modernisation and renovation, the farm represents a wonderful opportunity for a buyer to put their own stamp and character on the property.
The farmhouse, which is in need of total renovation, is an attractive Cotswold stone-built property under a clay tile roof. Internally there is an entrance hall and Wc, a dining and sitting room plus a kitchen with rear doorway. Upstairs there is a master bedroom, two further double bedrooms, a family bathroom and a single bedroom. There are stairs up to the boarded attic which could provide, if required, a further bedroom (subject to planning)
Adjoining the farmhouse is a single storey stone built one-bedroom dwelling with a living room, kitchen, bathroom and store area.
The garden is primarily laid to lawn and a number of shrubs and flowers are growing around the house and annexe.
Lodge Farm lies in an enviable position in Brinkworth just south of the B4042 between Royal Wootton Bassett and Malmesbury. Brinkworth is a popular village with a range of local amenities including a primary school, village hall and the Three Crowns public house. The property is well served for access to M4 Junction 16 (7 miles) and railway station at Swindon (12 miles) for fast service to London (London Paddington 52 minutes). The market towns of Royal Wootton Bassett, Chippenham and Malmesbury all offer a good range of commercial, educational, shopping and recreational services.
There are an extensive range of modern and traditional stone-built farm buildings extending to approximately 28,000 sq. ft. (2580 m2) arranged around a series of hardcore and concrete yards which have been primarily used for housing and feeding a beef suckler herd. The buildings have plenty of potential for a range of alternative uses (subject to planning) however the majority of buildings are currently in poor physical condition.
The land extends to about 17.05 acres (6.90 ha) of mainly level good quality permanent pasture. The ground has been previously managed to a high standard and is divided into three useful sized fields and two smaller paddocks and a parcel of scrub woodland, all within a ring fence. The soil is a productive fertile loam and capable of producing heavy crops of grass for hay and silage.
A further 200 acres of adjoining tenanted agricultural land may be available by separate negotiation.
