320-acre Cumbrian Livestock Farm by Private Treaty rather than Auction
We are marketing a superb 319.43 acre livestock farm, Westnewton Hall, located near Aspatria in West Cumbria. Previously scheduled for auction, given the rules now in place for social-distancing, the farm will now be sold by private treaty with all offer submissions to be made by 12 noon on Wednesday 15th April 2020.
This high-quality stock rearing farm with very high quality land suitable for growing a range of crops benefits from a comprehensive and extensive range of modern farm buildings and a Grade II Listed seven-bedroom farmhouse.
With an overall guide price £2,750,000, Westnewton Hall is available as a whole or in three lots.
Lot 1 with a guide price of £140,000 consists of a single field enclosure extending to 15.20 acres (6.15ha).
Lot 2 with a guide price of £605,000, includes three field enclosures extending to 54.91 acres.
Lot 3 with a guide price of £2,005,000, consists of 246.70 ringfenced acres of excellent agricultural land and includes the farmhouse and farm steading.
Commenting on the quality of Westnewton Hall Farm and its change from auction to private treaty Thomas Armstrong, Chartered Surveyor and Director of H&H Land & Estates said:
“We would like to inform interested parties that following Government guidelines in light of the Covid-19 lockdown, we have made the decision to remove this farm from auction and turn it into a private treaty sale to enable all safety precautions to be put in place.
“Aside of the situation we find ourselves in currently, we would like to emphasise that this is a rare opportunity to purchase a substantial stock farm with significant acreage as well as a large farmhouse. It provides tremendous potential for a farmer looking to expand or take on a well-established enterprise with excellent mowing/grazing and cropping land capable of growing a wide range of arable crops.”
