Farm with development potential

Northumberland farm with potential for development comes to market for £2.95m

Low Barton Farm, an outstanding 150 acres Northumberland residential farm with potential for development has come to market for £2,950,000.

The farm, featuring a farmhouse, two cottages and an excellent range of farm buildings all within a ring fence, and which has southerly views, lies on the A697 – the Newcastle to Edinburgh Road – close to Whittingham Village on the north bank of the River Aln.

The fully refurbished traditional stone farmhouse has two reception rooms, five bedrooms and three bathrooms while the farm also includes a three bedroom bungalow and traditional two bedroom stone cottage featuring both solar PV and solar thermal renewable energy systems.

The roof mounted Solar PV and Solar Thermal provides efficient green energy to the cottage, with excess electricity exported to the grid with a Feed in Tariff.

John Coleman, who heads up GSC Grays Specialist Farm and Country House Agency, said  “This is an exceptional opportunity to own a Northumberland farm that lies on the north bank of the River Aln between Northumberland’s National Park and the beautiful coastline.

“Considerable work to fully refurbish Low Barton Farmhouse and the Cottage has already been undertaken along with the construction of a new grain store and the farm still offers significant scope for potential development.”

The new grain store, with approximately 700 tonnes of storage, is part of an excellent range of modern and traditional farm buildings with machinery stores, workshops, and barns.

The 151.39 acres is Grade 3 farmland which has traditionally been in arable production is currently sown to grass to restore fertility while the property also includes sporting rights and fishing rights on the River Aln.
