Plant nursery with development potential

Plant nursery with development potential comes to market

An established County Durham plant nursery with a three bedroom house, modern buildings, retail space and the potential for equestrian development, has come to market with a guide price of £975,000.

New Row Farm, situated between the market town of Wolsingham and the village of Tow Law, could provide scope for a wide range of potential farm business diversification opportunities, including a touring caravan site, farm shop / café or race yard facilities, subject to obtaining the necessary consents.

John Coleman, head of farm and land sales at GSC Grays said: “This is currently a successful local plant nursery business which is being sold following a restructure of the family business assets. It has an excellent infrastructure to support such a business enterprise which also lends itself to a wide variety of other rural business uses or as an equestrian set up.  We are expecting considerable interest in New Row Farm.”

The farm extends to just under 20 acres and comprises a stone built farmhouse, a range of traditional stone buildings, a yard and other buildings associated with the running of a commercial/retail plant nursery business.

There are about 9.70 acres of grassland paddocks while the commercial nursery area benefits from an extensive water irrigation system that is supplied by a private spring supply and three boreholes with numerous holding tanks.

The detached, two storey farmhouse. built of dressed stone, has three reception rooms and three bedrooms. A courtyard to the rear is enclosed on three sides adjoining a single storey link building and a two storey stone barn which incorporates the farm office, garaging and storage. The house has its own, private tarmac drive leading directly to the public road but also has the benefit of use of the commercial farm road.

The traditional farm buildings extend to approximately 3,640 sq. ft and offer scope for possible change of use for residential or commercial purposes, subject to necessary consents. In addition, there are a number of modern buildings, including a large steel-portal frame shed and secondary offices that are currently used to support the existing nursey business.

The farm’s commercial nursery area, with serviced polytunnel pitches, extends to approximately 6.63 acres (2.68 hectares) while the centrally local retail area has space for retail stock and car parking. This area is understood to have attained planning consent for commercial retail purposes.

New Row Farm has excellent access onto the A68 and A1 (M1) while Durham offers an East Coast line railway station with regular services to Newcastle, York, Edinburgh and London.
