Situated in a secluded rural setting, the farm is nevertheless within commuting distance of Newcastle upon Tyne and Hexham. The property includes a very attractive traditional farmhouse, an extensive range of outbuildings, a separate cottage and about 428 acres of land.
Tom Jenks, who is handling the sale of the property on behalf of Galbraith, said:
This is an excellent opportunity to acquire a productive stock farm, which is likely to attract a wide range of potential purchasers. The farmhouse is Grade II listed and constructed of traditional Northumbrian stone, with a slate roof, a southerly aspect and lovely outlooks to the south.
The land is classified as Grade 3, extending to 428 acres, of which about 47 acres are in arable production with woodland of about six acres and the remainder down to grass. In recent years the farm has produced high quality livestock and the fields are all fenced and accessible from internal farm tracks and from the public highway. In recent years the farm has been managed in conjunction with other farms under the same management; the existing farming arrangements are due to terminate in November 2019.
Above all the situation of Fell House Farm is very appealing. This is an area which is steeped in agricultural and rural tradition and is well known for producing high quality livestock. However, it is only 12 miles from the attractive market town of Hexham and 25 miles from Newcastle upon Tyne, offering the convenience of a very accessible location while still in a wonderful rural area.
Fell House Cottage is also Grade II listed and built of traditional stone, offering two bedrooms and two reception rooms. The cottage is currently let to a tenant.
The traditional and modern agricultural buildings at Fell House Farm include a Dutch barn, livestock handling pens, a bull pen, lambing shed, traditional gingang, workshops and stores. Some of the outbuildings may offer potential for further development, subject to the necessary planning consents.
Fell House Farm is for sale through Galbraith, as a whole for offers over £2,250,000 or in five separate lots. Further details available from the agent.
