An exciting opportunity to acquire an income producing investment with potential for significant rent increases and long term residential development potential (STPP). Located in an affluent and desirable area inside the M25, this former farm includes 17 industrial buildings and 1 large residential premises which take up just over 6 acres of the 115 acre site. At present there are 14 tenants occupying the site running various businesses, and a large detached residential bungalow measuring circa. 3,150 sqft; whilst the majority of the site is open fields and woodland. Of the 109 acres approximately 70% is open fields and 30% woodland. Whilst the current income is in the region of £170,000pa a number of the units are under-let, some are vacant and planning consent exists for one further unit to be built. It is our opinion that the site offers potential through active management for this income to be significantly increased. The site may be suitable for development, and would appear to offer potential as a large residential site (subject to planning permission).
