A mixed residential farm in the stunning Wensum Valley

Place Farm, Drayton extends to approximately 145.23 hectares (358.96 acres) in total. With its combination of arable land, grazing meadows with river frontage, residential property and farm buildings it provides an excellent opportunity for buyers looking to acquire a mixed residential farm with amenity and sporting appeal.

Whilst the farm is located within easy reach of Norwich, its situation running down into the Wensum Valley is idyllic and unspoilt. The grazing meadows and river are home to an abundance of wildlife and the woodland belts and plantations, many of which have been established by the current owners, add to the amenity interest of the farm. There is sporting potential with a successful family shoot having been run for many years.

The proximity to Norwich may provide an opportunity, subject to planning, to develop commercial uses at the farm and within the buildings. A number of agreements have been in place to broaden the income of the holding which a buyer may look to build on in the future.

The farm is offered for sale as a whole or in two lots. The land at Place Farm itself, forming lot one, is a compact block extending to approximately 98.45 hectares (243.27 acres) in total being a mixture of arable, grazing and woodland. The main Farmhouse and a second residential property, Ashtrees, are located here as well as the range of farm buildings.

Lot two, which is off lying slightly to the east, is the land at Church Farm, Old Costessey which is a further 46.82 hectares (115.68 acres) and is also a combination of arable land, woodland and grazing with river frontage.
