About this property

The sale of High Bracken Hill provides a unique opportunity for a purchaser to acquire a ring fenced and conveniently sized block of productive agricultural land. The land is ideally located lying within the heart of the Tyne Valley and in a renowned livestock rearing area.

The land consists of approximately 40.94 ha (101.18 acres) of grassland of which 12.36 ha (30.54 acres) has been recently reseeded. This temporary grassland forms part of the approximately 27.90 ha (68.94 acres) of mowable land, the amount of which highlights the productive capabilities of the land.

In addition to the grassland there is a strip of under grazed woodland which provides useful shelter and amenity value.

Central to the land is a semi redundant farm steading, covering a GIA floor area of 230 m². The steading mainly consists of traditional stone buildings which potentially lend themselves to a possible residential conversion. To this effect professional plans have been drawn up highlighting how a comfortable four bedroomed house could be achievable.
