Matthew Peters reported high levels of interest in Portway House in Berrow near Malvern – with five separate lots snapped up in formal tenders.
He said: “The land amounting to some 80 acres in total made in excess of £10,000 per acre. We had considerable interest in the property which included a detached farmhouse and outbuildings plus assorted pasture and woodland.
“A lot of farmers have returned to the market and are buying. As well as being seen as a safe haven long term investment, cattle and sheep prices are holding up well at the moment.”
But Matthew Peters said the sale underlined the wide variations in agricultural land values between locations.
“Spring is the traditional time of the year to sell land and many farmers are looking to expand - if something comes up on their doorstep they are more willing to give it a go.”
Portway House is conveniently located near Junction 2 of the M50 linking to the A417 Gloucester to Ledbury Road.
Most of the land is traditional permanent pasture leading down to the Wynd Brook that
forms the western boundary.
There are attractive gardens to the front and rear with excellent westerly views
towards the Malvern Hills.
Farm buildings include a four-bay double span range of steel frame covered yards with part concrete block walls along with a three-bay steel frame fodder barn.
There is also a double range of four-bay Atcost reinforced concrete frame buildings, two with lean-to providing excellent storage facilities.
Matthew Peters concluded: “The agricultural market has been seriously undersupplied lately and with land values rocketing there is no shortage of people wanting to buy land in order to put estates back together.”
