One of the top dairy facilities in the Berkeley Vale has been placed on the market with Bruton Knowles.
Grade II Listed Oakey Farm near Moreton Valence is a six-bedroom farmhouse surrounded by 259 acres of prime Gloucestershire arable, pasture and woodland.
On the market with a guide price of £3,450,000, Oakey Farm dates from the 15th Century and retains many period features.
Ben Compton from Bruton Knowles’ Gloucester office said it was one of the finest working farms in the Vale.
“The spacious farmhouse is surrounded by gardens on two sides some way from the dairy facilities – it offers ample opportunity to extend into the annexe or the traditional farm buildings attached.
“There are two additional homes – Oak Cottage, a two-bedroom cottage off the South Wing and Quercus, a four bedroom farm manager’s house with its own garden and views over the Gloucestershire and Sharpness Canal which is subject to an Agricultural Occupancy Condition.
“To round off the facilities there is a heated swimming pool.”
Ben Compton said the working dairy farm also has a range of outbuildings that could lend themselves to a variety of alternative uses including equestrian, subject to the usual permissions.
“The working element is some distance from the main farmhouse which makes it ideal to run in hand or let out to provide an income.”
Just over a mile from the village of Epney and eight miles from Gloucester, Oakey Farm includes a fifty point rotary parlour, a covered collecting yard, livestock, feed and machinery housing, silage clamp and large slurry lagoon.
The total internal area including farmhouse, attic, garage, workshop, store and cottage extends to over 6,000 square feet.
Ben Compton concluded: “With a wealth of home comforts and endless opportunities to extend the business into an equestrian facility or convert outbuildings to holiday lets – the sky is the limit at Oakey Farm.”
