Up for auction with a guide price which wouldn’t get you a two-bedroom apartment in Bath or Cheltenham is Dinchall Farm near Ledbury.
With upwards of 5,500 sq ft of space including an astonishing eight bedrooms, the Grade II listed farmhouse dates from the early 17th century and comes with 18 and a half acres of land – just right for the lifestyle buyer.
Matthew Peters from Bruton Knowles will auction the traditional red brick farm by public auction on Wednesday November 1 at the Farmers Club, Sandhurst Lane, Gloucester.
The guide price is £650,000.
Matthew said: “Ambitious lifestyle buyers will need to completely refurbish this detached Grade II Listed farmhouse as it is in need of complete modernisation.
“There is a range of traditional and modern farm buildings which could be converted for alternative uses offering a rare opportunity to acquire a well located property requiring complete modernisation.”
The grounds include old orchards, a walled garden and even a small lake.
The farm buildings include an L–shaped stable block, traditional and modern barns with further stable facilities and a former cow shed.
The land is in three paddocks either side of the house and offers the potential for grazing or fodder for livestock.
Dinchall Farm is on the B4216 between Dymock and Ledbury and is within an easy drive of the M50, Ledbury, Ross-on-Wye and Hereford.
“Once complete, the new owners will have a superb family home. The stable block will also be of interest to equestrian families.”
