youngsRPS Launch two new North of England ‘Starter Farms’ to the market

With the predictions of the price of farmland continuing to rise, now is the perfect opportunity for those waiting on the side lines to jump into the rural property market explains Tom Whitehead, Associate Director, Rural Chartered Surveyor with youngsRPS.

“Both Alborough Moor Farm in Marton Cum Grafton near York and Pilmour House Farm in Butterwick near Sedgefield are perfectly suited to operate as small farms (or for those purchasing their first farming business) or as an equestrian property. Both sites have family farmhouses and several agricultural buildings with scope for further development”, explains Tom.

Aldborough Moor Farm, which has a guide price of £1,500,000 (in total), presents a truly scarce opportunity to acquire a well-equipped compact arable and livestock farm within a sought-after position within the Vale of York. The farm, which comes to around 32.45 hectares (80.18 acres), includes a fully modernised three bedroomed farmhouse ready to move in to, versatile portal framed general purpose & livestock buildings, productive arable land and well fenced paddocks and meadow land.

Pilmour House Farm, extends to approximately 69.55 acres (28.14 hectares), is for sale as a whole or in two lots by Private Treaty and includes 3 bedroom detached farmhouse, range of useful outbuildings and large Garden.

Joanne Metcalfe, Associate Director, and leading agent for the sale of Pilmour House Farm states, “This is an excellent opportunity to purchase a ring-fenced arable farm to the east of Sedgefield. The farms’ accessible location with road links via the A689 to the A19 at Wolviston, and the A1(M) at Bradbury makes it suitable for both an agriculture and equestrian purposes.

At a time when property stock is still low, it is refreshing to see the market become more lively and bring these two great properties to the market. We would encourage any interested parties to contact us immediately.”
