For sale: An outstanding opportunity to acquire a first class mixed farm in Oxfordshire

Home and Lower Farms form one continuous block of farmland extending to over 1,400 acres, located in the attractive upper Thames Valley in Oxfordshire. The farms spread out from Kelmscott, beside the River Thames in the south, to the popular village of Langford in the north.

The heart of the farms lies at Home Farm in Kelmscott comprising a period Cotswold stone farmhouse set on the edge of the village, complete with a large number of traditional stone farm buildings, and more modern grain stores and livestock accommodation.

There is considerable potential to update and modernise the farmhouse, as well as the opportunity to convert many of the farm buildings to a range of
alternative uses, subject to planning consent.

The land comprises some meadows and grazing land beside the River Thames, with the majority a mixture of productive Grade 2 and 3 arable land split into a number of large fields.

All of the land is well accessed from the public highway and some includes licences to abstract water for irrigation purposes.

There is a separate grain store included in the land at Lower Farm, which is situated close to Langford. Also within the sale is 4 Lower Farm Cottages; a charming semi-detached cottage set on the southern edge of Langford village.

Matthew Sudlow, Head of Strutt & Parker’s Estates & Farm Agency Department, said: “It is rare to see farms of over 1,000 acres come on to the market in any year in England, so the sale of Home & Lower Farms represents an exciting opportunity for buyers of large, commercial farmland in this marketplace.”

Will Whittaker, a Senior Associate Director in the national team, added: “Not only is the commercial size and nature of the farm attractive to land buyers, but the quaint village farmhouse and large number of buildings provide a lot of potential to create a special residential estate, whether as a whole or in parts.”

The farms are for sale as whole, at a guide price of £15,325,000, or in up to 12 lots by private treaty.
