Lot B - Poole Farmhouse, Leighterton, Tetbury - For Sale by Informal Tender with offers to be received by Noon Thursday 4th July 2024.

Bruton Knowles is deligthed to bring to the market the unique Poole Farmhouse in the Cotswold village of Leighterton, near both Tetbury and Westonbirt/Highgrove. The vacant farmhouse (Lot B) is being marketed alongside the farmyard and outbuildings, which are offered as a separate lot (Lot A), and which benefit from planning permission for a high quality and low density residential development scheme of 3 detached dwellings and a Cotswold stone barn conversion (demolition of farm buildings). A photomontage of the proposed development is included at the end of this brochure. Offers are invited for the farmhouse in isolation or combined with the adjacent development land.

Poole Farmhouse comprises a historic and substantial dwelling, predominantly Cotswold stone but with extensions. With an array of period features throughout, the property offers a unique opportunity for refurbishment and reconfiguration to create a singular family residence. Constructed over two storeys with stone elevations under a pitched tiled roof, the period features include a studded door, entrance hall with coat of arms, double tunnelled staircare, stone mullion windows, stone quoins and feature chimney stacks. Extending to an approximate 3,014sqft (280sqm), it sits in a private plot of approxiately 0.81 acres (0.32Ha), which is currently split as a garden and two small paddocks. The property is accessed via a private driveway with parking, and a path from the front door leading towards the village, via the village duck pond.

Poole Farmhouse is located to the southern edge of the Cotswold village of Leighterton, a rural, Gloucestershire settlement, close to the market towns (and supermarkets, cafes, restaurants and boutique shops) of Tetbury, Malmesbury, Wotton-under-Edge, Nailsworth and Chipping Sodbury. It supports a primary school, well regarded public house, farm shop, church and duck pond (which Poole Farm overlooks). It is a short distance from the A46, locating it conveniently for connection to the M4 and Bristol. Kemble Station, with direct London Paddington trains, is 12 miles to the east. Nearby is the village of Westonbirt, with its world renowned arboretum, Beaufort Polo Club, public school, and golf course. A short (3.5 mile) drive along the A46 leads to Calcot Manor & Spa, which includes a private membership gym and swimming pool.

The property benefits from mains electricity and water, with an oil fired boiler providing central heating and septic tank drainage. We have not carried out any tests in this regard and purchasers are advised to undertake their own due dilligence as to the condition of services on site.

The availability of this farmhouse is due to the intended residential redevelopment of the adjacent farm yard, which is being marketed for sale alongside (Lot A). The adjoining development will comprise a premium cul de sac scheme of three large Cotswold stone detached houses and a Cotswold stone barn conversion. All existing modern agricultural buildings are to be demolished. The property is located within the Cotswold District and is situated in both the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and the Leighterton Conservation Area.

EPC Rating G 15.

The property is For Sale by way of Informal Tender, which will require all offers to be received by Noon on Thursday 4th July 2024. The vendor will not review and respond to any offers prior to this date.
