|Highlands Farm, Ripley, Woking, Surrey, GU23 6EW|
|½ a mile from the villages of Ripley and Send Marsh, 5 miles from Woking and Guildford and 3 miles from Junction 10 of the M25|
|For Sale by Tender|
|A Building Plot, Farmland & buildings known as Highlands Farm, as a whole or in up to 3 Lots|
Highlands Farm is very conveniently situated, lying between the villages of Ripley and Send Marsh, just off the A3, and about 3 miles south west of Junction 10 of the M25. The market town of Woking is 5 miles to the north west and the county town of Guildford is also about 5 miles away, to the south west.
|Communications are excellent, not only by road but also by rail, there being mainline stations at Guildford and Woking. There is also a regular bus service to both towns.|
Highlands Farm comprises in total about 53 acres (21.45 hectares) of predominately pasture land together with associated buildings and a plot with planning permission to build a detached house. All 3 Lots adjoin and thus provide the potential to create a small farm in a very convenient and much sought-after location, where any significant amount of land is rarely available to purchase. Equally however the Lots can be purchased separately, giving the opportunity to acquire a plot to build a house and 2 smaller more affordable parcels of grazing land.
|Lot 1 (coloured red on the plan) Guide Price £250,000
A plot of about 0.35 of an acre in total, comprising a level rectangular shaped piece of land running east from Send Marsh Lane to a stream that runs along the eastern boundary, and including the track that runs parallel to it. A public footpath runs along the track, and the Environment Agency also has a right of access along it to the stream.
On the 24th February 2011 planning permission was granted by Guildford Borough Council for the erection of a 2 storey detached dwelling with detached garage (reference 10/P/02210). The gross external floor area of the proposed house is approximately 160 square metres. Details of the application may be viewed on the Council’s website at www.guildford.gov.uk/planning. Further information is also available from the Agents, including a report on compliance with Condition 13 of the grant of planning permission.
The approximate position of the boundaries of the plot is edged in red on the plan attached to these particulars of sale.
Please note that although the application is for a 4 bedroom house the amended plans show a 3 bedroom house, for which permission was granted.
|Lot 2 (coloured blue on the plan) Guide Price £300,000
A block of about 23 acres (9.3 hectares) of pasture land, roughly in the middle of which is a group of buildings. Access to the land and buildings is along a track leading from Portsmouth Road, to the north east (unless the buyer of Lot 1 is also the buyer of Lot 2 in which case access may also be along the track off Send Marsh Road if desired). The track runs through the land, past the buildings. The buyer of Lot 3 will have a right of access over the part of the track as shown coloured brown on the plan. The land is bordered by a stream along the west side, whilst there are predominately woods along the southern and eastern boundaries. To the north is Lot 3. There are a number of paddocks bordering the stream to the west, whilst the remainder of the land is in larger fields. The soil is predominately a sandy loam. It is classified Grade 3 on Agricultural Land Classification map for England & Wales.
