Shetland Pony testimonial - August 3rd, 2015

‘At last year’s sale we were lucky enough to win the day’s show  champion Annwood Vector . May I say he is an absolute treasure, a real credit to his breeders and producers , and worth every pound we paid  for him. I doubt we could buy better anywhere .

Hill Farm, Boames Lane, Enborne, Newbury **UNDER OFFER** - June 15th, 2015

UNDER OFFER

1

GUIDE PRICE £1.85m

Rarely available in West Berkshire and within an hour’s  commute to London , a small farm comprising an attractive period farmhouse, a range of traditional and modern farm buildings and approximately 33.62 acres IN TOTAL.

Situation
Hill Farm is situated in a small lane in an attractive rural location just west of Newbury. Although surrounded by countryside it is an easy short drive to the town centre, mainline station and a range of good local and independent schools.
Newbury town offers a good selection of shops and department stores, including the Parkway retail development and John Lewis, with a supermarket and retail park to the south of the town. 8225574-exterior27-800-web
There are plenty of restaurants, cafés, public houses and leisure facilities, including Newbury Racecourse, the attractive Kennet & Avon canal, Vue cinema, Corn Exchange and Watermill theatres. There are arts and sports centres, health and golf clubs, a bowls club, museums and an outdoor market on Thursdays and Saturdays.
There are well regarded schools for all age groups and Newbury College, with its campus to the south of the town.
There is excellent access to the major road routes of A34 and M4 and the mainline rail station to London (Paddington).

Description
Hill Farm is an interesting and individual period farmhouse which has been well maintained over the years but is now in need of some updating. The property is not Listed and both the house and the buildings provide a wonderful opportunity for a buyer to extend and improve the property.8212990-exterior12-800-web
There are also, subject to consents, endless possibilities for the buildings to be converted to provide additional accommodation or buildings for leisure pursuits if required.
Although Hill Farm has run as a dairy farm for many years it would also be an ideal opportunity for an equestrian buyer looking to establish property with good riding facilities.

Outside
Surrounding the house is an area of formal garden beyond which there is a more natural orchard and an area which was once used for vegetables. 8212990-exterior21-800-webThe range of traditional and modern buildings are all located to one side of the house and have the advantage of a separate access directly from the lane. The land is a particular feature of Hill Farm as it is all grassed and naturally undulating and also as the property is situated on a hill there are
lovely long views over the surrounding countryside.

Additional Information
Tenure – Freehold
Council Tax – Band G

For further information or to make an appointment to view please contact either Chris Boreham or Sue Wheeler via email or ‘phone +44 (0) 118 950 8611

Directions to RG20 0JT
From Newbury take the A343 Andover Road out of town and at the small double mini
roundabouts at the top of the hill bear right on to Essex Street. Continue on this road driving out of Newbury and after passing through some open countryside cross over the A34 take the first turning right into Boames Lane continue up the hill where the property will then be seen on the left hand side.

February 2015 Contractors Plant Sale Report - March 3rd, 2015

CONTRACTORS PLANT AND EQUIPMENT – READING AUCTION 12th FEBRUARY 2015

A very encouraging start to the new year despite the uncertain economy and world situation. As always entries were slow to pick up after Christmas, with the usual rush. Fortunately, the weather was kind and customers were out in force to compete for a yard packed full. A massive entry of generators created spirited bidding and trade was very brisk most of the way through. Customers were very keen on correct makes and late machines. Older equipment, and in particular engines, are proving harder to find new homes for. Certain vendors have BEAN warned but don’t listen! Despite the dip in the Euro, plenty of European customers were still in evidence. A 92% clearance and 58% going to foreign climes. (96% of generators!)
