Boarsney Farm extends in total to about 274.14 acres comprising a large block of in hand woodland and a mix of arable and grass land, modern and traditional farm buildings and a three-bedroom farm cottage, subject to a secure Agricultural Holdings Act tenancy. The semi-detached cottage with about 1500 sq. ft. of accommodation is arranged over three floors, comprising three bedrooms, a bathroom, living room, kitchen/dining room and a utility/boot room. There is off road parking to the front of the cottage and an attached garage and a useful sized garden with access to a large pond.
The land is found in two blocks; 150.6 acres to the north of the Bodiam Road and to the south side of the road, a further 69.48 acres of pasture beyond the farm buildings complex. The land is listed as Grade 3 Agricultural Land, in a low flood risk area and a Nitrate Vulnerable Zone. The soil is made up of a mixture of slowly permeable, seasonally wet, slightly acid but base-rich loamy and clayey soils with impeded drainage. The farm buildings are mostly set around a concrete yard area, the site plan within these particulars giving measurements and approximate locations of the buildings and their uses. These include two cattle sheds, a Dutch Barn, a farm store, a farm office/old dairy and traditional Sussex Barn, with scope for improvement and further development.
The in-hand woodlands extend to approximately 54.06 acres of ancient and semi-natural woodland, subject to a Woodland Grant Scheme (WGS) managed by English Woodlands.
The AHA tenancy has been surrendered and re-granted under s.4(1)(g) of the ATA 1995, meaning that the agricultural land would currently qualify for 100% Agricultural Property Relief (APR).
