We have launched to the market North Gill Farm, a 117 acre traditional north east livestock farm with large farmhouse and extensive farm buildings.

Lot 2, guided £260,000 includes, 51 acres of grassland, in four enclosures with most of the land suitable for mowing.

In this part of County Durham, farms with development potential such as this seldom come to the market, so it really is an extremely rare opportunity for interested parties. North Gill Farm has been a family run farm for generations and is now offered for sale due to a change in circumstances. The property is situated in a private setting, but is very accessible with convenient connections to nearby cities Durham and Newcastle-upon-Tyne.
Commenting on the launch of the sale of North Gill Farm, Tim Sedgewick, Rural Surveyor at H&H Land and Property, said: “The sellers have put an enormous amount of effort into this working farm which is particularly well presented and recommended for viewing.”
“We are currently experiencing strong demand for this type of property, offering both buildings and land, and expect to receive interest from a range of buyers both locally and nationally.”
The farm land, which benefits from mains or natural water supply, is suitable for grazing and mowing. The land has been registered for Basic Payment Scheme purposes, and the relevant SDA entitlements required for the eligible land may be available by separate negotiation.
The range of traditional and modern agricultural buildings includes a number of stone barns, lean to and a sheep shed. Some of the external buildings are in need of restoration and, subject to the necessary consents, may be suitable for development.
Surrounded by outstanding views, the south east facing, detached, traditional stone, four bedroom farmhouse is a blank canvas renovation project with exceptional potential due to its layout and spacious rooms. At ground level the farmhouse comprises a kitchen, dining room, lounge, large pantry and a utility room. On the first floor there are four large bedrooms and a bathroom.
North Gill Farm is being offered for sale by Private Treaty through the Durham office of H&H Land and Property. Viewing of the farmhouse and buildings is strictly by arrangement only. For further information please contact Tim Sedgewick on 0191 371 8530 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
