We are instructed to set a Closing Date on Briscoe Farm and Land at Booze Wood for Best and Final Offers with Proof of Funds by 5pm Friday 9th September 2016.

Please note that our clients are open to splitting Lot 1 into smaller areas.  We can confirm that offers will be welcomed for parts of Lot 1 including the farmhouse and buildings if so desired


Lot 1: Briscoe Farm. Guide Price £400,000
Briscoe Farm consists of a four bedroom, detached traditional farmhouse under stone roof occupying a pleasant south facing position overlooking open countryside within Baldersdale. The property is accompanied by a range of modern and traditional agricultural buildings and approximately 42.59 acres of grassland. The farm is located in an area which is renowned for its livestock production. Nearby, Middleton in Teesdale mart provides an accessible outlet for the sale of such livestock.

The farmhouse would require renovation to become habitable. However, the property offers a fantastic opportunity for a development project to provide a desirable, secluded lifestyle property, subject to the necessary consents. Externally there is a range of traditional and modern farm buildings. The traditional farm buildings are located to the rear of the farmhouse located within a courtyard and may be suitable for conversion subject to the relevant consents. The land included within Lot 1 is on a gentle south facing slope and provides productive and useful grazing land, with some fields also being mowable. Fishing rights are included in the sale for the right to fish on the southern section of the River Balder.

Lot 2: Land South of Briscoe Farm. Guide Price £210,000
45.96 acres of grassland in seven enclosures, with the majority being suitable for grazing only; however, some parcels to the south would be suitable for mowing.

Lot 3: Land at Booze Wood. Guide Price £125,000
The Land at Booze Wood consists of 24.66 acres of grassland within seven enclosures, most of which would be suitable for mowing. All of the land would be grazable. Also included is a traditional stone barn which may be suitable for conversion subject to the necessary consents.

Lot 1 is accessed by means of a short track across Cotherstone Moor with a right of access that is shared with East Briscoe Cottages. Lots 2 & 3 are accessed from public roads with excellent gated access points.

The land has been registered for Basic Payment Scheme purposes, and the relevant SDA entitlements required for the eligible land are included in the sale at the Purchaser’s discretion. H&H Land and Property will conduct the transfer of the entitlements at £150 + VAT per transfer, payable by the Purchaser.
