Sale of Cheshire Farm attracts interest for Young Stock Rearing and as a Dairy Farm

A productive south Cheshire livestock farm in a private yet extremely accessible location has an extensive range of traditional buildings, modern farm buildings, 5 bed farmhouse and 103.72 acres (41.97 hectares) of productive land.

 Whitesgates Farm near Malpas, south Cheshire is on the market with joint agents Rostons and Barbers with a guide price of £1.25 million.

 Substantial, traditional buildings with planning consent for conversion to 8 residential units are included within the sale, however the 103.72 acre (41.97 hectare) farm, formerly being a dairy farm and now a livestock farm, is already attracting substantial interest from farmers looking to secure a productive agricultural unit for use as a secondary young stock holding or for re-establishing a dairy holding.

“Whitegates Farm offers a huge degree of flexibility with the existing modern agricultural buildings and silage pits offering substantial animal housing with the benefit of all 103.72 acres (41.97 hectares) of land adjoining the main farmsteading.  The planning consent on the buildings will attract interest from developers, however the productive nature of the holding and the ability to create workers accommodation in the traditional buildings subject to a change of planning consent has meant agricultural purchasers are already showing a high level of interest in Whitegates Farm” says Johnjo Roberts of Rostons.

 The planning consent is subject to a Section 106 Agreement requiring that 4 of the residential units provide affordable housing, most of the 103.72 acres (41.97 hectares) is down to productive grass leys and forage maize.
