A compact grassland farm with two bedroom farmhouse, farmyard, manège and approximately 23 acres of permanent pasture as a whole or in 2 lots.


Situation
Meadow Farm is situated just outside the thriving village of Bramcote off the B4114. The farmhouse is approached via a private driveway and sits comfortably in a spacious plot which backs onto woodland.
Communications are excellent with the M69 some 10 minutes drive away allowing access to the M1, M6 and A5. Nuneaton has a full range of amenities, and a railway station with hourly trains running into London Euston , taking just over one hour. Birmingham International airport is also easily reached.
Bramcote Waters and Nuneaton golf clubs are both close by

Description
The Farmhouse which has been well maintained since it's construction in 1977 is now in need of some updating and offers great potential to extend, subject to the necessary consents. It sits well back from the B4114 on a private driveway, is surrounded by a large garden and backs onto an area of woodland.
The farmyard, which also has potential for development, subject to the necessary consents, comprises a range of serviceable brick, concrete and steel framed buildings, currently in need of some modernisation, is set in the middle of the farmland well away from the farmhouse. There is a manège to one end.
The grassland is arranged in a crescent shape around the former hospital site which has now been developed into a bespoke housing development in the centre of the property. The land is bordered by the Ashby de la Zouch canal on two sides.

Accommodation
Lot 1, coloured red on the plan.
The farmhouse is set back along a tarmac drive with a wide gravelled parking area for several vehicles, and is entered through a glazed porch to the hallway, with stairs to the first floor, and guest cloakroom off. The triple aspect sitting room is particularly bright with wonderful views across the gardens, stone fireplace and built in stone bar. There is also a snug overlooking the front parking area.
The kitchen/breakfast room sits at the back of the house with lovely views across the garden to the wood beyond. There is a dining area to one end and two ranges of fitted floor units, one with a double sink unit. Potterton Gas central heating boiler.
From the kitchen a door opens onto a rear passage with a good sized utility room off with sink unit and space for a washing machine. Beyond is a shower room with WC and basin. Also off the passage is a good sized games room with scope for uniting with the main house and conversion into additional accommodation, stpp.
On the first floor are two double bedrooms, the larger one facing east across the orchard area to the garden and woods beyond. The second bedroom faces west towards the canal,
with airing cupboard, and under eaves storage. The bathroom is between the two rooms at the top of the stairs and consists of wc, basin and bath, with window to the rear garden.

Outside
There is ample parking to the front of the house for several vehicles, and a single lean to timber garage. To the back is a wide, level lawned area with a concrete patio, post and rail fencing and pathway to the eastern façade of the house overlooking an orchard area with a small paddock beyond. This runs the length of the entrance drive and is flanked by a row of 9 Silver Birch trees.
Beyond the driveway is an L shaped paddock, through which the driveway continues before turning left to the farmyard. A second paddock runs up to the yard between the track and the canal.
The yard sits in the centre of the farmland, and comprises a range of serviceable brick, concrete and steel framed buildings, including a corrugated iron, steel framed barn and machinery store, a second similar structure and ranges of brick and concrete block pigpens and stables. Most are currently in need of some modernisation. There is a manège to one end of the yard.

Lot 2 coloured blue on the plan
The grassland which is generally level, is bounded on the outside by the canal, with stock proof wire or post and rail fencing. It is currently divided in to 3 well fenced fields, with access from the main entrance road leading to the housing.
