OUTSIDE, OUTBUILDINGS & LAND
The property is approached off the no through road via a long driveway which is shared with the original Vowley Farmhouse beyond.
We understand that part of the driveway is also a bridleway that then turns left before the house and then crosses over onto adjoining farmland. There are parking areas immediately to the front of the farmhouse, and to the rear there is a garden area with a number of raised growing beds, a summer house and greenhouse.
There are lovely views to both the front and rear of the farmhouse over the surrounding countryside and to the Marlborough Downs.
Beyond the farmhouse there is an enclosed STOCK COLLECTING YARD and beyond this lies the BUILDING COMPLEX comprising THREE MAIN BARNS AND COVERED YARD AREAS.
The outbuildings with approximate sizes are as follows:
BUILDING ONE 90’ x 30’ (about 27.4m x 9.2m) the front part of this building was utilised as the FARM SHOP with initial sales room and cutting room Also contained within this building are BLOCK PENS with handling gates, a FARM WORKSHOP and THREE STORE ROOMS
BUILDING TWO 90’ x 45’ (about 27.4m x 13.7m) clearspan, utilised for loose housing cattle
L SHAPED COVERED YARD 75’ x 60’ (about 22.9m x 18.4m) avr. width 13’ (about 4m)
BUILDING THREE 120’ x 45’ (about 36.8m x 13.7m) formerly utilised for stock housing and incorporating an open covered store adjoining the rear stock yard
Opposite this range of buildings there is a:
THREE BAY MULTI-PURPOSE BARN 45’ x 20’ (about 13.7m x 6.1m)
Within the front paddock opposite the farmhouse there is also a TIMBER POULTRY HOUSE
There is also an OPEN POLE BARN on the land
The land is a particularly good feature of this property and comprises virtually level productive pastureland arranged in TEN MAIN FIELDS including one area of IMMATURE WOODLAND. We are informed by the vendors that all fields have a water supply and there are a number of mature trees on the property as well as a good deal of thick hedging. There is a footpath crossing part of the land. We are informed the farm is not currently registered for Single Farm Payment Scheme but it is registered with the Rural Land Registry through the Rural Payments Agency and has its own unique holding number, flock number and herd number for the livestock with DEFRA.
IN ALL APPROX. 110 ACRES (About 44 Hectares)

Just a quick thank you to you and your company for the help we received from you all. Every conversation with staff members was pleasant and caring. We will definitely recommend Rural Scene to others.
We just wanted to pass on our enormous thanks for the hard work you and your company put into selling our property and helping with the purchase of this house. We also want to thank you for your unfailing support, encouragement and cheerfulness through what was, for us, a very stressful time
I just wanted to pass on my thanks for all your tremendous work during the sale of our property. It's been a bit of a rollercoaster at times but you did a great job in lining up the buyers for us. From the get-go I've felt we're in good hand with Rural Scene. Estate agents don't always get the best press but I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to anyone selling their smallholding.
I felt I must write to you both to express my gratitude for the work Abi Rhodes has done on the sale of M......... From the initial meeting she has demonstrated expert knowledge in our type of property that had just been lacking from other agents and filled us with confidence. Throughout the marketing and sale she has been thoroughly professional yet friendly in dealing with the 77 viewings we had to undertake to get to the final sale. Some of the people as we have neared the sale have frankly been rude and in some cases unpleasant and Abi has dealt with them all and shielded us from it completely. She has worked tirelessly to get us finally to completion. I would not hesitate in recommending your company to anyone looking to market the properties you work with.
I really wanted to thank everyone at Rural Scene for the brilliant service you all gave during the sale of our farm. Everyone I spoke to was so polite and couldn't have been more helpful. Even when things got a bit stressful you sorted it all out for us. We will certainly recommend you to friends and should we move again, we will definitely use Rural scene again.
