Armitstead Barnett are delighted to offer Sandside Farm to the market. An impressive holding, it represents a rare opportunity for a purchaser to acquire a well equipped smallholding-style property in a delightful location offering excellent potential to the lifestyle, equine, agricultural and amenity purchaser. With land extending to approximately 27.95 acres (11.31 hectares) or thereabouts, an applicant would be able to finish the site to their own designs to create a functional holding.

The farm currently comprises of a part complete three bedroomed, detached farmhouse, modern agricultural building including stables, workshop with 3-phase electricity, large pond with fishing potential, yard area and grazing land.

With road frontage, and functional features, this site offers a huge amount of potential for a purchaser to use and operate for as an equestrian or smallholding-style property.

The farmhouse is well placed at the centre of holding and to the rear of the yard, enjoying open views East towards the Bowland Fells and West towards the coastline. The build of the property, following the grant of planning permission under application number 10/00618/FUL for ‘Erection of detached dwelling for use in association with equestrian stud farm’, was initiated but due to a change in personal circumstances the property currently remains unfinished. However, what work has been completed is to an excellent standard and much thought and attention has clearly been paid to the layout and design of the property. The resultant house affords wide open views of the surrounding landscape alongside generous living spaces.

The purchaser has the opportunity to complete the build to their own standards and specifications. With pitched and tiled roof and ‘diamond-dash’ exterior, the ground floor, benefitting from underfloor heating, comprises of hallway, WC, open plan kitchen/diner with windows to three elevations and living room. The first floor benefits from two double bedrooms with Jack and Jill bathroom, and master suite with walk-in wardrobe and en suite.

It should be noted that the planning permission for the residence contains an Agricultural Tie. Further details can be found in General Remarks as enclosed towards the end of this brochure. The house has not yet been signed off and therefore is not currently in a habitable condition.

Sandside Farm benefits from a large modern agricultural building of steel portal frame construction. Well presented and maintained, the multifunctional building would be suited to a variety of uses. Currently, it comprises of a open section with Yorkshire boarding to one side used to house machinery and equipment. Adjacent is the stable section, benefitting from 11 stables, a kitchenette and WC with shower. Beyond is further barn area previously used to house an indoor walker, but providing access to both the yard and the fields beyond. In total, these sections extend to approximately 685 m2.

The site also provides a workshop with mains water, 3-phase electricity and electric operated roller shutter door. This space further adds to the desirability of the property, and extends to approximately 132 m2.

The land in total extends to approximately 27.95 acres (11.31 hectares) or thereabouts, set within a ring fence as per the site plan enclosed within these sales particulars with the boundary shown in red. The land is level by nature and is well drained. The land is all down to permanent pasture, classified as Grade 3 under the DEFRA Agricultural Land Classification Maps, and comprises of four individual fields, primarily set surrounding the central yard. Access is provided both off Fluke Hall Lane and off Wheel Lane.

The large pond adjacent to the house, stocked with carp and koi, offers potential to be utilised as a fishing lake and adds additional appeal being both an attractive feature and adding real character and capability to the holding.

The property is set in a rural location, and yet easy access is provided to Pilling and Preesall Sands via the local network of foot paths and bridal ways. Whilst benefitting from local amenities at Pilling to include schools, churches, public houses and shops, more comprehensive amenities are provided at the historic City of Lancaster less than 25 minutes drive by car.

In a location that provides a rugged tranquillity, Sandside Farm affords the opportunity for a purchaser to run their own business in a stunning corner of rural Lancashire. Once complete, this site has all the makings of a successful equine business or smallholding pending any necessary planning consents.
