Hanging Carr Farm is situated on Hurst Lane on the outskirts of the village of Auckley approximately five miles south east of Doncaster. Junction 3 of the M18 is approximately 4 miles distant to the west, which provides access to the national motorway network.

The property is a smallholding which extends to 20.10 acres (8.13 hectares) or thereabouts and comprises a three bedroom bungalow with three arable/grassland fields. The bungalow is detached brick, built in the 1950’s with a tiled roof, which is suitable for modernisation. It has the benefit of gas fired central heating and UPVC double glazing almost entirely throughout.

The property has a garden area of approximately 0.25 acre with mature trees and range of outbuildings to the rear and a lawned area to the front. Off road parking is available along with a single garage of prefabricated concrete construction. There are mains water, electricity and gas supplies. Drainage is to a septic tank.

The land is situated to the west and south west of the bungalow, as shown on the Site Plan. The land is classified as being Grade 3 on Sheet 103 of the Provisional Agricultural Land Classification Maps of England and Wales as historically published by the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food. The soils are identified by the Soil Survey of England and Wales as being from the “Newport 1” association, with their characteristics described as “deep well drained sandy and coarse loamy soils” and as suitable for “cereals, sugar beet and potatoes”.

The land comprises two arable fields (Lots 2 & 3) and a grass field (Lot 4). It is currently let under two short term Farm Business Tenancies due to expire on 30th September 2019. Access to Lot 1, the bungalow and Lot 2 is directly off Hurst Lane. Access to Lot 3 is off Hayfield Land and Lot 4 is accessed over a right of way off of the Great Yorkshire Way, as shown coloured brown on the Site Plan.

The arable land is registered on the Rural Payments Agency Rural Land Register and has been used to activate Basic Payment Scheme (BPS) entitlements. It is intended that there will be a permanent transfer of Normal Entitlements to the Purchaser(s) for the purpose of the BPS, as part of the agreed consideration, following completion. The outgoing tenant made a BPS claim for the 2019 season. A copy of the 2019 BP5 application form and relevant LPIS maps are available for inspection at the Selling Agents office by prior appointment or can be emailed out on request. Purchaser(s) should satisfy themselves as to the accuracy of the same. Any statement within these particulars is given in good faith but carries no warranty.

A copy of the full EPC is available at www.jhpickup.co.uk

A mains sewer crosses Lot 2 and Lot 3. There are wayleave agreements with Northern Powergrid (Yorkshire) Plc in respect of the overhead lines and associated poles crossing Lot 2 and Lot 3.

Sporting and Timber Rights are included where owned. A single Birch tree to the north and the group of trees to the south west of the bungalow (within Lot 1) are subject to a Tree Preservation Order. We are not aware of any public rights of way that cross the property.

The land is owned freehold and is being sold with the benefit of vacant possession on completion which will be after the expiration of the current Farm Business Tenancy on 30th September 2019, or when the current crops are cleared, if later.

Town and Country Planning - We understand that the original planning consent granted in the 1950’s was subject to a standard Agricultural Occupancy Condition. However a Local Authority search carried out by the Vendor’s solicitor on 17th May 2019 has no record of any condition for the period since 1st January 2004.

The land is offered for sale subject to a development clause whereby 50% of any uplift in value, in excess of its existing use value, is reserved to the Vendor for a period of 50 years as from the date of completion.
