Set in approx. 17 acres, a detached three bedroom bungalow (A.O.C.) with extensive outbuildings and income potential, in a popular and accessible location within the New Forest National Park

Situated between Totton and Lyndhurst. Lyndhurst serves as the administrative capital of the New Forest, it is a popular tourist attraction with many independent shops, galleries, museums, public houses and hotels whilst nearby Totton is also a popular New Forest town situated on the River Test again with an extensive range of amenities and facilities. Nearby Southampton is also readily accessible with its extensive and renowned shopping centre. The M27 / M3 and rail services via Totton or Ashurst stations makes the area popular with commuters.

We understand that the bungalow at Petlake Farm was built subject to an Agricultural Condition of Occupancy which in part states that the occupier of the dwelling must be solely or mainly employed or last employed in agriculture or forestry or dependants thereof.

The current owners use the property as an alpaca farm with farm shop and alpaca walking, etc. The property is not being sold as a going concern however the vendors have indicated that in principle, they would be happy to assist anyone wishing to continue with the business. The property might also suit other enterprises based around agriculture with perhaps a café, etc based around an agricultural business. There may also be scope for conversion of one of the barns to some sort of holiday accommodation subject to the necessary planning permissions being obtained.

OUTSIDE, OUTBUILDINGS & LAND

The property is approached off the main road via a private access and driveway leading past the bungalow and up to an arrival yard area providing parking and turning facilities. There are lawned gardens and grounds around the bungalow generally, part enclosed by post and rail fencing and with a number of trees and shrubs. Off the arrival yard there are the following outbuildings with approx. sizes:

Garage 18’9 x 14’3 (about 5.7m x 4.4m) with light and power, double doors to front

Yard Area adjacent

Run of Three Loose Boxes each approx. 14’4 x 10’ (about 4.4m x 3m) with light and power

Opposite the stable yard is an Agricultural Building c. 60’ x 35’ (about 18.4m x 10.7m) to the main part with internal aisles and pens utilised for stock rearing and with a large covered adjacent side area. To the end of this building there is also the Office c. 15’ x 8’7 (about 4.6m x 2.6m) with light and power and a room utilised as a Farm Shop c. 19’5 x 9’6 (about 5.9m x 2.9m) with window and door to office. There is also a useful Galvanised Iron Shed c. 14’3 x 12’2 (about 4.4m x 3.6m) with light and power. Beyond this main building is a Multipurpose Barn c.52’ x 30’ (about 15.9m x 9.2m) (overall) of steel stanchion and sleeper construction with Monopitch Three Bay Tractor Store c. 45’ x 30’ (about 13.7m x 9.2m). There is a Further Four Bay Open Hay Barn c. 60’ x 20(about 18.4m x 6.1m)

From the far end of the yard there is access out over a small bridge onto the land.

The Land is a particularly nice feature of this property and at present is divided into approx. eight enclosures with some smaller stock enclosures beyond the outbuildings, and some larger paddock areas accessed via a farm track way off the arrival yard. The land is mainly enclosed by a mixture of stock fencing and hedging which the vendors have paid particular attention to in view of their stock animals and there are a number of water troughs with mains water supply on the land. There is also a very lovely feature of this property which is an area of Maturing Oak Woodland which is managed by the vendors and again might well be utilised in conjunction with the farming enterprise at the property or perhaps diversification via woodland management courses, etc.

We understand there is an uplift clause on the land in favour of a previous owner which we understand would be activated by two or more further dwellings being given permission for on the land although it is thought that being within the New Forest District National Park this would be extremely unlikely in the foreseeable future.
