Agents Batcheller Monkhouse are selling Rocks Farm for between £1.25 and £1.35 million.
The property is owned by Gerald Winter who is well known in the area for his expertise with horse ploughing and regularly competes at ploughing matches. He originally used a pair of Shires but is now using Percherons. He breeds Shires at Rocks Farm.
Apart from the farmhouse, there is a separate converted oast house and barn providing either two holiday lets or one let and good ancillary accommodation.
There is a range of farm buildings extending in total to about 10,000 square feet and includes: a four bay steel portal framed cattle yard with adjoining open fronted machinery store; an open fronted pole barn; a portal framed barn incorporating nine stables, four of which have drinkers, and large hay/storage areas; a four bay hay barn; and a timber and block constructed workshop divided into two areas. There is also a sand school measuring 45 by 25 metres.
The land is in good heart and principally laid to pasture with woodland shaws and copses, one of which has a large pond. The northernmost end of the farm has another pond and borders the River Brede. The gardens and grounds extend in all to about 79 acres.
