Land for sale at Draytonmead Farm, Buckinghamshire

Land for sale close to Aston Clinton, Aylesbury, Tring and the A41

Model Row, Buckland, Buckinghamshire, HP22 5JA

Land for sale with hardstanding from the remains of old farm buildings

Just 3 lots available at this idyllic site totalling just over 7 acres. The land benefits from extensive road frontage and two gated access points. The site has previously been granted planning permission for a 540m2 concrete livestock building on the remains of previous buildings that lie within Lots 1 & 2, part of which is reportedly that of an old farm house.

This flat pasture land is suitable for a variety of amenity, recreational or other uses (STPP). The land could also offer potential for those looking for equestrian use with the start of a 2 mile bridleway lying opposite the land.

The land is situated on the northern edge of the affluent village of Buckland, north of Aston Clinton and just 3 miles west of Aylesbury. The area enjoys good transport links with the nearby A41 providing a fast, direct link to the M25 and Aylesbury and Tring train stations.

Please note, the grazing land has just been topped.

Access

The site enjoys extensive road frontage onto Model Row with Lots 2 & 3 each benefitting from gated access. Full vehicular right of way is provided to Lot 1 via an easement (shown blue on the site plan).

Planning

The land has previously been granted planning permission (Planning Ref. 99/01646/APP) for a concrete livestock building measuring 30m x 18m (540m2) on the remains of previous buildings that lie within Lots 1 & 2, part of which is reportedly that of an old farm house.

The land is designated as greenfield. Any development would be subject to the appropriate planning permission.

Overage

Uniquely there are no overage payments on this land – rare in today’s land market.

Method of Sale

The land is offered for sale by private treaty as a whole or in lots. The freehold is available with vacant possession upon completion.

Non-farming buyers set the pace in rising farmland market

Despite the Brexit-related uncertainties, the farmland market has proven more resilient than many might have predicted as land prices increased 2% last year.

Investors have played an increasing role in the farmland market as they tend to be attracted to tangible assets as they see them as a safe haven for their capital. Land in the right location remains in considerable demand for capital investment for many non-farming reasons, including development potential, privacy, tax reasons, or amenity.

In the immediate future it is anticipated that land prices will continue to rise, supported by a lack of supply.
