Land for Sale in Pear Tree Farm, Warwickshire

Land on Moor Lane, Willoughby, Rugby, Warwickshire, CV23 8BU

Agricultural land for sale in Pear Tree Farm, Warwickshire with permission for an agricultural building suitable for smallholding close to Rugby, Dunchurch, Daventry and the M1 motorway

Why buy land for sale in Pear Tree Farm, Warwickshire?

A rare opportunity to own over 33 acres of pasture land for sale with permission to erect a large agricultural storage building near the entrance of the site. This building measures 30m x 15m and totals 450m2 (4,843 sq ft).

Though there is a long-held aim at County and District level to resist new residential development in the open countryside, one of the few exceptions to this rule is the provision of agricultural workers’ dwellings, where it can be clearly demonstrated that such are essential to the needs of a viable agricultural enterprise.

Construction of this agricultural building could possibly lead to permission being granted for a mobile home on the site upon commencement of an agricultural enterprise. Furthermore, subject to the development of a sustainable business in agriculture, permission for a house could possibly be granted after three years.

The land benefits from excellent gated access and extensive road frontage. A small pond can be found on the southern boundary providing a natural water supply. The field is characterised by gently undulating, lush grassland and well defined boundaries of mature hedgerow and trees.

The site enjoys the benefits of the rural countryside, yet has a sense of residential inclusion, being located on the edge of Willoughby. This, combined with superb transport links increases the land’s investment potential.

The total size is to be 450m2 (4,843 sq ft) and it should be constructed of a steel portal frame, concrete block and box profile sheet walls and box profile sheet roof.

The development must be carried out within a period of 5 years (from 28 Jan. 2008).

The land is designated within the Greenbelt and any further development would be subject to planning permission.

Land Prices

Pasture land values in this region increased by 3% in the last 6 months and are 24% higher than the England & Wales average – the highest in the country (RICS Rural Land Market Survey).

Traditionally land has been seen as a ‘safe haven’ for investors, outperforming other asset classes. Over the past 10-years, farmland has outgrown Prime Central London Residential Property by 33%, UK House Prices by 38% and the FTSE 100 by 32% (Knight Frank).

Furthermore the demand for land continues to outstrip supply. The supply of farmland to the market last year was down 16% compared to the previous year, and down 8% compared to the 10-year average (Savills).

RICS Rural Land Market Survey

The latest RICS Rural Land Market Survey reports that land prices increased by 12% over the past year as the growth in demand for farmland continues to outstrip that of supply.

A significant revival in ‘lifestyle’ demand for land is pushing up land prices and supporting expectations for further increases over the course of the next twelve months.
