INTRODUCTION

The sale of Northrigg Hill provides an opportunity to purchase an upland residential stock rearing and fattening farm with land of fertile and productive quality all contained within a ring fence, a attractive traditional Grade II listed Farmhouse, and a substantial range of traditional and more modern farm buildings.

The property is bordered by Hadrian’s Wall in one of the more favoured wall positions which gives it significant potential for diversified activity linked to this UNESCO World Heritage site and associated visitor numbers.

The farm steading is centrally positioned, all of the land is within the Severely Disadvantaged LFA classification, gently undulating and lies between circa 120m and 165m above sea level being classified within Grade IV on the MAFF Land Classification Plans. The soils are generally a combination of loamy and clayey mixes and ideally suited to grass production.

The Grade II listed farmhouse offers good quality residential accommodation at the heart of the farm and adjacent to the traditional steading. The property benefits long ranging panoramic views to the south over the Irthing Valley, North Pennines Fells and across to the Lake District National Park.

The farm building complex has been developed to provide a well planned and useful range, currently used to house beef and sheep enterprises but capable for adaptation for alternative stock rearing.

The total area extends to approximately 105.95 hectares (261.80 acres) and is divided into enclosures of a convenient size and shape with little wastage. Northrigg Hill is offered to the market as a whole or in two Lots.
