Large arable block successfully sold in Shropshire

Published January 7th, 2018

An excellent block of arable land with modern farm buildings extending to approximately 177.27 acres (71.74 hectares) has been sold by Berrys.

The land and buildings at Little Ness, Nesscliffe, Shropshire was sold by formal tender for well in excess of the £2.3 million guide.

“This was an excellent arable block in a good location with roadside access and, as we expected, it generated a great deal of interest from farmers locally and from further afield,” said Chris Jones, partner in charge of agency at the Shrewsbury office of Berrys.

“Land with such characteristics and location rarely comes on the market and its acreage and the added benefits of modern buildings made it attractive to farmers looking to expand and incorporate the land into an existing business and also those looking to run a standalone arable unit,” he said.

“The method of sale enabled a quick, clean and transparent conclusion which worked very well when land of this nature comes to the market,” he added.

A good number of tenders were received and the land was sold to a local farmer for well in excess of the guide price of £2.3 million (£13,000 per acre).
