A 72-acre farm previously belonging to Flintshire Council has gone up for sale for more than a three quarters of a million pounds.
Bruton Knowles has been instructed by the local authority to dispose of Cefn Farm, Bagillt, following the council’s programme of property rationalisation across the county.
Cefn Farm is an existing dairy holding, which offers views over the River Dee Estuary and surrounding North Wales countryside.
The holdings, with a collective guide price of £800,000, are made up of quality pasture land, farm house and a range of modern and traditional farm buildings.
With its road links to the nearby Chester and the North-West of England, the property is described as “an attractive purchase for both existing farmers and lifestyle buyers”.
Selling agent Gareth Lay said: “This is one of those rare and unfettered holdings which has been well farmed over the years and has not been diversified or have any planning history.
“It is a blank canvas for purchasers to make their own mark on the property, whether that is for dairy farming or an attractive equestrian property
“The size and layout of the farm is such that it would also appeal to commercial farmers looking to expand their businesses.”
Cefn Farm is to be sold by public auction in two lots on Tuesday, July 11 at 6.30pm at Old Padeswood Golf Club.
Lot one comprises house, farm buildings and about 26.07 acres (10.55 hectares) of pasture land, with a guide price of £525,000.
Lot two comprises 46.30 acres (18.74 hectares) of pasture land and has a guide price £275,000.
