HAM HILL FARM

Set on the brow of the hill with the most amazing quintessential Cotswold aspect, Ham Hill Farm is a compact ring fenced farm within easy reach of the fashionable spa town of Cheltenham located at the foot of the hill.

Surrounded by gardens on three sides and enjoying the most amazing view to the south, the property occupies an enviable position. Set well back from what is a quiet country lane, the main house is approached via a long sweeping driveway.

Built in 1980 by the current owners, the house extends to around 3,934 square feet and has for a long time been used as a popular bed and breakfast. Whilst having been perfectly maintained, the property would now benefit from some updating.

The house briefly comprises a kitchen/breakfast room, three reception rooms, study, utility and cloakroom. In addition to 6 bedrooms and 4 bath/shower rooms in the main house, there are three additional bedroom suites in a linked annex.

FARM BUILDINGS

Located some distance away from the house and accessed via a separate driveway from the lane, there are a range of versatile steel frame farm buildings which have obvious uses including

agricultural, dry storage or equestrian as well as holding planning potential.

Totalling 8,266 square feet, the farm buildings have both an electricity connection and a water connection.

Bounded by the residential curtilage and the farm buildings to the north the farm comprises permanent pasture meadows which produce a good crop of grazing or conservation grass. The land falls away sharply from the garden and farmhouse giving views over the paddocks and down the valley towards Leckhampton Hill to the south.

The fields are fenced for horses or cattle bounded by mature hedging so suitable for livestock use.
