A very special rural property has come to the market in Devon which is to be sold at public auction with Kivells during a surge in new listings for the busy Farms and Land Department in 2018.

Jenns Farm, a fine traditional small holding, comes to the market for the first time in almost 2 centuries having been in the Petherick family since around 1827. The farm remained with the family until the last family occupant recently passed away at the age of 106.

This extremely rare opportunity is to be sold at the Kivells September Property Collective Auction on Wednesday the 19th September at Launceston Guildhall, following a hugely successful year of property and land auctions for the company. The spring auction was a clean sweep with every lot selling for above the guide price, while the summer auction saw nine out of the ten lots sell. 2018 auctions have also seen impressive sales of land and even a famous Cornish beach.

Jenns Farm consists of a stone, cob and slate roofed farmhouse and adjoining cottage, a stone and slate barn, small range of livestock buildings and just over 21 acres of pasture land. The property comprises a pair of adjoining two bedroom cottages that have potential for refurbishment as two separate dwellings or, subject to planning, could be merged into one large dwelling providing huge potential for a private residence, investment property or holiday let/home.

The farm enjoys a picturesque setting with extensive views towards the breath-taking Dartmoor National Park and the North Cornish coast. The property is perfectly located, close to the thriving village of Bradworthy with its excellent range of amenities, and the historic market town of Holsworthy with its weekly livestock market, pannier market and extensive range of shops, merchants, banks and professional services. The stunning north Cornish coastal town of Bude is nearby with its golden beaches, restaurants, leisure facilities, coastal walks and breath-taking scenery.

Kivells Director Mark Bromell says “Jenns Farm is a unique property located close to the Devon/Cornwall county border. It sits in the coastal hinterland of the dramatic north coast and in the popular rural, but exceptionally well serviced and self-contained, friendly parish of Bradworthy.  It is rare to find a property that has remained in the same family for almost two hundred years and the Auction on the 19th September will be the first time the property has come to the open market for at least that period and quite probably much longer. It really is a gem!”

Kivells Holsworthy Farms a Land Agency are proud to be marketing Jenns Farm which will be auctioned in 5 lots. Lot 1 consists of a pair of semi-detached cottages and two adjoining grass fields of around 3 acres – Guide £200,000. Lot 2 is a traditional barn, garage and small paddock – Guide £30,000. Lot 3 is approximately 8.05 acres of pasture land with a range of outbuildings – Guide £60,000. Lot 4 is a corner field extending to 3.08 acres – Guide £25,000 and Lot 5 is approximately 6.72 acres of pasture land – Guide £50,000.
