The Land at Mill Lane is located on the western edge of the village of Twyford in rural Buckinghamshire approximately 8 miles north east of the larger town of Bicester. The land lies within a ring fence to the north of the Bicester Road which leads directly into Twyford.
Formerly part of Alan Jarvis's training yard and including its all weather gallop, the property totals 80 acres of mainly arable, pasture and woodland sitting in a ring fence block in an attractive location. The 6 furlong gallop within the property curves round the lower half of the southern fields with a small incline. The land is split into three main fields with small areas of woodland located to the northern boundary and central to the site. The current owner of the property has successfully gained planning permission for a small equine development of a 20 box stable barn with a central feed passage and three bedroom eco cabin with an equine occupancy condition.
This is a wonderful opportunity to purchase an attractive block of land with the site prepared to build out a new yard suitable for a wide variety of equestrian uses. Once a business is established planning approval should be sought for a permanent dwelling.
The property is accessed along the main drive, located on the western boundary, where there is a right of access, or alternatively from Mill Lane to the north east directly from Twyford village.
