At Bilbrough, there's 120 acres of land, available as a whole or in nine lots

A home, land and a business

What could be better than a perfect home in rolling countryside? One with plenty of land, and a built in business! That’s the unique offering at Foss Farm at Acaster Malbis, near York.

Spread out over nearly 35 acres, this is a property with plenty of potential. There’s a well-established business to suit a range of buyers, a delightful four-bedroom farmhouse with ample gardens, traditional and modern farm buildings, stables, and a two storey-retail shop, making this an incredibly attractive and rare offering for an ambitious new owner.

The farmhouse has been extended to make it a decent sized family home – with nearly 1900 square feet of space, a sunny office space, and a separate living room, dining room and kitchen. The home also comes with a substantial mature garden with brick tile courtyard, pond, orchard, vegetable patch and large lawned gardens.

Available as a whole or in eight lots, Towthorpe lies between Strensall and Haxby and is suitable for farming or amenity purposes

The sale comes with the established pet food supplier and retailer, Foss Feeds and a thriving Christmas tree farm!

120 acres of land at Bilbrough

Next up is a substantial area of land, available as a whole or in nine lots, situated to the west of York. This prime arable land and woodland is suitable for a variety of purposes, including cereals, crops, orchards or equestrian use.

According to Johnny, this land is of good quality and based around the very popular and accessible village of Bilbrough with plots available in all sizes for all types of purchasers.

190 acres of land at Towthorpe

Available as a whole or in eight lots, this magnificent parcel of land lies between Strensall and Haxby and is suitable for farming or amenity purposes.

The land is strategically located lying directly adjacent to Strensall village and the new Haxby Railway Station. The River Foss dissects the land and provides amenity or environmental opportunities.

Johnny said: “The land is very well located strategically but we do expect demand for the smaller parcels from the amenity markets given the proximity to two large, thriving villages.”

He added: “Stephenson’s is a proud family firm. Our association with Stephenson’s Estate Agents, Boulton Cooper and York Auction Centre provides an unrivalled network of nine offices focusing on the agricultural, residential and development markets across the county.

“The professional team at Stephensons Rural are all qualified and able to deal with every facet of rural consultancy from the Environmental Scheme maze to valuations and sales of rural property, large or small.

“We are proud of our wide and loyal client base; and thrive on repeat instructions.”
