A farmhouse with its own woodland and swathes of South Gloucestershire countryside has gone on the market for £3.25m.
Four-bedroom Lower Knole Farmhouse is located in Almondsbury along Monmouth Hill, and comes with tennis courts and an impressive parcel of land sprawling across 360.41 acres.
This encompasses Ellen’s Wood, pasture farm and a range of buildings, currently used as a stable, barn, workshop and for storage.
Knight Frank is marketing the property, writing in its brochure: “The wood was largely planted by the current owner’s father in 2001, with 160,000 new trees creating this extraordinary woodland largely of broadleaves with some conifer.
“It is well laid out with an excellent network of tracks and dykes with the woodland harbouring an abundance of wildlife, making it ideal for walking, riding and sporting.”
The property is available to buy as a whole or in three lots.
Lot one includes the farmhouse, farm buildings and tennis courts; lot two Ellen’s Wood and 64 acres of surrounding pastures; and the third lot covers the remaining 116.88 acres of farmed grassland, which is currently let on an annual grazing licence.
The house itself has four bedrooms, three bathrooms and three reception rooms, and looks in need of some updating inside.
Knight Frank’s brochure continues: “Situated off a quiet country lane, Lower Knole Farmhouse extends to about 2,579 sq ft and offers spacious living rooms with flexible bedroom accommodation.
“There is a large lawned garden to the front of the house with a parking area and garage. To the rear is a flood lit hard tennis court.”
Despite its rural location, the agents enthuse that the property is just 10 miles from Bristol city centre and three miles from the shopping facilities at Cribbs Causeway.
It is one of 19 multi-million pound homes on the market within 10 miles of central Bristol at the moment, according to Rightmove’s listings.
