Thanks for the link. Judging by the measurements given on the site provided the 2 paddocks are both approaching 1.1 acres each and the total plot is just over 2.6 acres. Which confirms my approximate measurements of around 1 acre per paddock and 2-3 acres for the entire plot.
However I should remind you that these measurements are not legally binding and the total acreage will need to be confirmed by a solicitor. If anyone has any concerns about whether the acreage is enough for their requirements, but they are genuinely interested, then they are more than welcome to request particulars and arrange a viewing etc. Also we are in a rural area surrounded by farms and smallholdings and I'm sure that if required additional grazing could easily be rented nearby, however I have personally never needed to do this.
I seem to have received a couple of comments regarding the acreage and I just want to be clear that I'm not trying to present this property as a commercial farm or imply that it has more land than it does, however if anyone is looking for an immaculately presented, low maintenance, modern property with no work required and a few acres of adjoining land for hobby farming/cottage industry/generating low carbon energy/small scale business (well-being centre/campsite etc)/potential development etc then this is the ideal property and it provides loads of flexibility and potential. Please bear in mind that this is priced competitively and realistically to sell, you could purchase a similar house on a similar cul-de-sac in a similar area in Cornwall with no land and pay the same asking price.
Thanks for the comment, the grass is very lush and good quality, there is an abundance of clover which helps to fertilise the soil and we have mild winters so the growing season is longer. The land is slightly sloping and has good drainage in both the lower corners where the water runs off the land, so the land never gets saturated. The paddock currently resting is approx 1-1.5ft grass length, the other paddock is 0.5-1ft length, there are currently 6 Shetland ponies on the land but this number fluctuates depending on available grazing and the ladies requirements. The land has previously supported cattle, horses, sheep and chickens although not all at the same time and the grazing has not suffered with any long term effects as I have always ensured that livestock is rotated to rest the other paddock. I have also managed the land organically where possible, although it's not certified as organic, I never use artificial pesticides or fertilisers etc - I have used crovect
on the sheep for flystrike protection and all livestock has been wormed orally in accordance with their individual requirements, however that is the only chemicals that has been on the land in my ownership.
As I say in the Facebook page, I know my property better than any estate agent and I am happy to have an honest chat with anyone who is genuinely interested in the property...
