An accessible and well located block of arable, with some potential for viticulture use, on the north western edge of the village of Northchapel.

Situation The property is well situated, on the northern boundary of the village of Northchapel, with road frontage to the main A283 and access from the south east over a farm track. Northchapel benefits from limited local services including a village shop and public house, whilst more extensive facilities can be found in Petworth to the south or Haslemere to the north west.

Lot 1 – Land extending to 42.44 acres (17.18 ha) Guide price £410,000

Lot 1 extends to approximately 42.83 acres in total with gated vehicular access directly from the A283. The land comprises 6 arable fields subdivided by a mixture of mature native hedging and post and wire fencing. A secondary access over a farm track and bridleway is located in the south western corner. In recent years the land has been in arable production, but it has not been cultivated this year, and is of sandy clay soil.

Lot 2 – Land extending to 21.89 acres (8.86 ha) Guide Price £200,000
