KNIGHT Frank are delighted to announce the successful sale of a grassland farm of about 80 acres which included three properties in the Suckley Hills, west of Worcester.

Mosewick Farm, stands on the slopes of Halesend Wood and Bearswood Common and amongst rolling wooded countryside interspersed with pretty villages such as Longley Green, Suckley and Storridge.

The farm was last sold in 1959.

It included the farmhouse and its associated buildings and a listed building all in need of refurbishment prominently look west over Longley Green village.

The Cradley Brook and Halesend Wood formed most of the boundaries with Bearswood Common the dominant wooded escarpment.

All the land is currently down to grass with spring water available.

The Harp Cottage and Barn is the diamond in the middle of the farm with huge potential in a very magical location. The Harp Cottage was last lived in, in the 1960s.

Bearswood Farm was granted permission to convert the building into a two bedroom cottage with a large open planned kitchen/dining and living room in 1972.

The property sits well at the end of a lane with about 14.5 acres lying naturally with this house.

Mosewick Farm was sold as a whole at public auction on July 3 and was offered for sale at a guide price of £700,000.

Jonathan Bengough, a partner of Knight Frank's Worcester office reports that "We had another highly successful auction sale for Mosewick Farm, situated just west of Worcester, an 80 acre farm which sold for £1,050,000.

"The farm achieved £300,000 in excess of the guide price.

"A great deal of excitement was generated during the marketing and bidding was keen with many interested parties in the room on the night."
