    SUMMARY


    Introduction: Reeves Hall is a versatile residential farm located in a unique position on the north side of Mersea Island adjacent to the Pyefleet Channel. The farm is ring fenced and includes a Grade II listed farmhouse in need of modernisation, an extensive range of modern and traditional farm buildings (including a traditional Essex barn) and good quality arable and grassland. The farm extends to some 198.82 hectares (491.30 acres) comprising about 66.59 hectares (164.54 acres) of arable land, 111.38 hectares (275.23 acres) of pasture being a mixture of temporary grassland and permanent pasture and 4.77 hectares (11.81 acres) of woodland.

    The farm has both commercial and sporting potential as well as its huge amenity appeal. Reeves Hall is situated with considerable privacy off a minor public highway down a private drive with the Hall lying in the middle of the land. The agricultural buildings provide livestock housing, grain storage and ancillary storage with buildings being suitable for a number of agricultural uses.

    The traditional Essex barn and courtyard provide possibilities for alternative use (subject to planning). There is a family shoot with extensive wildfowling. The farm benefits from a Higher Level Stewardship Scheme providing an income of c. £45,000 per annum and is registered for the Basic Payment Scheme. The entitlements will transfer with the sale.

    Reeves Hall: Sitting in an imposing position at the end of an 800 metre private drive in the centre in the holding, Reeves Hall is an attractive Grade II listed dwelling which dates mainly from the 18th Century with later extensions in the 1960's. It is a detached farmhouse largely of red brick construction, part of which is under render and part painted; there is timber weatherboarding to the apex and part of the roof on the north elevation. Part of the house to the north is of traditional lathe and plaster construction. The roof is cross gabled with red clay tile covering and windows are predominantly single glazed timber sash windows with some being uPVC double glazed. Arranged over three floors with cellar space accessed from outside, the accommodation provides 2 reception rooms, snug, boot room, kitchen, office, entrance halls and bathroom on the ground floor with 6 bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor with separate WC and shower. In addition there are several unconverted attic spaces. The property would benefit from modernisation and cosmetic renovation. Reeves Hall sits in a compact garden with the farm buildings lying mainly to the north of the house.

    1 Reeves Hall Cottages: The farm includes a 3 bedroom semi-detached cottage located near the top of the drive off Meeting Lane. The cottage dates from the late 19th Century with elevations clad in timber weatherboarding and the roof pitched with a slate tile covering. The windows and doors are a combination of timber and uPVC construction. Accommodation comprises 3 bedrooms on the first floor and a bathroom with one reception room and a kitchen on the ground floor. The cottage sits within extensive gardens and grounds lined to the east, west and south of the cottage including lawned areas interspersed with mature trees and flower beds. The cottage is occupied by a former farm employee who has statutory protection under the Rent (Agriculture) Act 1976.

    Farm Buildings: Reeves Hall Farm benefits from an extensive range of traditional and modern farm buildings. All are accessible from the main driveway and are conveniently placed for access around the farm. A summary of the farm buildings can be seen inset on the buildings schedule and plan.

    Land: The land extends in total to approximately 198.82 hectares (491.30 acres). The farm includes arable, temporary and permanent pasture and woodland. The pasture land is grazed under a short term grazing licence with the arable being farmed by a neighbour under a contracting arrangement.

    The woodland extends to about 4.78 hectares (11.81 acres) which was planted in the 1980s and comprises small blocks of oak, field maple and hawthorn. The woodland is all attractively situated and is used as part of the family shoot. The majority of the land is Grade 3 on the Agricultural Land Classification Map and is of the Ratsborough series, a fine silty loam over clay. The middle part of the land is of the Windsor series, fine loam over clay and the far northern part of the farm is of the Wallasea 1 series which is a deep stoneless, non-calcareous soil with peaty surface horizons.
