Gabber Farm & Land at Paiges Farm, Down Thomas, Plymouth, Devon, PL9 0AW
A productive 201 acre farm with 7 bedroom farmhouse, range of traditional and modern farm buildings and productive farmland. For sale by Public Auction in four lots on Wednesday 17th April 2024 at 7pm.

SITUATION - Gabber Farm and the Land at Paiges sit flanking two sides of the pretty village of Down Thomas, in the beautiful and favoured South Hams, close to the coast at Plymouth Sound, and quite rightly designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village has an excellent pub, village stores and Post Office although the much larger town of Plymstock is only 2½ miles away and the port city of Plymouth a further 3 miles. The main A38 dual carriageway is about 5 miles away and offers fast access toward Exeter and the M5 Motorway.

GENERAL DESCRIPTION, LOTTING & GUIDE PRICES - Gabber Farm and the Land at Paiges Farm have been farmed as a single holding for many years, until recently producing milk from a Holstein Friesian herd alongside growing arable crops. The farmstead includes a traditional farmhouse, that has been extended to provide additional accommodation, taking advantage of the thriving B&B trade in the near coastal setting.

The buildings comprise a mixture of traditional stone barns and more modern dairy and general-purpose farm buildings, which may be adapted to a number of different farming policies, but equally may offer potential for some form of residential development, subject to the normal planning process. More recently, some of the smaller buildings have been used for stabling and some of the land for horse grazing on a DIY basis.
