If you want to propel your agency into the press you could take a snort at this listing.
Butler Sherborn has listed a Warwickshire farm at Idlicote, together with a number of racing camels and racing pigs.
The Fossett family has been training and racing their camels and pigs for almost 20 years but now their property has been listed for sale with Butler Sherborn.
The Old Farmhouse is an imposing 18th Century Cotswold stone farmhouse that’s known locally as ‘where the camels live’, admittedly within a well-fenced paddock.
The gorgeous house has period features such as flagstone floors, exposed beams and original fireplaces.
Spread over three floors, it offers a well laid out family home with potential for modernisation, with all the expected rooms and spaces, as well as a self-contained annexe. There is an enclosed garden and a yard area with a Dutch barn converted to create five stables, tack room/workshop, a storage building and WC.
The property runs to 3.4 acres, of which approximately 3 acres are the paddock of well-established grassland.
Ben Way, at Butler Sherborn’s Stow-on-the-Wold office, “The Old Farmhouse is situated close to the unspoilt and idyllic hamlet of Idlicote and within some of Warwickshire’s prettiest countryside. It is well located to all main communication links including the M40 motorway just 9 miles for good access to Oxford, the Midlands and London, Birmingham International Airport and railway network.” Sadly, the camels and pigs are also moving on.
