SOLD: Brewers Edge £59,000 Freehold

Description

This manageable woodland really makes an impression – majestic mature beech trees, Scots pine, oak, birch, chestnut and hazel all feature in Brewers Edge. In the Spring a carpet of bluebells emerges, as well as primrose, lords and ladies and snowdrops - all hinting at it being an ancient woodland.

A meadow is situated to the east of the wood, providing space between the A229 and Brewers Edge, as well as allowing lots of sun light into the wood. A bench has been installed in the woodland, in a lovely sunny spot to sit and watch the wildlife. There is a ride-stop entrance in the southwest of the wood, with space to pull a vehicle in off the track. Back inside the locked entrance gates, along the southern side of the wood, there is a large timber stacking area which is shared with other owners.

The purchasers of the woodland will be asked to enter into a covenant to ensure the quiet and peaceful enjoyment of adjoining woodlands and meadows.

Trees

There is a great variety of tree species within Brewers Edge. To the south mixed broadleaves include birch, chestnut and hazel and there is the occasional larch. The middle of the wood includes mature beech and oaks, interspersed with birch and chestnut. The north part of the wood includes Scots pine and a couple of splendid mature chestnut standards.

Wildlife

Great spotted and green woodpeckers, nuthatch, sparrowhawks, buzzards and kestrels have been recorded in the area. There is plenty of opportunity to enhance the habitat for wildlife here, from the simple provision of bird and bat boxes to the management of the tree cover and ground flora.
