Thoroton farmyard site sells to Wheatcroft Land for development

Thoroton farmyard site sells to Wheatcroft Land for development

A former farmyard in the sought-after village of Thoroton, situated close to the A52 between Nottingham and Grantham, has been sold to Wheatcroft Land through land experts Mather Jamie.


The sale marks the start of the development of the site which will provide eight much-needed new homes for the East Midlands. 

The site, which extends to 2.19 acres, was sold by informal tender by Mather Jamie following the demolition of the redundant farm buildings which previously stood on the site. The land, which is accessed directly off Main Street, has full planning approval from the local authority for eight new dwellings. 


Catherine Haward, Director and Owner of Wheatcroft Land said: “We’re really excited about bringing this development of eight luxury new builds to life over the next year. As a former farmyard, the homes will be in the style of farm buildings and barns, creating a community that’s full of character.  


“We pride ourselves on developing individual homes that are unique to each location, making them distinctive and offering something different to other new builds on the market. The properties at Thoroton will feature luxury bathrooms and dressing rooms, en-suites and open plan family rooms that have bi-fold doors leading to private gardens - all ideal for growing families looking to settle in their dream home.”  


Gary Kirk, Associate Director of Mather Jamie, said: “Thoroton Farm represents an excellent opportunity to build desirable new homes on a site which opens out onto open countryside, hence it is likely to be popular with professionals looking to commute to Nottingham, Leicester or Grantham.


“Its position close to the A46 and A52 means that it is an ideal location for people wishing to live in the countryside whilst being able to commute quickly to some of the largest cities and towns in the East Midlands and beyond. It will be exciting to see what Wheatcroft Land Limited make of the opportunity.”


The site is situated within the picturesque village of Thoroton which benefits from good road links, nearby train links, including a direct line to London and desirable school catchments and ultra-fast broadband.
