The article announces the launch of Down Farm near Pewsey in Wiltshire, England, for public auction at the end of September 2008. The farm was originally prepared for sale with a view to beating the April 5, 2008 deadline that saw changes to Capital Gains Tax. The farm's advisers then took a new view, which has given the owner the time to seek planning permission to convert the two cottages on the farm to a single, 3000 square feet dwelling with an annexe. It will not have an agricultural occupancy restriction.
