Full description

This cracking project comprises of a substantial range of barns and outbuildings situated on the outskirts of Allerby. The Barns, which are sand stone finished to the front, retain enormous character, arranged around a courtyard and providing substantial space.
The barns are dry with a new roof added 15 years ago with roof lights installed along with mains water and drainage connected.
There are numerous conversion possibilities for this excellent property and there is existing planning consent with certificate of lawfulness for residential use.

Location - Allerby is a small rural village offering a wonderful range of work/leisure opportunities, being close to major employment centres along the west coast, approximately 20 miles drive to Carlisle and attractive surrounding countryside which includes the quieter north western parts of the Lake District National Park and the delightful Solway coastline, much of which is protected as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).

Description - The Barns and agricultural buildings currently form a "U" shape arranged around an open courtyard area to the front together with garden space to the rear and an open outlook towards surrounding farmland.

The Barns are of traditional materials including sandstone and slate, currently forming a mix of single and two storey space.

Planning Consent - The original Planning Consent was granted in August 1986 for conversion of the existing buildings to holiday units - Ref. 2/86/0590. A Certificate of Lawfulness was granted on the 12th April 2007, acknowledging that the original Planning Consent remains valid by virtue of commencement of works within the appropriate timescale and, in the absence of any planning condition restricting the occupancy to approved units for holiday use, the Local Planning Authority accepts that the units may be occupied for conventional residential purposes. The Planning Consent is therefore for conversion of the existing premises to four residential units without restriction.

Development Scheme - The existing premises include substantial barns and agricultural buildings. The current plans are for a conversion of the space into four residential units as follows:-

A semi detached cottage with open plan lounge/dining area, kitchen, bathroom and three bedrooms.

A mid mews cottage withy open plan lounge/dining/kitchen together with two bedrooms and bathroom.

An upside down design taking advantage of a balcony area and extensive views with accommodation including two bedrooms, bathroom and an open plan lounge/dining/kitchen area.

An "L" shaped semi detached cottage with separate lounge and dining areas, kitchen, utility/shower, 3 bedrooms, bathroom and en suite.

The premises include an open area to the front with the potential to create an attractive courtyard together with garden area to the rear.

Copies of the plans showing the elevations and floor layouts together with a copy of the Planning Consent and Certificate of Lawfulness are available for inspection at Grisdales, Lorton Street, Cockermouth, Cumbria.
