Full description

Tenure: Freehold

SITUATION Located in the heart of Bowness-On-Windermere with a range of shops, restaurants and cafes right on the doorstep and plenty of local amenities. Positioned on a private road just off the main thorough through, a single storey dilapidated chalet sits on the site but has been granted permission to be demolished for the replacement dwelling.

DESCRIPTION The development opportunity enables the existing chalet structure to be removed and the replacement two bedroom dwelling would effectively be viewed as a single storey structure, although the dormer window to the front would offer space for a first floor within the property accommodating one of two bedrooms with en-suite facilities. To the ground floor the accommodation comprises large open plan kitchen/dining and lounge, split level ground floor with steps down to a double bedroom with en-suite shower room. The materials specified have been designed to match those of the surrounding buildings to be finished under a local blue grey slate roof. Planning Ref No- 7/2014/5352
