Full description

A rare if not unique opportunity to purchase a fascinating former mill with adjoining barn, partially converted but in need, now, of restoration, offered with adjoining modern and older out buildings, paddocks and fields and a pretty stretch (both banks) of the River Ellen.

In all, the property extends to approximately 6.76 acres (2.74 hectares).

The mill barn is located in the very north of the Lake District National Park in a pretty setting adjoining the mill house and next to the charming parish church. Keswick is just 12 miles to the south, Wigton some 7 miles to the north and Carlisle, Cockermouth and the more industrial centres of West Cumbria beyond are all within comfortable commuting distance. The local towns cater well for everyday needs with the usual primary and secondary schools, general shops and supermarkets, numerous sports clubs and bus and rail services. The scope for outdoor pursuits - sailing, walking, cycling and climbing is obvious.

Planning permission for the present conversion was granted in 2000 under Ref 7/2000/2017. Further applications for conversion of the barn were refused in 2003. The property is therefore "sold as seen" with immediate possession, subject to contract, if required.
