Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A rare opportunity to purchase a small country estate comprising an impressive family house and three superb and highly successful holiday cottages, set within beautiful gardens and woodland grounds of around five acres, including a delightful stretch of river, located just north of the market town

of Kendal on the edge of the Lake District.

SUMMARY
Low Jock Scar is a beautifully situated small country estate comprising four superbly appointed dwellings set within five acres of delightful gardens and woodland grounds including a stretch of Bannisdale Beck.

Since purchasing the property in 2006 our clients have considerably upgraded and improved the property, most particularly by building a stunning detached three bedroom house of contemporary design.

Planning permission obtained in 2015 allows for any three of the dwellings to be used as holiday cottages with the fourth being the owners' residence. This flexibility of use will be a highly attractive feature for investors and business operators.

Three of the cottages are run by the owners as highly successful holiday lets producing a valuable income stream whilst the main house itself is used as an extremely comfortable and spacious family home.

The property occupies an idyllic setting on the very edge of the Lake District National Park, surrounded by rolling farmland and majestic fells. Whilst the location is private and peaceful it is only a ten minute drive from the historic market town of Kendal.
