Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An interesting and unique opportunity for one to acquire a large family house with barns and outbuildings with potential. A 5/6 bedroomed, 2 reception roomed former farmhouse with grounds and gardens. The property has views from the paddocks and barns over the Solway to Scotland. Further land may be available.

From the front, the property belies its true extent. Behind the house there is an extensive range of barns and outbuildings both of traditional and more recent construction, an orchard, vegetable garden and wooded bank down to the seashore. The property has views from the grounds and barns over the Solway to Scotland.

Potential development with regards to the barns is speculative and planner’s advice would need to be sought in order to ascertain what may or may not be considered.

Further land which includes a separate field (3.4 acres) and a paddock with Dutch barn may be available.

At the western end of Hadrian’s Wall Bowness on Solway
was the location of the Roman fort Maia. The village is built on the site of the fort and Roman stones can be seen in the local buildings, including the Norman church of St. Michael.

It is also part of the Solway Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and home to nationally and internationally important species. It is a great place for walking, cycling, and bird watching and there are several nature reserves nearby, such as Campfield Marsh RSPB reserve, South Solway Mosses NNR, Finglandrigg Wood NNR, and Drumburgh Moss.

The Hadrian's Wall Path National Trail, starts (or ends) here. Walkers can collect stamps for the Summer Passport, the last or first of which is situated close to Bowness House.

Rampart Head is located in the orchard to the rear of Bowness House and is said to be the last milecastle on Hadrians Wall.

The property falls within the Bowness Primary School (Rated good by OFSTED) catchment area and the ever-popular secondary school of Nelson Thomlinson, Wigton (Rated outstanding by OFSTED). Broadband is available in the area up to 80mb speed.
