Tenure: Freehold

Outline planning permission for three dwellings. Available either as separate plots or as a whole. Tranquil area between Levens and Cinderbarrow. Ideal for self-build dwellings, good size plots with a high level of amenities. No occupancy conditions.

PLOT 1 - Northerly Site, south of Wayside Cottage.

This site extends to about 0.267 of an acre [1084msq] or thereabouts, as shown edged red on the site plan herewith.

The anticipated aspect of the proposed dwelling is in a southerly direction with car parking facilities adjacent to the southerly boundary and a garage, as shown on the Indicative Concept Site Plan herewith.

The site includes the source of a stream which flows through Plot 2, as shown on the plan.

The gardens and grounds extend in an easterly direction, rising steeply upwards towards the far easterly boundary.

PLOT 2 - Middle Plot.

This site extends to about 0.197 of an acre [800msq] acres or thereabouts, as shown edged red on the site plan herewith.

The proposed site of the dwelling is just east of the stream which emanates from Plot 1 and flows through the front of the site towards a culvert as marked on the plan.

The proposed dwelling would have a westerly aspect and is set back from the road frontage, as shown on the Indicative Concept Site Plan herewith.

Beyond, rising steeply are the wooded grounds.

PLOT 3 - Southern Most Plot

This site extends to about 0.178 of an acre [720msq] acres or thereabouts, as shown edged red on the site plan herewith.

The aspect of this dwelling would be in a southerly direction with a car parking facility adjacent to the southerly boundary, as shown on the Indicative Concept Site Plan herewith.

Located near the road, alongside the easterly boundary, the plot rises steeply via wooded gardens and grounds towards the far easterly boundary.

From the centre of Levens village, which provides local amenities including a village shop, hairdressers, Bowling Green, tennis courts, church, Methodist Chapel, inn, village hall and a primary school.

At the crossroads with the Institute on the right, continue down Hutton Lane towards Cotes. The site is on the right just beyond the first junction on the left and before Wayside Cottage on the right.

Alternatively, if approaching from Sizergh and the Heaves Hotel, taking the back road into the village, turn right just beyond Heaves Farm. At the road junction carry straight down into Cotes. Continue towards Levens village and the plots are on the left hand side, just beyond Wayside Cottage.

The precise location and extent are shown on the site location plan 1:1250 and existing site plan, 1:500.

The extent of each plot is shown with pegs on site.

'Cotes' is between Levens village and Cinderbarrow, to the north. The plots lie to the east of the public highway between the centre of Levens village and Cinderbarrow, opposite Box Tree.

Each site rises gently from the public highway before steeply rising to the far easterly boundary. The rear portion of each site has the backdrop of wooded grounds with a selection of primarily hardwood species and rock outcrops.

Plot 1 is the northern most of the three plots, adjacent to Wayside Cottage. Lot 3 is the southern most of the three plots opposite Quaggs Farm.

All mains services are available in the vicinity.
