Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Situated in the picturesque Ennerdale valley within the Lake District National Park, Dryhurst is a traditional four bedroomed farmhouse with large outbuildings providing scope for conversion (STPP) and an adjoining paddock of 1.7 acres.

It is rare to encounter a property of this nature within the Lake District National Park and even more unusual to find one introduced to the open market. Offering breathtaking views across its own land to some of the better recognised western fells the property provides spacious accommodation, which in brief comprises entrance hallway, lounge, dining room, kitchen and shower room to the ground floor. There are four well appointed double bedrooms positioned on the first floor, together with a family bathroom.

It is the outside space which is perhaps the property's most surprising feature, with attractive gardens, fruit garden and an old orchard area. The large outbuildings provide an ideal opportunity for the right purchaser to extend their own living accommodation or generate an attractive income stream through conversion into one or multiple holiday lets (subject to the relevant permissions).

Planning permission exists for an extension into part of the barn to provide a new kitchen with a bedroom/office and shower room above.

There is the option to purchase an additional 29 acres (approx.) of land which runs to the sides, front and rear of the property by separate negotiation. The land is currently leased until late 2017 so could be purchased at a later date.

Viewing is essential in order to appreciate the setting and true potential offered by this fascinating property.

Additional Land
Up to 29 acres (approx.) of grazing land which is located to the sides, front and rear of the property and currently leased until late 2017 is available to purchase in addition and by negotiation.


Location
The property occupies an idyllic setting just under three miles from beautiful Ennerdale Water and a short drive to the Lakeland village of Ennerdale Bridge. Ennerdale Bridge offers a church, two inns and a well regarded primary school with the surrounding area providing some of the finest walking in England on some of Cumbria's highest and best known fells. Cockermouth, a lovely old market town with strong Wordsworth associations, is some ten miles distant. Whitehaven, an interesting old sea port is only nine miles away.

Services
Mains electricity, septic tank drainage, private water supply. Heated by two multi-fuel stoves one of which provides hot water and heats one towel rail and one radiator but is capable of heating up to 7 radiators as a central heating system. Double glazed where stated. Telephone line installed subject to BT regulations. Please note - the mention of any appliances and/or services within these particulars does not imply that they are in full and efficient working order.

Directions
From the Whitehaven office proceed out of the town centre via Hensingham and into Cleator Moor. Continue out through the town centre onto Ennerdale Road, turning right at the crossroads onto Trumpet Road and take the immediate left. Stay on this road for approximately 2 miles, over the cattle grid onto Longmoor. Take the opening on your right and continue for approx. 1/4 mile up the track to Dryhurst
