Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The development provides an exciting combination of refurbishment and new build either to sell on or hold for rental investment.

Outline planning permission was granted by Lancaster City Council (reference: 15/01362/OUT, dated 23rd March 2016) for 'the demolition of existing workshop and erection of 2 dwellings'. The workshop has been demolished and so the site is ready.

There are four period cottages offering two, three and four bedroom accommodation of character; these are all now in need of significant upgrading (three are now vacant having been rented out for some years with Springfold currently let on an Assured Shorthold Tenancy). Within the row there is also a flying freehold which could be rectified and at the same time, landscaping the site will allow for private gardens and parking for each cottage at the rear.

The cottages have mains electricity with electric heating and drainage to a shared septic tank.
There is a right of access to the front on behalf of a neighbouring property, Beckside. Drive maintenance is spilt between the five properties.

The properties are sold as seen.

With a small general store and tea rooms, Cowan Bridge is a highly accessible village on the A65 on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. It is very much a satellite village for Kirkby Lonsdale, a popular market town on the River Lune in the heart of this picturesque valley, lying 2.1 miles distant to the south-east and so is convenient for secondary schools (the well regarded Queen Elizabeth School), shops (including Booths supermarket), public houses, eateries, banks, post office, doctors, dentists and the like. There are primary schools at Leck (0.7 miles) and Kirkby Lonsdale. Kendal (15.4 miles) or Lancaster (17.5 miles) offer a wider range of services with connection to the West Coast railway line at Oxenholme (13 miles).
To find the properties, leave Kirkby Lonsdale on the A65 travelling towards Ingleton. After two miles enter the village of Cowan Bridge. Turn second right, after the old bridge, and the row of cottages on the right. The building plot is to the rear of the properties.
