Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Enjoying splendid views of prominent Lakeland Fells such as High Street and Wansfell plus some glimpses of Lake Windermere, this is an exciting opportunity to build a detached house and create a unique Lakeland home.

THE PLOT- the plot has consent from the Lake District National Park reference: 7/2020/5295 for a contemporary detached two storey house of around 120 sq m (1,291sq ft) with space to create an off road parking area and gardens (the curtilage is shown edged red on the site plan). The existing garage was built by the current owners with a view to development in the future, therefore a lot of the basic foundation works have already been done. It is in very good order and it is thought that there is a good supply of local stone and slate for the construction. The proposed accommodation briefly comprises:

Ground floor: entrance vestibule, cloakroom with WC, conservatory, two double bedrooms both with en suite facilities.

First floor: open plan living kitchen with balcony and gallery.

Interested parties should take note of the local occupancy restriction attached to the planning and should ensure that they qualify.

GET CONNECTED - connections of services will be the responsibility of the purchaser. Mains electricity and water are within close proximity to the site. As part of the planning, the drainage is proposed to go to a domestic waste water treatment plant. Purchasers are advised to make their own enquiries to their own satisfaction in this regard.

HOW TO GET THERE - from Windermere follow the A591 towards Ambleside for approximately 0.5 miles. At the roundabout take the third exit onto Patterdale Road (A592). Follow this road north for about 3 miles. After the Queens Head Hotel, turn left onto Townhead Brow and proceed up the road. At the top of the hill turn left and Swallows Nest is down the track on the left hand side. Nearest postcode: LA23 1PN.

VIEWINGS - viewings are strictly by appointment only with the selling agents. All parties must be vigilant when inspecting the site.
