Property description

Tenure: Freehold

For sale by Tender. Bid Deadline: 12 Noon Thursday 30th September 2021. Viewing by appointment only. Important Note: The property requires structural works to the roof and attached barn, along with general modernisation to include wiring and drainage.

A fine Georgian property with period features, including a stunning ceiling to the study, beams, fireplaces, architraves and floorboards. The setting is idyllic, with views out across Morecambe Bay to the front aspect and inland to the Lakeland fells. The plot extends to approx. 1.24 acres with patio seating areas, lawns, vegetable beds, parking, lush woodland and a small paddock adjacent to the detached barn.

An attached barn requires rebuilding, providing a perfect opportunity to extend and create a 4th bedroom with en-suite and additional reception/office space below. A large detached barn has scope for conversion to create additional accommodation, holiday lets or workspace and could potentially be sold on separately. Works would be subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents.

Located on a hilltop just outside Ulverston, in the Lake District Peninsulas region. Opportunities like this are rare to market and viewing is advised in order to appreciate the potential and unique setting.

The Cragg - In the house, the ground floor accommodation briefly comprises: large farmhouse style dining room; hall; sitting room with door out to a charming terraced garden; study with stunning Georgian ceiling; kitchen with exposed beams and slate steps down to a useful basement/pantry and large conservatory to the rear aspect.

A beautiful period staircase rises to the first floor landing with access to the 3 bedrooms and huge house bathroom. A ladder staircase rises to the loft and provides a potential connection through to an extension, if built on the footprint of the attached barn. The 2 bedrooms to the front aspect enjoy superb views out to sea and across Morecambe Bay.

The attached barn is stone built with an open doorway to the rear aspect. Please note, access is not permitted due to the instability of the gable end wall.

A driveway currently runs to the rear of the house, with a parking area for 3/4 cars. The large detached barn currently comprises: large workshop with light and power; huge central barn; 3 additional store rooms - one without roof - to the front aspect, and a further store room to the rear. The barn has a second floor to the northern end, but access to this is not permitted on grounds of safety.

Outside, the house has gardens to the front and side aspects and these comprise lawns, vegetable beds, patio seating areas and a large feature pond. A further outbuilding provides storage space for bikes and tools and includes a WC. There are 2 greenhouses located in the top garden area. Steps and pathways lead down into the natural woodland, with a beck flowing through. To the rear of the property, there is a further patio seating area and feature pond. A small paddock area adjacent to the detached barn enjoys lovely views across the bay and would be ideal as a dedicated garden, following any conversion.

Location - Nearby Ulverston is a charming market town with a good range of independent shops, bars and restaurants. The famous John Barrow Monument is situated on a hill above the town. Junction 36 on the M6 is approx. 25 miles drive, from which Carlisle and Scotland can be reached heading north and Lancaster, Preston and Manchester, south. Trains run from Ulverston Station to Barrow and Lancaster, with connections through to Preston and Manchester Airport. Ulverston Victoria High School is just over 2 miles away, with 3 primaries available within a few miles drive.

The Cragg is accessed via a single track adopted road from the A590 between Ulverston and Arrad Foot and is one of just 2 properties located at the top of this quiet no-through lane. The surrounding countryside is of high scenic value and a haven for wildlife. Just south of the spectacular Lake District National Park, the possibilities for day trips are numerous, with the unique coastal landscapes of Morecambe Bay providing fabulous views and walks. what3words: climate.lamplight.squeaks
