The Coastguard Tower, Mill Lane, Walney Island


Property Description

Full description


UNIQUE is an oft’ misused word, but not on this occasion. We are delighted to offer a former Battery/Coastguard Tower, 15 miles from the edge of the Lake District National Park (Greenodd). An Historic Observation Tower on the site of a pre WW1 Fort, with 360 degrees of stunning sea and Lake District mountain views. The property has planning permission for conversion into a large luxury dwelling in grounds of approx 0.5 acres.

The red brick former WW1 Military Observation Tower (latterly the Coastguard’s Tower) is five storeys with adjoining former boat store of some 235 sq metres (approx) with PP for installation of a first floor over the boat store which will increase it by a further 70 sq metres. The property is ready for you to decide which views you want on each floor –breathtaking sunsets over the sea or sun rise over the Lakeland fells,

On clear days the vistas are 90+ miles, one of very few places in England where you can see both Wales and Scotland simultaneously, yet is only 35 miles from Jct 36 of the M6 Motorway and Oxenholme Lake District Station (2hrs 50mins to Euston)

The property has undeveloped grounds with a Bunker (13 sq m), in original condition. Outside there is plenty of room for cars, caravan/camper and a whole host of boats/toys! Lots of space for chickens, goats or even a pony.

A rare and superb opportunity to develop a landmark building to your own specifications, the TV programme Restoration Man would like to film the conversion, TV contract available for inspection.
