An unconverted, two storey barn with full planning permission for conversion into a three / four bedroom dwelling, located in the village of Ireby, near Keswick in Cumbria and just outside the Lake District National Park
The Limes Barn, Ireby, Cumbria, CA7 1EQ
The Limes Barn is a late Victorian two storey barn, constructed in locally quarried 'freestone' and dating from approximately 1895. It measures 50ft x 16ft internally and has more than ample ceiling heights on both floors.
The barn has full, unconditional planning consent, with full Building Control approval of the plans. Conversion can start immediately
The design shows a three bedroom conversion with adequate space for a fourth bedroom. The master bedroom has en suite facilities with
separate family bathroom and there is a Jack & Jill ensuite between the two bedrooms on the ground floor.
Conversion calls for eight additional windows in main structure and three Velux roof
lights. These openings are in addition to the mainly glazed closure to the old barn door.
The barn as it is now with elevation drawings
The barn stands behind a four metre hard ground parking area (space for three cars) and there is an additional hard parking area at the gable end on
the north side adjacent to a private garden area (approx. 25 x 35 feet) where a garage could be placed.
There is amenity land
available in part of the three acre 'Croft' to the west side of the barn, across the village 'Back Lane' which also gives alternative access
to the main road through the village, parallel to the Main Street. There is additional garden ground available if needed.
All services, except mains gas, are available for connection to the property.
Electricity runs underground through the access pathway
to the 'Back Lane' five yards away.
Mains sewerage will run to the main road through a connection to be made from this barn and the
adjacent barn (now under conversion) to the mains at the lower side of the old farm yard.
Broadband telephone service is available
from the Ireby Telephone Exchange located across the field 200 yards away.
Council refuse is collected every Friday and garden
waste and paper for recycling are collected on alternate Fridays.
The north western boundary of the Lake District National Park is at the edge of the Ireby village boundary, less than
1000 yards away. Keswick is 12 miles - and Bassenthwaite 5 miles away.
Facilities in the village include the adjacent Parish Church of St James (100 yds), a thriving C of E School (500 yds), the
Lion pub (400 yds) and almost limitless possibilities for walking, rambling and riding.
The Lake District
National Park and especially the John Peel Country, 'Back ‘O Skidda', is within a short drive or a local walk from the barns doorstep!
