Unconverted barn, with full planning permission in Caldbeck, near Carlisle, Cumbria
Barn for conversion which has full planning permission for conversion to three bedroom dwelling, with 2.4 acres of land in the village of Caldbeck, near Carlisle in Cumbria in the north eastern Lake District region
A rare opportunity to acquire one of the last barns with planning permission for conversion in the popular village of Caldbeck.
The planning is for a three bedroom dwelling and the property includes an adjoining 2.4 acre (or thereabouts) paddock.
The property is located in the north-eastern region of the Lake District and has easy access to the M6 and west coast main line (Carlisle 12 miles, Penrith 14 miles, and Keswick 12 miles).
The barn has full planning consent for conversion to a cosy three bedroom dwelling utilising the existing barn doors to drive through to a rear courtyard and garden area. There is adequate space to add a wing on the west side which would provide extra bedrooms and a large studio with fine views of the surrounding fells (STPP).
Situated at the top end of what was a small farmyard, the barn is attached to a small cottage on the south side and to a range of loose-boxes to form an attractive courtyard. There is an unrestricted right of way at all time for vehicles and pedestrians from the public road to the barn established by deed. One of the attached loose-boxes forms part of the property and in the proposed conversion plans is proposed as the kitchen together with the back door entrance.
Once converted, the property will enjoy superb unrestricted views over its fields to the Caldbeck fells. The barn is in a position well sheltered from the prevailing wind, on gently sloping ground and away from the danger of flooding. Being set back from the little used public road, the property is quiet in location and benefits from a sunny south-west facing aspect.
Immediately to the rear of the property is an area of 2.4 acres, or thereabouts, of excellent quality grazing land. The land compromises two enclosure, one of 1.67 acres and one of 0.73 acres and is ideally suited to a number of uses such as a pony paddock, for free range hens, for allotment and for general grazing. The land is mostly bounded by dry stone walls – an attractive feature of the area – which are generally in good order.
Although the land is included with the barn if it is not required, the vendor will retain the land and adjust the purchase price accordingly.
All services (telephone, electricity, mains water and public sewage) are within a few metres of the site.
The property is sold freehold with vacant possession on completion.
