At a time when access to the great outdoors is valued more than ever, this is a rare opportunity to own a property in the Lake District. Located in the beautiful Lorton Valley, unrestricted views of the neighbouring fells make this a wonderful, Lakeland retreat. The view from the property has to be experienced to be fully appreciated. Iconic fells of the Western Lake District including, Whiteside, High Stile, Red Pike, Mellbreak and Fellbarrow dominate the landscape. Local lakes include Loweswater, Crummock and Loweswater.
Occupying a great location in the sought-after village of High Lorton, this three bedroom property is ready to be modernised to meet your individual needs. The current owners have already secured planning permission from the Lake District Special Planning Board for a major re-vamp of the property. A copy of their extensive redesign is attached. This design establishes the concept of extensions to the front, side and rear of the property and may be suitable for alteration and re-submission.
The property has a good-sized lounge and kitchen, two double bedrooms, a single bedroom and wet room. Most rooms command great views of the fells over open countryside. A degree of modernisation would be expected, even if the current footprint of the property was retained. Externally, the large rear garden offers lots of space for development, whilst still offering a substantial outside space.
A Local Occupancy Restriction is in place on this property, part of a positive strategy to protect local communities. A copy of the policy is attached.
In summary, a development property in a fabulous location with incredible views in the beautiful Lorton Valley. The property is in need of modernisation and has the potential to be a truly stunning family home. Early viewing is highly recommended.
