About this property

  • The site is presently arranged in its original agricultural layout, with a number of barns and outbuildings together with a paddock area that is presently laid to grassland. The existing barns are constructed of stone under a pitched roof. The property briefly comprises a range of traditional farm buildings together with a greenfield paddock to the north. The barns are of traditional construction being stone built with a pitched roof lying within the Coniston Cold Conservation area. The strong aesthetic appeal of the buildings together with the rural and picturesque setting lends the site for a sympathetic redevelopment scheme to residential use. In 2009 the site received the benefit of Full Planning Approval for a scheme of 14 units, comprising a conversion of the existing barns into 3 dwellings alongside the new development of 11 dwellings. This planning permission has been enacted by the landowner via initial works to the existing barns and upgrades to the site’s access. The council have affirmed the extant planning status in correspondence, stating that the works undertaken constitute a commencement of the approved development. This correspondence is available upon request.
