Full Planning Permission has been obtained in April 2018 to develop the barns sympathetically into four 4 bedroomed houses with the opportunity to purchase part or all of the land available.

The range of barns and buildings attached to the farmhouse could also offer the opportunity for conversion (with planning consent), for a range of other uses such as equestrian development, small business development within a rural setting or smallholder to become self sufficient but with the benefit of having a ready renovated house to move straight into whilst developing a business on site.

Although set in a rural location the property is close to the pretty market town of Ulverston but within 40 minutes to the M6 motorway and 30 minutes to the heart of the Lake District.

Garage and Workshop

6.10m x 2.40m (20'0" x 7'10")
