Thwaite Gate Farm, Carnforth, Lancashire

Guide price

Bedrooms: 3

Superbly located livestock farm sat in a plot of 46.38 acres (18.77 hectares), 3 bedroom farmhouse, and range of traditional farm buildings offering a wide-range of alternate uses and development potential (subject to planning). Situated a small distance from Carnforth the site is excellent location to the A6 and M6.

Thwaite Gate Farm has traditionally been used as a livestock farm. One of the highlights of the property is the substantial range of traditional barns located within the farmyard, which have the added advantage of being separated from the farmhouse and are situated adjacent to the Lancaster Canal, with views over and also surrounded by the agricultural land, as shown on the plan to the rear of these particulars.

The property enjoys access over a shared private driveway leading off the A6, over the Lancaster Canal. The driveway leads into the farmyard, with the attached farmhouse, range of buildings and 46.38 acres (18.77 hectares) of permanent grassland. Full information regarding the right of way and the contribution towards the upkeep may be obtained from the Kendal office of Armitstead Barnett.

The farmhouse requires a full programme of modernisation, refurbishment and updating, but offers scope for extension and alteration if required. The property has a wealth of character which can be retained in any sympathetic development.

The farmhouse is accessed from a side door which leads directly into a kitchen, with a window to side, a character Range cooker, door through to living room with small flight of stairs, leading to a front snug.

The additional set of stairs from the living room leads to the first floor on which can be found 3 good sized bedrooms, 2 further store rooms and family bathroom. The house also has a cellar which is accessed from the kitchen. To the side of the house can also be found a log store, wash house and separate WC.

The farm buildings at Thwaite Gate Farm are centred around two large traditional stone barns, part of which are two storey, which clearly offer potential for alternative use subject to gaining the necessary planning consent.

The barns are set in a U-shape and are a good distance apart, which aids the ability for them to be changed into different usage. Overall the barns offer in excess of 500sq.m on the ground floor alone.

Most recently the barns have been used for cattle, sheep and produce storage. The barns also have the added advantage of a cobbled yard, with the majority of the barns being set under slate roof.
