Guide price

Bedrooms: 3
OVERVIEW Set within the Lake District National Park, Rock Cottage is a pretty three bedroom attached cottage on the fringe of Low Newton. Larger than expected, the cottage offers great potential to family buyers, however the possibilities continue externally with planning permission for two x three bedroom detached houses within the generous garden. The cottage offers two receptions rooms, a dining kitchen plus a utility room, with the first floor having three bedrooms (1 ensuite) and a large family bathroom. Character features have been retained with some beams to ceilings, window seats and the addition of woodburners to the two reception rooms. The garden space currently wraps around the property with a large workshop/garage, patio and terraced lawns. Footings have been created for a replacement garage as part of the planning permission. The new houses will be subject to local occupancy requirements - full plans and details are available.

EXTERNAL Double gates lead from the road into a good sized gravelled parking and turning area. Existing larger detached block built workshop/garage with external door. If buyers wished to proceed with the planning permission in place, this garage would be demolished with the footings of a new garage already in place, this in turn allows access to the new houses. The garden extends to the rear and is a tiered lawn area with a patio close to the house. External lighting and tap. The building plots are located at the rear of the property on the banked area.

BUILDING PLOTS Planning permission was granted in 2012 to demolish existing workshop/garage and make access to proposed two dwellings for local occupancy. Foundation excavation was carried out prior to the lapse of this permission and the Lake District National Park Authority has agreed this amounts to material commencement of the planning ref 7/2012/5355. On this basis the development can continue in accordance with the permission.
