Reception Rooms: 3
The sale of Brown Howe represents a unique opportunity to acquire an excellent combination of residential and commercial premises consisting of a highly desirable plot with a substantial and well proportioned three bedroom detached house, former filling station and shop plus a former repair garage. The house is spread over three floors and provides four excellent reception rooms including the lower ground floor which can also be accessed externally via the filling station/shop. There could also be the possibility of a development opportunity, subject to relevant planning.
The commercial element includes what has been a well established filling station, shop and separate garage. Although the property requires some modernisation the sale represents a superb opportunity for multiple businesses with living accommodation.
The sale is due to retirement; though previously the whole package has been let on a long term basis both as a whole and individually. Although the filling station is currently closed it is centrally located in an ideal trading position adjacent to the A592 in the centre of Glenridding village which is on the south west shores of Ullswater.
There are local amenities including shops, pubs and local nursery/primary school are all on hand as well as some fine sailing on the lake and excellent fell and mountain walks on the doorstep. Penrith/M6 (North) and Windermere to the south are both around 12 miles away.
