Property Details

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.

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.
