Property Details

A unique and rare development opportunity to purchase a three bedroom detached property with superb potential. Located just south of the centre of this highly popular Lakeland village being only a short level walk away.

Gatesgarth is a deceptively spacious detached bungalow built in the 1960’s from a non standard construction and has been held in the family throughout. The property is ideally suited for development including a replacement dwelling subject to relevant planning permission. Although presently a single storey dwelling there appears scope to create a dormer bungalow/two storey property which will have lovely far reaching country views, possibly towards Coniston Water from the upper floor. The plot offers numerous permutations related to replacement dwelling scheme and provide the rare opportunity to create a dream home.

Conveniently located only a short level walk to the centre of Coniston. There is a lively and active community and a wide range of amenities, shops, banks, post office, churches, bowling and tennis clubs. Coniston is famous for its connections to Donald Campbell, John Ruskin and other Lakeland poets. There are endless fell and country walks from the door step and the shores of Coniston Water are only a short walk away down the lane.

Please note all offers are invited to be submitted by Friday 16th December 2016, including all terms and conditions. Please be aware it is possible the vendor may accept an offer prior to this date.
