Occupying an elevated position off the Kendal Road at Fellside with the design of the house aimed to maximise its prominent hillside location taking full advantage of the sun and views which stretch over the village to Lake Windermere and high fells beyond. Situated on a private drive on the edge of the popular tourist honey pot of Bowness-on-Windermere, in a quiet yet convenient position just 10 minutes walk to Lake Windermere and the centre of the village which offers a wide range of shops, cafes, restaurants and local amenities and also within easy reach are Windermere Marina, Royal Windermere Yacht Club and Windermere Golf Club together with a choice of good public and private schooling at all levels.
Directions From the centre of Bowness village turn onto Kendal Road opposite St Martins Church, continue past the entrances to Belsfield Hotel and Burnside Hotel, continuing around the bend taking the left drive into Fellside, signposted as a private drive. Continue up the driveway and as you approach the main house at the top take the lower driveway to the right for South Fellside. This gives access to the private drive sweeping around to a turning point for the building plots and access to the building plot is half way up the drive on the left hand side.
Details Opportunity to acquire a freehold building plot with permission granted for the construction of a new detached 300m² dwelling, with four en-suite bedrooms, cloak room with WC, study and two large open plan living spaces comprising a dining kitchen and living room, separate utility room with WC and integral double garage. Full architect drawing plans plus building regulation drawings are also available.
The proposed dwelling is accessed off the Kendal Road south of Bowness on private drive known as Fellside, with a new vehicular driveway from the original gentlemen’s residence in place giving access to the proposed dwelling. The plot is nestled in a superb elevated position in the gardens above the original gentlemen’s residence with an adjacent plot behind which will be occupied by the owners of the site and the original house who are looking for somebody of like mind to purchase the land with the same dream, to build their own home and become their neighbour. Low Fellside occupies a total plot area of 1209m² ⅓ of an acre with a magnificent view north and west of Lake Windermere and to the Lakeland fells beyond.
The plot has the benefit of installed mains foul drainage, electric, BT line and water which are all ducted to the site and ready to be connected by the utility companies once the house is built. The access road which is to be private is constructed but not finished completely to avoid damage by construction traffic while the houses are built. The tarmac finish will be added at no cost to the purchaser once the house is completed. The owners will retain ownership of the road and the purchaser of the plot will be responsible for the maintenance of the road marked in blue.
Planning consent was granted in January 2014 but has been implemented as a result of being on the same planning application as High Fellside House which is currently being built. Details and plans can be found on the Lake District National Planning website under the Reference No. 7/2014/5048. The full consent is for a detached two storey 4 bedroom dwelling and is subject to a restriction known as a local occupancy condition in the form of a 106 agreement with the LDNPA and this means that it can only be occupied by somebody who fits their criteria. These conditions are commonplace on any new dwelling constructed within the Lake District National Park and means that the purchaser would either wish to have this as their main residence and would need to fulfil the criteria or for an occupant who rents on a long let to do the same also.
Tenure Freehold. Council tax band is to be assessed on completion of the dwelling.
