The village has a traditional post office, which also serves as a village store and benefits from two good pubs, The Queens Head and The Mortal Man. There is a train and bus station at the northern end of Windermere providing local train services to Kendal and Oxenholme Station which is on the main North West Virgin Train Line providing easy access to Edinburgh, Manchester and London Euston as well as regular bus services.
The plot has planning consent from the Lake District National Park reference: 7/2020/5295 for a contemporary detached two storey house comprising two bedrooms with ensuites, open plan living area with balcony, conservatory and cloaks room within around 120m² of space designed to take in the stunning views across to High Street to the East and Wansfell to the West. The plot equates to 260m² which will offer ample space to create an off road parking area and gardens or patio area. The existing garage was built by the current owners with a view to development in the future, therefore a lot of the basic foundation works have already been done and it is in very good order and it is thought that there is a good supply of local stone and slate for the construction.
The building plot is accessed via a private single vehicle accessway leading from Scot Brow and forms part of a small hamlet at the northern extent of Troutbeck. Scot Brow connects with the A592 a short distance to the north east which travels north and south connecting with Ambleside Road (A591) and Windermere approximately 3 miles and 5 miles to the south/south east respectively and north to the summit of Kirkstone Pass approximately 3 miles away continuing to Glenridding, Pooley Bridge and Penrith.
Accommodation will briefly comprise;
Entrance vestibule with adjacent cloakroom with WC, conservatory facing west over the garden/ patio area, two double bedrooms both with French doors onto a patio area and both with en suite shower room facilities.
Open plan living area and kitchen with sliding doors out to a balcony and gallery.
Interested parties should take note of the local occupancy restriction attached to the planning and should ensure that they qualify the conditions to be able to occupy the property on a permanent basis.
The subject site benefits from planning permission (Ref: 7/2020/5295) which can be found on the Lake District National Park planning portal. The site lies within an attractive private setting and the build of the proposed dwelling will need to reflect the existing high quality, character and setting of this exclusive settlement. A material start has been undertaken and therefore the planning permission has commenced.
Mains electricity and water are within close proximity to the site. Drainage is now connected to the neighbouiring septic tank. Purchasers are advised to make their own enquiries to their own satisfaction in this regard and connections of services will be the responsibility of the purchaser.
