Is this the most scenic plot for sale in the UK?

26th June 2017

A rare opportunity has arisen to purchase a magnificent Windermere lakeside plot and boat house, benefitting from planning permission for a replacement dry dock and dayroom.

Sail and explore, disappear into the woodland along the frontage to Lake Windermere. An extremely rare opportunity has arisen for someone to acquire a unique property with planning permission for replacement dry dock and dayroom on the easterly shores of this iconic Lake District Lake.  The property is being sold by way of a public auction by our sister company and selling agents Michael CL Hodgson at the Town Hall Kendal on Tuesday 11th July with a guide price of £190,000 – £220,000.

The property presents a once in a life- time opportunity for someone to purchase their own small piece of The Lake District and develop their own majestic Lake Windermere hideaway.

The plot is situated within one of the most sought after stretches of Lake Windermere’s frontage, just south of the iconic Storrs Hall and benefits from superb westerly views and wonderful evening sunsets across the lake.  The existing dayroom itself has a sweet charm to it, albeit in need of renovation.  Alternatively the current planning permission includes provisions for a replacement Dayroom/Kitchen, Entrance Porch, Balcony, and Dry Dock. The whole site extends to about 0.06 of an acre with a frontage of about 17ft to Lake Windermere and a shared parking area, of which ownership of part is included in the sale.

Ahead of the Auction, selling agent Mark Barrow said: “We really cannot stress profusely enough, how unique a sale this is. Rarely, if at all do we see such a tremendous plot of land in such a magnificent location come to the open market. The huge advantage is that it has planning approval and direct access on foot from the A592 and parking area”.

So for any interested purchaser it is worth noting that they are not just purchasing a plot they are purchasing a unique retreat that that they and their family can enjoy for many years to come, maybe even for generations”.

Nestled in the easterly shores of Lake Windermere, about two miles south of Bowness-on- Windermere the Boathouse blends naturally into the woodland surrounds and has excellent access to Newby Bridge Road. The planning particulars and documents can be publicly viewed here using Planning Ref:  7/2015/5265

To conclude Mark says: “Those looking to spend their summers down on the lake, without a care in the world, would do well to snap up this golden opportunity.”
