Full Description

Site with Outline Planning Permission for two detached houses, with frontage to Mell Fell View Road and distant views towards the Lake District Fells. The site extends to 0.273 acres and is located within the Lake District Park (UNESCO World Heritage Site)

and enjoys picturesque countryside views. Available in Two Lots or as a Whole.

The site is shown edged red on the sale plan.

The proposed site as a whole, has the benefit of outline planning permission for two dwellings as well as the associated gardens, parking and access.   

The land benefits from a slightly elevated position from Mell Fell View road with particularly fine views in a northerly direction towards the fells from the site.   

The northerly and westerly boundary of the site are currently. The successful purchaser(s) will be required to erect and maintain a suitable stockproof fence where indicated by the inward facing T-marks.

Plot 1 - 0.134 acres
Plot 2 - 0.139 acres

The site has the benefit of outline Planning Permission under the Lake District National Park Authority Ref No: 7/2017/3108, for the erection of two dwellings with associated gardens and parking and access.

The application was submitted on 18 August 2017 and the Notice of Outline Planning Permission is dated 3 November 2017.

A copy of the Planning Permission is included with these particulars.

Potential buyers attention is drawn to the Conditions, particularly Condition 3, which stipulates that the dwelling houses shall not be occupied otherwise than by a person with a local connection. The definition of a person with 'local connection' and the extent of the area defined as 'Locality' is set out within Condition 3.

The other important Condition is Condition 1 which requires an application for approval of the reserved matters to be made no later than three years from the date of the permission.

The development permitted shall begin no later than two years from the date of approval of the reserved matters.

Mell Fell View Road is located on the south-western outskirts of the village of Penruddock, within the Lake District National Park.

From junction 40 of the M6 motorway head west towards Keswick. At the roundabout continue straight on the A66 for approximately 5 miles, until you reach a right hand turn signposted Penruddock. Take this turning and on entry to the village take the left hand turn onto Mell Fell View Road. Follow this road for approximately 300 meters and the plot is on the right hand side denoted by our sale board.

The sale plan with these particulars indicates the precise location and extent in red.

There is no existing gate in the southerly boundary therefore for the purpose of viewing the land access can be derived from the field gate 200m up the road as denoted by the red X marked on the attached sale plan.

The site is not currently connected to mains services however, mains water and electricity are understood to be available nearby. Prospective buyers must make their own enquiries with regard to connections to services.

Freehold. Vacant possession on completion.

The properties will be accessed directly from Mell Fell View Road. Should the two sites be sold separately it is likely a single shared entrance will be required over the south-east corner of Plot 1 and therefore a right of access shall be reserved in favour of Plot 2.

The site may be inspected at any reasonable time, provided a copy of these particulars of sale are in possession.   View on foot from the Mell Fell View Road entrance gate marked X on the attached Sale Plan.
