Description

An outstanding opportunity to acquire highly sought and rarely offered strategically sited prime amenity land with sound investment value. The property enjoys spectacular panoramic views across Lake Windermere towards the Langdales and lies in close proximity to a number of prestigious hotels and also to a variety of water-based and other recreational facilities. The land, which originally formed part of the renowned Briery Close Arabian Stud, extends to 6.88 acres / 2.78 hectares approx. It lies within the Lake District National Park and is situated in a tranquil setting midway between Windermere and Ambleside. The land is favoured with breathtaking panoramic views right across Lake Windermere towards the Langdale Pikes, Wordsworth’s “five solemn pikes of Langdale” which are among the most distinctive and instantly recognisable mountain peaks in the Lake District.
The main access to the property is directly from the main A591 Windermere to Ambleside trunk road. There is also a secondary access from Holbeck Lane (coloured yellow on the attached Site Plan), a metalled minor road which branches off the A591. Holbeck Lane leads up to the village of Troutbeck (designated as a special Conservation Area and containing the classic 17th century National Trust property of Town End), the scenic Troutbeck valley and a network of bridleways close-by in the surrounding hills.

The luxury four-star Low Wood Hotel, which has a lawned shoreline onto Lake Windermere and also a leisure club, indoor swimming pool, lakeside marina and watersports centre, is within close walking distance to the land being less than a mile away as is another eminent four-star hotel, Holbeck Ghyll. Four further prestigious three-star hotels, Langdale Chase, Merewood, Cragwood and Briery Wood are also within one mile and walking distance of the property.

White Cross Bay Leisure Park, Marina & Water Sports Centre, again only one mile from the property, has 60 acres of wooded parkland.

General Information

The land is bounded by post and rail wood fencing and by stone walls.

The primary access to the land is afforded directly off the main A591 main road through a metal field gate of standard single width. There is a second access point at the higher end of the field off Holbeck Lane through a wooden field gate

The field, os 7886, provides pasture grazing land suitable for horses, sheep and other livestock. There are mature trees on the land which provide plentiful shade in the summer. The field is currently let to a local farmer on an annual grazing license which will expire upon the sale of the land.

There is a small area of woodland of 0.74 acres, fenced off from the pastureland, which borders the Holbeck.

Tenure

The land is sold freehold with vacant possession available on completion.
Services


A metered trough fed by mains water is located in the lower part of the field close to the main A591 road. There is also a natural water supply in the form of a stream which emerges onto the land from an underground pipe at the far northern side of the field and then proceeds across towards the Holbeck
Local developments


The owners of the land situated on the opposite side of the A591, directly across from the land currently being offered herein for sale, have received planning permission approval for the building of a 600-delegate £4 million Convention Centre. Work on a large car park on this site has been completed to preserve the approved planning permission status. Once this Centre commences operation in the future the value of the land now being offered for sale is likely to significantly benefit from the enhanced activity which will ensue from this Centre.
Future prospects

Well-sited prime agricultural land in the Windermere area with substantial amenity value, good main road access, natural and mains water, in close proximity to renowned hotels and recreational facilities and with a superb vista across Lake Windermere is keenly sought but rarely offered, being invariably tightly held by local businesses, farmers, residents and other classes of investors. The Vendor has held this land for in excess of 40 years and over the past five years has sold other similar plots nearby at full market prices which attracted keen local and national interest. The secure base value and sound capital appreciation of prime land reinforces its investment appeal.
