This beautifully restored Westmorland farmhouse still has lots of potential for development
Where: Mirk Howe, Crosthwaite, near Kendal
What: A real Lakeland gem. Hidden away from view, Mirk Howe is a fabulous package of a beautifully restored Westmorland farm house with a substantial range of sound outbuildings including a large stone barn with planning consents to develop in part.
Inside: The farmhouse has undergone a comprehensive programme of renovation and refurbishment, carefully designed by the present owners who have used high quality fittings and finishes throughout to create a very comfortable home retaining much of the style of the original property. The versatile layout gives plenty of reception space with oak floors, beams and log burning stoves together with four good bedrooms.
Outside: Set on the edge of the village of Crosthwaite, gently elevated, and within 37 acres of meadow and pasture, it enjoys excellent far reaching 360 degree views with the main house having a sunny south westerly aspect.
The extensive range of outbuildings offer an opportunity to further develop Mirk Howe. The large stone and slate four bay barn already has valid planning consent to convert either into an office suite or an apartment for relatives. Further development could be possible subject to approval by the planning authority.
In addition to the stone barn, there is an attached south facing greenhouse and adjacent range of sound modern farm buildings with good access from the farmyard and this could be suitable for conversion to a range of loose boxes and stabling.
