Boathouse Site with Jetty Offers Scenic Sailing Haven
Stunning Lake District National Park site for a Boathouse development with Jetty, on the shores of Lake Windemere
H&H Land & Estates bring to market an incredibly unusual Wet Dock Boathouse site with jetty, on the idyllic shores of Lake Windermere within the Lake District UNESCO World Heritage Site. With Planning Permission for a replacement Boathouse and Jetty, this 18.3m x 5.5m site is perfect for buyers seeking a peaceful lakeside development project in one of the most beautiful settings of the UK.
Tucked away on the south westerly shores of the Lake, and with private access, the boathouse and jetty are located in a peaceful bay on one of the Lake’s quietest stretches. The Planning Permission dated 14th May 2002, is to ‘replace the existing Boathouse and Jetty with a new stone clad Boathouse and timber jetty.’
Located just north of Lakeside, about 1.5 miles north of Newby Bridge and with stunning easterly views towards the iconic ‘Gummers Howe,’ the property is being offered with a guide price of between £180,000-220,000. The Boathouse site will be sold by public auction at The Castle Green Hotel, Kendal, on Friday 25th September, 2.00 pm.
According to research conducted in 2019 by the Royal Yachting Association, more people than ever before are participating in watersports, and this trend has been increasing over the last three years. With several marinas and many Sailing and Windsurfing centres found on its shores, Lake Windermere is one of the Lake District’s prime destinations for sailing and watersports today. Whether you are a kayaker, windsurfer, or keen to enter the world of sailing, this site offers a highly desirable opportunity to secure your own section of the UK’s longest lake.
Colin Tomlinson, Managing Director for H&H Land & Estates, comments on the sale:
“The Wet Dock boathouse site and jetty is a truly unique opportunity. The location is incredibly beautiful and the boathouse site itself offers the exciting prospect of developing your own tranquil, lakeside property. We hope that the site will really appeal to those seeking outdoor space in stunning, peaceful settings, and highly recommend an inspection to fully appreciate the site’s wonderful attributes and virtues.”
A material start on the development, in compliance of Condition 1 of the permission has been made. To discuss and make any enquiries regarding the development of the site, it is recommended that potential buyers contact the Planning Authority offices at the Lake District National Park Authority.
