[M]ichael CL Hodgson has this week announced the sale of a delightful Lake District property and also a unique plot of land with high amenity value.
Borwick Fold and Borwick Fold Tarn and Grazing Land are being offered for sale by public auction at the Town Hall, Kendal, on Friday 6th October at 2:30 pm.
Located in an idyllic rural setting just two miles south-east of Windermere, Borwick Fold is a superb former farm steading with a range of modern and traditional buildings offering development potential. The substantial six bedroom former farmhouse is brimming with character and the property offers exceptional views over the Lake District Fells including the Langdale Pikes, Pavey Ark and Crinkle Crags.
Borwick Fold is being auctioned with a guide price of £650k – £675k. Included in the sale are two neighbouring paddocks amounting to over four acres and as such is the perfect dwelling for hobby farmers, horse owners or those looking to leave the ‘rat race’ and begin a new life in the heart of the Lake District.
Commenting on the sale of Borwick Fold Farm, Agent Mark Barrow said: “Borwick Fold is an excellent example of a traditional Lake District small holding. This is a fantastic and extremely unique opportunity for hobby farmers, horse owners or investors wanting an attractive and substantial Lake District retreat with plenty of potential.”
Also featuring in the public auction at Kendal Town Hall, on Friday 6th October, is Borwick Fold Tarn and Grazing Land. Extending to almost 22 acres of productive grazing land, in one single enclosure, this plot really is one of a kind. Located in a prime Lake District (UNESCO World Heritage Site) setting, just two miles from Windermere, the land holds fishing rights which are included in the sale. There is also plenty of sporting potential with some woodland, scrub and an ideal undulating profile.
The land gently slopes down to the north which is where the tarn can be found in the valley hollow. This has historically been stocked with fish, particularly brown trout and carp. It has a manmade sluice to the west to control water retention and also has a manmade island which is accessible by a bridge. This is ideal for those with a passion for fishing or duck rearing and flighting.
“In the past year alone rural property sales in this attractive location have brought some very good prices. We have experienced demand from a variety of buyers from neighbouring farmers to investors, to those simply looking for a lifestyle change.
“Both the smallholding and the land are in fantastic condition and ready to walk in to so we are expecting a good level of interest.”
