There remains scope within the current design to create amendments to the footprint of the property.

An opportunity to build your own substantial 4/5 bedroom property in the picturesque village of Gilgarran, with a choice of two remaining plots, both with full planning permission granted and both with laid foundations which secures the planning consent and will save the new owners significant build costs.

Gilgarran is a quiet, pretty village surrounded by open countryside and glimpses of Lakeland Fell views and sits between the Cumbrian West Coast towns and the Lake District National Park. Workington, Whitehaven and Cockermouth are between 5 and 7 miles away and here you will find a wide range of local and high street shops, bars and restaurants. Head inland to the east and you come to the National Park with the Lakes of Loweswater and Ennerdale being the most readily accessed.

Great road and rail connections are readily accessible with the A595 and Harrington rail station connecting the area to the rest of Cumbria. There are a couple of primary schools at nearby Dean and Distington, and excellent secondary schools at Cockermouth and Keswick. The highly rated Energy Coast UTC secondary school at Lillyhall is just 2 miles away which specialises in engineering education and training.

The M6 is an accessible 40-minute drive away, and provides direct access to the rest of the country.

The Plot

Gilgarran Park was the site of a former Shooting Estate until the mid-20th century and the plot backs onto the historic woodlands. Plot 3 extends to approximately 513 sqm with a central village location. Full planning permission is granted for a four/five bedroomed detached property and garden, and with foundations already in place for the creation of a generous 150 sqm of living space. This represents a significant invested cost and it is still possible at this stage to alter the layout of the living space to create for example, a further bedroom or family kitchen/diner should you wish; any alteration to the existing foundations “footprint” could be discussed with the local planning authority with the added benefit of no time constraints on any planning amendments.

With future changes expected for the minimum efficiency levels of UK properties and the additional costs this will bring for house owners, this a great opportunity to build your own, high efficiency new home and invest in a modern home for your future.

Mains water/ wastewater/ electricity/telephone/broadband connection is readily available next to/onsite with the reassurance and cost saving benefit that the vendor owns the village roadway in order to complete straightforward and economical service connections.

The plot fronts on to a well-maintained village roadway with peaceful woodland views to the rear. Further detailed plans and drawings can be made available to prospective buyers.

Planning - Full planning permission is in place as is building regulations approval for the foundation plans dated March 2022.The details can be found on the Copeland /Cumberland Planning Department website using the reference 4/20/2260/0R1


Approaching from the A595 between Great Clifton and Whitehaven, take the exit at the roundabout next to the Toyota dealership which leads into Distington, then take the left-hand turn after less than half a mile when signposted for Pica and Gilgarran. Follow the road past the crematorium and then travel further up the hill, go past the “Gilgarran” left sign post, past the “Pica” right sign post, and when you see the sign for “Leading to Gilgarran Park” turn left onto this roadway. The plots numbered 3 & 4 are located further along this road and are shortly after the central "roundabout" and are on the left-hand side in an open cleared area with a metal gate.
