Situated in the heart of Beckermet village is Beck Brow, a 6 bedroom detached farmhouse with adjoining 2 story, sandstone barn with an abundance of external space, a rarity for a property so centrally located within the village.

Beckbrow has been owned by the same family for many years, the property is currently used as a private family home and adjoining barn for storage. With the correct planning permission the barn could be transformed into an additional large spacious dwelling. At the far end of the property is another storage area which could accommodate an additional standalone property with the appropriate planning approval.

Accommodation of the farmhouse briefly comprises of two reception rooms, kitchen, large walk in larder, utility room and access to a large barn storage room to the ground floor. Upstairs in the farmhouse you will find 6 double bedrooms and a modern family bathroom. The adjoining sandstone barn currently houses an office, downstairs toilet, multiple storage spaces and the entirety of the upstairs is one large open room.

Situated on a plot which is just short of 1 acre, Beck Brow has multiple external 'areas' which can be comprised of the following. Large driveway for multiple vehicles, builders yard, patio seating area, meticulously kept area of garden which include flower beds, vegetable patches, shrubbery and lawned areas, vast hen keeping area and many areas currently being used for external storage purposes.

Whilst Beck Brow requires modernization and refurbishment, the opportunity to create a forever home, in a stunning, semi-rural location is an exciting prospect which we would urge clients to consider. The potential for further development at Beck Brow is sure to peak many potential purchasers' interest. The property is most likely to appeal to families or buyers with development interests. The barn offers various options for home working, business use, storage and car parking/storage. Subject to planning consent, it has potential for development into ancillary accommodation for dependent relatives or generating an income as self-catering holiday accommodation or further property. Viewing is highly recommended and offers are welcomed.

The pretty village of Beckermet lies some three miles south of Egremont and is less than five miles from St Bees Head Heritage Coast. Whitehaven (10 miles north) is an interesting port town with some exceptional architecture, and Cockermouth having strong associations with Wordsworth is approximately 20 miles north of the village. All of the western valleys of the Lake District National Park are within easy reach together with the beautiful lakes and mountains of Ennerdale and Wastwater.

Mains gas, electricity, water and drainage. Gas central heating and single glazing installed throughout. Telephone line installed subject to BT regulations.
