Ulpha Old School has been converted in recent years to create a fantastic contemporary cottage property with the added advantage of a superb space that was the old school, with high ceiling, and fabulous views over the Duddon Valley.
There is a 'live/work' condition attached to the planning, so this would be an ideal property for anyone needing the space to work from home. It lends itself to a good number of uses, with inside and outside space. There is also a large workshop facility with three-phase electricity, a large garden with raised beds and a lovely wildlife pond.
The location is super, the River Duddon is literally a stones throw away (far enough not to flood!), with numerous walks right from your doorstep.
Travel along the A590 in a westerly direction, taking the exit at Greenodd, then join the A5092.
Continue along this road, past Foxfield until reaching Duddon Bridge. Turn right at the traffic lights here and continue along the road (signposted to Ulpha) until reaching Ulpha Bridge after just over 3 miles. School House/Ulpha School is situated on the right, before the bridge.
The Duddon Valley is arguably one of the most
picturesque and peaceful areas within the Lake District National Park. The Old School enjoys an impressive backdrop of the fells and superb westerly and southerly views across the valley. The frequently used expression; “Location, Location, Location" certainly applies.
The nearest market town of Broughton-in-Furness is approximately four and a half miles away where there is a good range of shops and amenities, with the nearby railway station at Foxfield providing excellent links on the Furness line.
The gardens and grounds are extensive with raised beds, a wildlife pond, in all extending to approximately 3/4 of an acre.
Mains water and electricity are connected to the property. There are photovoltaic panels to the roof and ground source heat.
