About 1.195 Acres (0.483 Ha)
Site with Outline Planning Permission for three detached houses, with frontage to McIver Lane.
Adjacent paddock to the north with access from Lake Road.


The site is shown edged red on the sale plan.

The proposed site layout plan is also with these particulars indicating the position of each of the three dwellings and the location of the access from McIver Lane, which is part of the Planning Consent.   

To the west of the site of the three dwellings, is a main sewer with a 3m easement protection zone.

The land slopes gradually upwards from McIver Lane and there are particularly fine views in a northerly direction towards the fells from the northerly and easterly parts of the site.   

The northerly boundary of the site with Planning Permission is defined by the recently constructed post and wire fence.

The land to the north has the benefit of rights of access at all times and for all purposes over the driveway shown brown on the Sale Plan. This provides an alternative access into the residential site, subject to Planning Permission for any proposed access route across the land. This enclosure may have potential ‘Hope Value’ for future residential development.

The extent of the site is defined on the ground with fences, walls and hedges.

Extremely pleasant and convenient location, just beyond Waterhead.
Situated west of Lake Road, the arterial route from the south into the town.
Frontage to McIver Lane, from which the access into the site will be constructed.
Paddock/amenity land adjacent to the residential site with potential ‘Hope Value’ for future development.
The paddock adjoins Hayes Garden Centre site with the benefit of access over the private lane from Lake Road.
A few minutes walk to Ambleside town centre and the shores of Lake Windermere, in the heart of the National Park.
Planning consent for three dwellings, subject to occupancy conditions.
All mains services available nearby.
Slightly elevated site above McIver Lane with a fine southerly aspect.
Rare opportunity for an 'exclusive' residential development in this popular and busy town.

From a southerly direction, via Windermere, at the traffic lights at Waterhead, continue straight on along Lake Road. Just beyond the slight left hand bend in the road, McIver Lane is the first junction on the left.

The sale plan with these particulars indicates the precise location and extent in red.

Alternatively, if approaching from a northerly direction from the town centre, after passing Hayes Garden Centre on the right, the entrance to McIver Lane is the first junction on the right.

There is no existing gate in the southerly boundary of the land from McIver Lane. The adjoining land to the north has access over the private drive shaded brown on the Sale Plan.

McIver Lane is just north of the road junction at Waterheaad, and south of Hayes Garden Centre.

The Lane slopes gradually down from Lake Road, and continues to the road leading from Waterhead round the outskirts of Ambleside, providing access for the Langdales and Coniston.

Mains water, electricity, gas and drainage are understood to be available nearby. Prospective buyers must make their own enquiries with regard to connections to services.


The site has the benefit of outlined Planning Permission under the Lake District National Park Authority Ref No: 7/2014/5432, for the erection of three detached houses and access.

The application was submitted on 27 June 2014 and the Planning Permission is dated 3 October 2014.

A copy of the Planning Permission is included with these particulars.

Potential buyers attention is drawn to the Conditions, particularly Condition 3, which stipulates that the dwelling houses shall not be occupied otherwise than by a person with a local connection. The definition of a person with 'local connection' is set out within Condition 3.

The extent of the area defined as ‘Locality’ is shown shaded green on the plan herewith, being ‘Central and South East’, being the plan incorporated in the Housing Provision Supplementary Planning Document, Adopted March 2014.

The other important Condition is Condition 1 which requires an application for approval of the reserved matters to be made no later than three years from the date of the permission.

The development permitted shall begin not later than two years from the date of approval of the reserved matters.

Potential buyers must make their own enquiries at the Planning Authority’s offices, details below, to establish any future residential development within the enclosure to the north of the site, included in the sale.
