WHY LOW MILL Pretty setting with direct access to Cumbria Way, a 70 mile walking route that starts in Ulverston near Morecambe Bay taking in outstanding countryside through the Lake District and Dalston, finishing in Carlisle. Dalston has an impressive range of local amenities. There is a Church Of England Primary School, Caldew Secondary School, a church, Co Op Convenience Store, butchers, sandwich shop, takeaway and building society. The village has a railway station and is on a bus route. The village hall hosts many societies and events as does the Showfield. The village green is beside the River Caldew where there are several riverside walks. 

DESCRIPTION The property is part of a small number of houses at the end of a no through road, accessed via a manual level crossing and about a mile from the centre of Dalston. Originally part of a water powered cotton spinning mill the property has been successfully altered to provide a spacious home over three floors. Occupying the corner of the building the property has a wonderful south and west facing aspect over its own generous grounds of around half an acre. As soon has you enter it soon becomes apparent that this property is geared for modern living. In particular the large open plan living/dining kitchen is a splendid and comfortable space for a large gathering. The room has a private dual aspect with doors to the side and rear gardens.  

The upper floors provide ample accommodation for a large family of those who love having guests to stay. Eight rooms offer flexible occupation including 2 bathrooms and up to 6 bedrooms, 5 of which are double. There are a number of possibilities to alter the layout including to provide another bathroom.  

THE ADJOINING PROPERTY

What a tremendous opportunity presents itself here particularly for those with strong DIY skills or development ambitions. This is a substantial building similar in the size to the house and also over three floors. Each floor has a gross internal area of around 57 sq m. Alteration work to date includes the provision of windows and drainage to septic tank. The building has planning (Carlisle City Planning reference 05/1123) for holiday let accommodation so further investment to complete the project will in turn provide an income. Alternatively complete and sell on the open market taking advantage of the growing trend for Airbnb. An application for a residential dwelling would need to planning approval, although the owners have been given an indication that in principle this would be acceptable.
