Howgate is situated some 11 miles northwest of the city of Carlisle in an area of outstanding natural beauty in north Cumbria. The dwelling occupies a rural yet accessible position and offers the purchasers an opportunity to acquire a small scale agricultural or equestrian holding.

HOWGATE COTTAGE & GARDEN GROUNDS

Howgate has been very well maintained over the years with the current owners having modestly extended, providing comfortable family accommodation. However, the subjects would lend themselves to further development, given that the dwelling could be extended further, subject to the necessary consents being obtained. The recent addition of a new agricultural / general purpose building gives this property the scope to develop any small scale agricultural / equestrian or other rural based enterprise.

THE LAND

The location of the property is such that all services are easily accessible at the busy market town of Longtown, the Borders City of Carlisle and the charming historic town of Brampton. The proximity of the M6 Motorway and Carlisle airport, Howgate is within commuting distance of all major centres. It is noted, that scheduled flights to London are due to commence on a daily basis in the summer of 2018.

This area of Cumbria enjoys one of the most varied and picturesque landscapes within England and this is a distinctly rural county where agriculture and tourism thrive to form the backbone of the local economy.

OUTSIDE
Howgate Cottage is surrounded by its own mature garden grounds which are laid down to lawns with mature shrubs, specimen trees and flower beds. To the side and rear of the property there is parking available for several vehicles. To the rear exists a timber workshop / hobby room which benefits from electricity laid in.

THE GRAZING PADDOCKS
There are four specific grazing paddocks, which are well fenced and lend themselves to any type of equestrian or agricultural usage. The land is at present all down to grass for grazing or mowing. It is noted that the land is let on a seasonal basis to a neighbouring farmer, but given the type of agreement, the entire property will be subject to vacant possession at time of completion.

GENERAL PURPOSE / AGRICULTURAL BUILDING
A recent addition to the holding is the general purpose / agricultural building (13.87m x 9.2m), which would lend itself to a number of uses. The shed is of modern steel portal construction under a fibre cement roof with concrete dwarf walls and box profile cladding. The shed benefits from full height roller shutter door as well as an adjacent personnel door. Power and water are laid in.
