Mike House is a fantastic opportunity to take on a development project in Upper Swaledale within the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

Angram is a hamlet in Upper Swaledale, between the picturesque villages of Keld and Thwaite. This area is well known for its dramatic scenery, with panoramic views. Upper Swaledale offers rural living with relatively easy access to Kirkby Stephen and Cumbria in the West and Richmond being around 20 miles away to the East. The popular market town of Hawes is 7 miles away over the famous "Buttertubs Pass" with an excellent range of shops, pubs and cafes as well as the famous Wensleydale Creamery and a good outdoor weekly market.

Unrestricted planning permission for reoccupation of a former dwelling was approved in Dec 2022. Plans have created ample living space on the ground floor with a dining kitchen and living room and upstairs will be two double bedrooms and family bathroom. The barn to the side will remain a barn and could be incorporated into the main house (subject to additional planning permission).

This property is believed to date back to at least 18th century and is an 'Architecturally significant building' with original features still intact. Many of these original features have been included in the details planning permission and 'written scheme of investigation for historic building recording and archaeological work' will be required before work can commence at the site.

To the East of the property is an enclosed yard area with stunning views of the fells. The adjoining field is available by separate negotiation, (up to 2 acres). This is gently sloping pasture land. The farmer will retain vehicular access through to adjoining fields.

Mike House will create a fantastic family, holiday or investment home in a spectacular location in Upper Swaledale.
