This is an opportunity to buy and develop a part of our listed industrial history. The Old kiln at Wetheriggs is a development opportunity to convert around 5000 sqft of listed building into a magnificent family home. Wetheriggs is positioned just a few miles from Penrith, the M6 and just 3 hours away from London via train. This rural yet accessible location is blessed with stunning views and is just a stones throw from the Lake District national park. The building has many unusual design features and includes a beehive kiln that will need careful restoration but will make a stunning feature. The property is made up of three reception rooms, five bedrooms all en-suite and a kitchen created in the kiln area. Externally the building is positioned in around an acre of beautiful garden space and even includes a steam engine room that the buyer will get to show off for a few days each year. This development will need an eye for detail and will make a very individual family home for the person that wants to take on the next chapter of this historic buildings life.

The development

A very unusual opportunity to convert this amazing building. The Old Kiln, Wetheriggs needs a buyer that can sympathetically refurbish and renovate this sizeable mix of sandstone and brick building. The extensive refurbishment will produce a property that sits in an enviable position near to Penrith and is in good company. In the remaining sections of the original pottery site are a selection of substantial self build properties that will make this development stand out from anything else in not only this location but arguably in Cumbria.
