THE PROPERTY

Carn Wen comprises a pair of semi-detached cottages with attractive cut granite elevations which is in now a state of disrepair. The property is well located in a delightful rural position accessed off a quiet Council maintained lane.  Conditional Planning Permission was granted on 18th April 2019 (reference PA18/07407) for the reinstatement of Carn Wen Cottage, to include building an extension, to residential use. 

The design has been prepared to utilize the existing structure and the proposed extension will be built and faced in locally sourced stone in-keeping with other dwellings in the locality.  The property has access off the minor country lane to Halvasso via an existing gateway to a parking area to the south of the dwelling remains.  The property has a sunny south-easterly aspect and enjoys private views over the gardens and surrounding countryside.
