Lakeland boat house goes on sale for somewhat ambitious sum of £500,000 in spite of not having any residential accommodation
A boat house on the lake where Donald Campbell piloted Bluebird K7 to 202.32 miles per hour in 1955 has gone on sale for the somewhat punchy sum of £500,000 ($654,000, €562,000 or درهم2.4 million) in spite of not having planning permission for conversion or a parking space even.
Siutated at the southern end of the 9 mile long Ullswater lake, Wall Holm Boathouse at Glenridding is set on a ¼ acre plot accessible on foot only. It is of timber framed construction and has a double wet dock with a walkway on three sides.
Outside, aside from spectacular views across what is often described as “one of the most beautiful English lakes,” there is an area of raised deck seating and a 65-foot frontage to the water.
The boat house is offered for sale by Fine & Country and potentially could be upgraded to provide “day accommodation.”
