A development opportunity in the Eden Valley

Greenholme is an exclusive 5.5 acre development site set amidst the picturesque beauty of the Eden Valley with unrivalled vistas across the wild natural landscape of the northern Pennines.

With planning approval for 15 dwellings the potential exists to create a rural escape blending sustainable living with heritage, the environment and modern lifestyle demands of connectivity and accessibility.

A fusion of old and new the site is a vision of modern country style aesthetics.  A perfect mix of rural ambience with the comfort of multiple local village amenities to hand.

Located on the eastern fringes of the popular commuter settlement of Warwick Bridge, the site is well positioned providing immediate access to the A69 as well as being within four miles of access to the M6 at Junction 43.

Nestled between two UNESCO World Heritage sites the land is equidistant from the historic city of Carlisle and Carlisle Lake District Airport.

Mainline west coast rail services stop in Carlisle serving Glasgow, Edinburgh and London.  Public transport services link direct to Newcastle from the site which is also within walking distance of a Co-op, renowned butchers, rural serviced office centre, doctors’ surgery and public house.

Mature woodland trees occupy the north and eastern boundaries overhanging a small beck.  Elsewhere the land undulates only slightly bordering the A69 to the north and Peacock Lonning to the south.

A private road, built for construction vehicles, to become the principal access following completion has already been constructed and passes through the site on a north/south axis.
