Thwaite Gate Farm provides a fantastic and exciting opportunity to acquire a superbly located compact Livestock Farm, with a semi-detached traditional Farmhouse, set in a private situation, yet a small distance from the centre of Carnforth, having the unique advantage of being private, not isolated.

Carnforth itself has a wide range of amenities and is excellently located for access onto the A6 and M6. Importantly, the Farm is near a bus route for the catchment of the Grammar Schools of Lancaster and further afield.

Thwaite Gate Farm has traditionally been used as a Livestock Farm, but now offers potential for a wide-range of Alternate Uses, subject to gaining necessary Planning consent. One of the highlights of the property is the substantial range of Traditional Barns located within the Farmyard, which has the added advantage of being separated from the Farmhouse and is situated adjacent to the Lancaster Canal, with views over and also surrounded by the Agricultural land.

The property enjoys access over a shared private driveway leading off the A6, over the Lancaster Canal. The driveway leads into the Farmyard, with the attached Farmhouse, range of Buildings and 46.38 acres (18.77 hectares) of permanent pasture grassland.

The Farmhouse requires a full programme of modernisation, refurbishment and updating, but offers scope for extension and alteration if required. The property as a wealth of character which can be retained in any sympathetic development.

The Farmhouse is accessed from a side door which leads directly into a kitchen, with a window to side, a character Range cooker, door through to living room with small flight of stairs, leading to a front snug.

The additional set of stairs from the living room leads to the first floor, which can be found 3-good sized bedrooms, 2-further store rooms and family bathroom. The house also has a cellar, accessed from the kitchen. To the side of the house can also be found log store, wash house and separate WC.

The Farm Buildings at Thwaite Gate Farm are centred around two large traditional stone barns, part of which are two-storey, which clearly offer potential for Alternate Use subject to gaining necessary Planning consent.

The Barns are set in a U-shape and are a good distance apart, which aids the ability for the Barns to be changed into different usage. Overall, the Barns offer in excess of 500sq.m on the first floor alone.

Currently, the Barns are used for cattle, sheep and produce storage. The Barns also have the added advantage of a cobbled yard, with the majority of the Barns being slate roof.

The land in total extends to 46.38 acres (18.77 hectares) made up of a total of 14-individual field enclosures, all being down to permanent pasture, predominantly level by nature, classified as Grade 3 under DEFRA's Agricultural Land Classification Maps for England & Wales. The land is in good heart with a mixture of mature hedges, fences and walls with the added advantage of mains water connected to the majority of the fields.

Access to the land is via internal track which leads to the majority.
