Derwent Forest is situated a few miles outside of Cockermouth in a very picturesque location nested between Great Broughton and Broughton Moor with breath taking views across the Lake District.
The proposed site has outline planning for 24 self-build plots benefitting from a fully installed infrastructure. Each self-build plot will be delivered stress free, fully serviced including drainage, gas, water, electric and BT connections leaving you to concentrate on building your dream home.
With planning consent for five house types your build couldn’t be more simple with access to full working drawings. There is a design code with parameters to adhere to. This will ensure that all builds contribute to an exceptional looking community.
The dwellings average around 2000 sq. ft. and the estimated build cost would be around £200,000. Individual plots vary in size from 750m2 to 1096m2. The plots on this site start from £80,000, making it possible to build a large detached house for less than £300,000 in a beautiful rural location close to the Lake District.
Story Contracting have offered the assistance to get a selection of materials from their suppliers to help the costs. There is the possibility of obtaining finance on these self builds. PFK Estate Agents have spoken to Penrith Building Society as they have a great self-build scheme in place for this type of project. Subject to approval and conditions it is possible to get a mortgage to cover a percentage of the plot price and a significant amount of the build costs. With a rough estimation (subject to terms and conditions) it is possible to build one of these properties with as little as £90,000 as a deposit.
