The work will include new windows, alterations to the roof, an extension, work to the boundary wall and landscaping and the creation of a car park for 12 vehicles.
The development will also feature a glassed balcony, a communal for residents of the flats and a private garden for the house.
The Heritage Statement prepared by C+A submitted with the planning application to South Lakeland District Council states: “It is considered that the works proposed to convert and modernise the building are significant, however, in providing a viable long term future use of a primarily vacant building the impact is deemed positive.
“Every effort has been made to ensure that the works proposed sit comfortably with the character of the existing building, are subservient in scale and will enhance its existing appearance.”
We expect a decision late April 2017.
