On the cusp of Bowness and Ulverston, offering pristine peaceful living amongst a historic backdrop, embrace this unique opportunity to own a home in the Lake District with a prime view of the historic heritageRail line leading to lakeside.

A newly constructed development converting the original buildings dateing back to the 1700's, with plans in place for a spectacular luxury home over three floors, with Rail View offering that rare prospect of owning a bespoke, contemporary home that will exceed your every expectation.

On a site full of heritage, Rail View is a home renovated to exacting standards from the surviving structures of the historic Backbarrow Ironworks.

Established in 1711 and in operation for 250 years, gun carriages, canons and cannon balls were the main products produced at the foundry up to its closure in the 1970s.

After appearing on the Heritage at Risk register for many years, and with the blessing of Historic England, the site's cultural importance is now being carefully preserved. Our sensitive approach to the development is crafting exclusive homes that honour the site's heritage and keep the original structure, whilst offering luxury living.

Rail View exemplifies this wonderful blend: a contemporary home where you can create your Lake District dream lifestyle, whilst also being a part of history.

Continue ahead where current plans lead you into an extensive open-plan living, kitchen and dining area.

Large enough for social get-togethers, invite friends and family over to enjoy the space and create special memories. An ideal canvas to put your mark upon, with plenty of opportunities to adapt to your needs, it's a superb and flexible area.

Fill the room with soft sofas and oversized armchairs, ready to sink into and while away lazy weekends around the solid fuel fire, as you look out at the framed views from the windows.

Take a book and spend long afternoons reading and spotting the wildlife, and on warmer days, open the doors to the terrace and let the outside in.

Running the length of the home, the terrace offers wonderful views and encapsulates the unique charm of Rail House. Be taken back in time as you watch the Lakeside and Haverthwaite seasonal steam train pass by and sit with a drink of your choice as you listen to the birdsong and raise your face to the sun.
