In the picturesque village of Askham within the Lake District National Park lies Askham Gate; the scheme sees the development of an allocated site for local housing along with an adjacent and adjoining plot which is to be built out as a windfall site. The site is being developed as a vehicle to generate the necessary capital to refurbish and repurpose the adjacent Listed barns which are an important landmark within the centre of the village.
The 17 new homes are designed as contemporary living spaces and are intended to respect the local vernacular whilst clearly being new dwelling. Designed to exceed current sustainability and renewable standards, the scheme will provide much needed homes ranging from first-time buyer properties to family homes. The house enjoy magnificent views over the open countryside.
