48 brand new high-end apartments in the Lake District World Heritage site.
The South Building includes an eclectic mix of nineteen luxury properties over four storeys, comprising beautifully designed one, two, three and four bedroom apartments. The slightly larger of the two residential buildings, the North Building, comprises twenty-four attractive homes including spectacular duplex apartments and stunning triplex properties.
Works on the project also included the renovation of a Scheduled Ancient Monument. Built in 1711 and believed to be the only remaining example of its type, the blast furnace at Ironworks was one of the first charcoal-fired blast furnaces to be built in Cumbria – mainly producing gun carriages, cannons and cannonballs.
The overflow of Lake Windermere to the rear of the properties necessitated a flood defence wall to be built to the rear of the North block.
