Historic Pub Site For Unrivalled New Homes

Posted on March 28, 2011 | News

One of Kendal’s most historic pub sites is set to enter a new era as the first house in a £2.6 million development opens its doors for viewing.

Originally dating back to the 17th century, the Cock and Dolphin is being transformed into an appealing yard-style development of 18 apartments and houses.

Interest is expected to be high when two bedroom plot 10 is introduced this weekend (April 2 and 3), at £169,950.

Award winning builders Russell Armer Homes say the unique position – with sweeping views over river and castle – offers buyers a prize property at a very affordable price.

An elegant living room Juliet balcony takes in the vistas. The house also boasts covered parking, separate kitchen, with Zanussi appliances, quality fittings and lighting, downstairs cloakroom and classy Villeroy & Boch bathroom.

Ever since builders moved in, curiosity in the ancient site has been mounting.

While the current pub dates back to around 1900, the original 1680’s building is thought to have packhorse links with an old London Cock and Dolphin inn.

Russell Armer’s managing director, Martyn Nicholson, said architects had been inspirational in combining ancient and modern – and following Kendal s tradition of old residential yards.

He explained: You hear a lot about location, but this special site, so close to the town centre, really has it.

It s a cleverly combined mix of two and three bedroom houses, six apartments in the old pub and three in a new wing.

Plot 10, like the whole development, allows buyers affordable, stylish, energy efficient homes in an unrivalled position.

It will be open for viewing between 11am and 5.00pm this weekend.
