The former Hamilton Arms pub, Quattros and Da Carmelos restaurant building will be converted into flats
A beautiful Grade II listed building near Garstang is to be transformed into eight apartments. The huge building on Lancaster New Road in Cabus has had many guises in recent years, including operating as the Hamilton Arms pub, Quattros and Da Carmelos restaurants and most recently, Hadlow’s BBQ Flames Restaurant and Bar.
The building, which is understood to have originated as a 17th century farmhouse and also has a garden and barn outbuildings in the grounds, boasts original wooden beams and floorboards, gable chimneys, Greek Doric columns, a pitched slate roof and was constructed using rendered stone. Planning permission to convert it into a number of flats with new features including balconies, new windows and other design alterations was originally submitted in March. 2020 and approved by Wyre Council in August 2020
The report stated that permission was granted under the condition that a proper drainage system was installed and concluded that construction must begin within three years. The historic building operated as an inn in the 1890s to 1910 and was known as the Hamilton Arms Hotel, due to land being owned by the Hamilton family, with their coat of arms carved above the porch.
According to the planning application, the original features will be restored and retained as part of the renovation work by the current developers, with the 8,095 sq ft property most recently listed for sale for £699,950.
