Period property in village

Croft House is a lovely period home in the heart of popular Burton-in-Kendal with the advantage of a large garden plot, outbuildings and field, all extending to approximately 2.5 acres and an interesting development opportunity of a large limestone barn with planning consent for separate dwelling.

Set at the rear of one of the village squares, through an arched entrance into the secluded courtyard, it offers a surprising degree of peace and quiet that only a full inspection will reveal.

The four bedroom family house has well proportioned rooms with plenty of character and period charm and which takes full advantage of the sunny aspect and outlook over the gardens and adjacent fields.

The opportunity of the barn development presents another dimension to the sale, allowing a build and sell off or a development to retain what has been designed as a very appealing property or to continue its use as a general storage building and amenity.

The adjoining field with separate access from the lane completes the package which we consider to be quite unique, particularly in such a desirable village location.

Croft House has a date stone of 1864 and has a very attractive double frontage and front entrance porch.

The drawing room is a lovely bright room with a marble fire surround and fitted multi-fuel stove. It has deep bay window with full height Victorian sashes including an opening door onto the garden providing an excellent view over the garden and fields.

The dining room overlooks the garden and has a polished green slate inset open grate within a moulded fire surround.

The breakfast kitchen is a pleasant room at the rear corner of the house with windows on two side giving pleasant views. It has a functional range of fitted cabinets incorporating a double oven and four oven oil fired Aga and plenty of space for a breakfast table.

Adjacent to the breakfast kitchen is a versatile room which could be a snug or children’s play room.

The property has four bedrooms (one en-suite) and a shower room.

Approached under the arched entrance off the village square, the driveway opens onto a level gravel parking area through the main gate. There is plenty of parking in front of the garage and to the side of the property.

The gardens around Croft House are well stocked and neatly tended, the large rear garden is set out on two levels, offering a good degree of privacy and stone wall boundaries.

To the side of the garden is an access to the adjacent field, ideal for those wanting space for animals or ponies.

There are a range of small stores and outbuildings suitable for hens or pigs and there is a separate access off the village lane.
