The current owners have meticulously modernised and extended the original early 18th Century residence, creating a contemporary four-bedroom family home wrapped up in a traditional cottage outer shell. To the front of the home notice the conventional window sizes and styles, the use of exposed natural brickwork and the porch extension all sympathetically adding to the external character of the home.

Inside, Crosby Cottage has been completed to an incredibly high-standard, offering handsome kitchen and stunning bathrooms as well as a few aspects left for you to put your own stamp on and make this project your own.

As soon as you drive up the quiet country lane the idyllic setting of the home is apparent. Park in front of the large garage on the newly tarmacked driveway, with ample parking for three cars.
Make your way up the path and into the porch that makes a convenient space for taking off shoes and coats, and dropping brollies, before entering the home. The underfloor heating, found throughout the ground floor, means that feet will be kept warm and walls aren't obstructed by radiators.

Walk into the large warm and welcoming central hallway, from where the downstairs rooms flow effortlessly. The half wall panels adorning the high traffic areas of the home add an instant classic country cottage feel to the more modern finishing touches.

To the left find an advantageous downstairs WC with wash hand basin, ideal for the use of guests when entertaining, befitting for a home that will be a hub for parties and gatherings.
To the right of the hall is a versatile space, cosy and comfy where a large fireplace awaits a new fire for those winter evenings snuggling down for a family movie but equally could be used as an office or children's den. Imagine having all of the children's toys and belongings in one place, leaving the main living area free of clutter.

This dual aspect room allows for lots of natural light to enter, highlighting the deep windowsills and giving glimpses of countryside views.

Neutrally decorated throughout, Crosby Cottage is delightfully calm yet bright and new. Notice the use of sleek barn doors throughout as well as original beams both giving nods to the home's origins.
Cross the hallway, arrive at the kitchen where the old and new harmoniously blend together in this heart of the home. Original nooks have been designed to house cabinetry and a wine fridge with space above left to show off homely possessions.

A wall of full height pale pebble cabinetry houses double oven and hides fridge, freezer, storage space and double doors that open into a perfectly portioned pantry complete with multiple cabinets and shelving. Discover a utility room, through the traditional cottage door in the corner, complete with space for washer and dryer as well as second sink and more storage opportunities. Hide everything away, without worry, when entertaining and simply show off the captivating kitchen.
Gather around the dark grey central island finished with a light oatmeal worksurface and fitted with an induction hob and venting system forcing the steam and cooking smells downwards, so as to not spoil the aspects of the rural landscape ahead.

Place a large dining table and sofa in front of the expanse of glazing, that captures the great outdoors. Make a brew, using the inbuilt Quooker tap, and take yourself out onto the patio to relax and listen to the morning birdsong. Socialising with large groups of guests and family will be a breeze as you open the doors to the garden. In the colder months, light the corner wood burning stove and feel the ambient heat throughout the room.

To the rear of the home marvel at the spacious lounge giving the same sociable feel as the kitchen. Hunker down in the winter, light the fire set on the stone hearth, and take a break from the busy day to day stresses.

Dual aspect with large picture windows and glazed bifold doors continue the natural flow between inside and out, and extend the living area onto the Cumbrian slate patio that wraps the back of the home. Guests can mingle outside around the BBQ and then come into either of the rear entertaining spaces.
Downstairs the home feels open and inviting where family and friends can come together but also have their own spaces to escape to. It's a really natural and family orientated home.

Return to the hallway and ascend the staircase to the expansive landing. Not just an area that the upstairs rooms flow from but an additional living space - office, reading room, library.

Upstairs the attention to detail continues in the bedrooms and family bathroom. Original beams adorn the ceilings harmoniously blended with the contemporary fixtures and fittings.

To the right discover storage, up one step, before entering into the master suite. This sumptuous space has been designed with the sleeping quarters taking advantage of the external tranquility where glazed double doors fill the room in natural light. Whilst behind, find bespoke wardrobes cleverly built in to the sloping roof, creating a designated dressing room and an adjacent en-suite, complete with double vanity and walk-in shower making it easy to refresh and revive after a busy day. Wake up to breathtaking views over the Juliette balcony towards St Anthonys Tower, open the double doors and let the Cumbrian breeze fill the room.

Across the hall, another grand bedroom benefit from high ceilings and a wall of glazed windows and doors flooding the room with the picture-perfect rural aspects. This bedroom also boasts heaps of storage in the built-in wardrobes and an en-suite shower room; neutrally decorated, yet luxurious throughout.

The further two bedrooms complete with fitted wardrobes are both excellent size doubles but could also be used for an office if needed, offering versatility and possibilities.
Between these two bedrooms is the family bathroom with separate shower and bath with waterfall tap, creating a haven to rest. Fill the tub, light some candles and relax in opulence.

Garden and Grounds
To the front of the home find off-road parking for three cars as well as plenty of on-street parking on the quiet country road. Take to the local cycling trails, or perhaps you are a keen paddleboarder, whatever your hobby, storage for all your equipment won't be a problem with the large garage to the right of the home. There would even be room for a workbench and lawn mower.

Keeping with the country cottage feel, the front garden has been newly planted with bushes and shrubs to create a low maintenance and carefree space. Plant some spring bulbs and watch the daffodils and snowdrops come through.

With far reaching views, out over the fields, the rear garden provides somewhat of a dream space to sit and relax in serenity. Spend afternoons and evenings on the paved patio, soaking up the last of the sun, eventually watching it set over the countryside.

Create a tranquil retreat on the patio with pots filled with brightly coloured flowers surrounding a large table and chairs, perfect for alfresco dining and entertaining. Large and secure the newly laid lawn, found up a few steps, lends itself perfectly to children and pets to run around and play in safety.
Peek the solar panels on the roof above making the home more sustainable.

Breathtaking views, warm and welcoming with bags of charm and luxury Crosby Cottage is a cottage like no other. If you want a family home where you can walk to the shops, be part of a closeknit community and live a life of effortless luxury where memories can be made, then look no further.
