This very special family home occupies a quiet spot in a delightful village location. Crosby Dene has been lovingly and creatively extended to create a beautiful four/five bedroom home, full of character and charm, yet perfectly planned for modern living. Adjacent to the parish church and set within a cluster of attractive houses, Crosby Dene’s location close to the centre of Holme Village makes commuting into nearby Kendal and Lancaster very easy with junctions 35 and 36 of the M6 each being within a 5 minute drive.
The property itself has been updated throughout and seamlessly extended to the highest of standards with the inclusion of music and lighting systems from Majik House in every room, and now presents luxurious and practical living accommodation set out over two floors. To the ground floor, two superb reception rooms and a large open plan kitchen living room are complemented by practical utility space, cloakroom and storage solutions. The first floors boasts four excellent double bedrooms, two of which are en suite, a sizeable family bathroom and a further study that could easily be transformed into a fifth bedroom if so required.

There is a pub, a village store and a post office alongside the neighbouring church. Nearby Milnthorpe has a whole host of additional amenities including doctors, dentists, supermarket and some lovely independent shops and restaurants; We like Number 17 and Beetham Nurseries to name but a few!
