Full Details

Opportunity has arisen to purchase a larger than average detached family home set within an attractive Lakeland stone and rendered property under a slate roof, originally the machine shop for the Bobbin Mill and was converted in the late 1990's. A modern, contemporary individual property with high ceilings throughout situated in the semi rural village location of Spark Bridge. The accommodation in this substantial property, briefly consists a splendid open reception hall, dining kitchen with separate utility room, large playroom/home office, full length living room, four large double bedrooms all with ensuite facilities, detached garage, landscaped gardens, private parking for several vehicles and views over the River Crake.

The Crake Valley, one of the lesser known Lakeland valleys, offers a very peaceful and picturesque environment for either a permanent home or for attracting holiday rentals. At the head of the valley is Coniston Water and the rising uplands of central Lakeland with the River Crake flowing through Spark Bridge into the estuary of Morecambe Bay and nearby Greenodd. Within the Lake District National Park, Spark Bridge is a small but vibrant rural community, with plenty of local activities, a village hall and two pubs within walking distance of Crake River House. Whilst positioned on a quiet lane there is good road access nearby to the A590 trunk road, giving quick access to the M6 junction 36 and rail connections at Ulverston or Oxenholme. The popular market town of Ulverston is only a short drive and offers a wide range of amenities and good range of local shopping.

Directions Travelling west on the A590 take the second turn off the roundabout at Greenodd, continue on the A5092 and after approximately 1 miles turn right signposted for Spark Bridge. Continue into the village with the River Crake on your right hand side and the entrance to the lane leading to Crake View House is immediately opposite you between the two rows of terraces. Crake View House is immediately on the right hand side with parking in front of the garage.
