DESCRIPTION The Croft is a substantial period property set in a quiet position within the historic market town of Appleby within the Eden Valley. The Croft sits close to the centre of town, within easy walking distance of the shops, pubs and cafes. There is a doctors surgery and leisure centre. Appleby retains an active community with primary and grammar school, church and various clubs and groups. There are great walks and wonderful views all around.
This property is an impressive Victorian house dating back to the 1860’s and still retains many of the character features including high ceilings, large sash windows and fireplaces that would be expected from a property of this age. The property has been well maintained and is in good order. The kitchen was recently installed but upgrades to the bathrooms may be beneficial.
On the ground floor is a large, welcoming hall way leading through to three reception rooms and the conservatory. All three reception rooms have large fireplaces with gas fires which could be reverted to open fires if preferred. One of the reception rooms has been used as an en suite ground floor bedroom. There is also a recently fitted dining kitchen and utility room. Upstairs are 5 bedrooms, four of which are en-suite doubles. There is also a family bathroom.
Externally there is a large lawn garden with established flower beds, shrubs and mature trees. There is ample parking with a garage and carport as well as a gravelled parking area for multiple vehicles.
The property was previously run as a residential care home and offers possibilities for either commercial or residential use depending on what you are looking for.
The Croft is a fantastic property which offers spacious accommodation in a lovely location. It would make a superb full time home or B&B. Viewing is recommended to appreciate the size.
