The Limes is a fantastic property situated in the heart of Crosby Garrett.

Crosby Garrett, is a quiet village and has little traffic. There are beautiful walks from the door, including the famous Coast to Coast walk which passes nearby. The village has a village hall, church and is excellent for commuting to A66 and the M6. Set in the heart of the stunning Eden Valley, there are lovely views over open countryside and the popular town of Kirkby Stephen is only 4 miles away with a wide range of shops, restaurants and pubs, church, doctor's surgery and a reputable primary and grammar school.

The Limes dates back to 1686, originally a much smaller property, it was extended in both Georgian and Victorian times. The original features found throughout the property show this. The Georgian features include a beautiful staircase, oak doors and elm floorboards.
There is a 150 year old stain glass window, magnificent bookcase and servant pushbell system which were added in the Victorian period.
In the nineteen seventies, the house was split into two cottages and has only recently been reconnected. If required this could be altered to provide a fantastic self contained annexe.

The property is extensive and has two staircases.
The ground floor accomdation comprises a entrance hall, sitting room, kitchen, dining room, study, conservatory, second kitchen, pantry and snug. On the first floor, there are five double bedrooms, three bathrooms and a
dressing room.
The attic rooms can provide additional bedrooms if required or offer fantastic storage space.

Outside, there is a lovely lawned rear garden with established flower beds, shrubs and trees. A patio area offers a fantastic place to sit out and entertain.
The side garden is also a good size lawn and has views across the village.
At the front, the space is low maintenace with shingle beds, ideal for pots and a bench.

The garage is a great size with plenty of space for a car and with room left for storage shelves or an additonal freezer if required.
