The Property
Holly Bank is a substantial detached house which has been extended and renovated over recent years. The property now offers generously proportioned accommodation with a flexible layout, ideal for modern day living. The interior offers a range of traditional features such as solid oak parquet flooring, oak doors and cast iron radiators blended with modern additions such as contemporary kitchen and bathrooms. The property is situated on the edge of Blindcrake and enjoys wonderful views over open countryside and towards the Lakeland Fells.

The front door opens into the reception hall with parquet flooring and gives access to the principal reception rooms. To the rear of the house is a fantastic kitchen/breakfast room with range of fitted white units, granite surfaces, central island and integrated appliances including dishwasher, Rangemaster electric range oven, and American fridge-freezer. The large kitchen window provides breathtaking views of the surrounding area. At the front of the house are two pleasant reception rooms, both with parquet flooring, and currently used as a dining room and sitting room. The generously proportioned drawing room also has parquet flooring, multi-fuel stove and has wonderful views to the rear. Also on the ground floor is a study, contemporary bathroom with high quality fittings, WC, utility/boot room, and access to the integral double garage.

The first floor offers a master bedroom suite which has stunning views and comprises a dressing room and en-suite bathroom with contemporary sanitary ware. There are four further double bedrooms, two situated to the front and two to the rear, all with countryside views. A newly installed sumptuous shower room serves the secondary bedrooms and there is a spacious landing which would make an ideal reading area.

The property is entered via wrought iron gates onto a generous driveway with parking for several vehicles which leads to the integral double garage. Also to the front are borders with bark chippings and shrubs.
To the rear is a south facing garden, laid to lawn, a detached outbuilding which provides excellent storage but would easily convert into an ideal space to work from home, or an annex, subject to planning. Adjoining the garden is an enclosed paddock with separate access from the road. The paddock can also be accessed from the garden and from the road entrance. In all the property extends to approximately 1.5 acres. There is power and water to the outbuilding and paddock.

Local Information
Blindcrake is an attractive Lakeland village which sits in an elevated position on the south-facing slopes of the Isel Valley and is well located for access to major towns such as Cockermouth and Carlisle. The name Blindcrake is an anglicised derivation of the old Celtic Blaen-craig meaning at the summit (blaen) of a rocky outcrop (craig), referring to the nearby Clints Crags. The village often features in the Cumbria in Bloom awards and has been designated a Conservation Area by the Lake District National Park Authority in recognition of its special historical, archaeological and architectural merits. The village is a vibrant community with an active village hall. The surrounding area is ideal for outdoor pursuits including walking, mountain climbing and rambling together with sailing and other water sports on nearby Bassenthwaite Lake. The market town of Cockermouth provides everyday amenities with a wide range of shops, supermarkets, chemists, medical and dental surgeries, sports centre and many restaurants and pubs. Carlisle provides further comprehensive cultural, recreational and shopping facilities. There is a choice of popular primary schools in the area and for secondary schooling there is a highly-regarded school in Cockermouth.

For the commuter, the A595 provides easy access to Carlisle and onwards to M6 for links to the north and south. The rail station at Carlisle provides regular services to major UK cities north and south and also services east to Newcastle.
