The Homestead presents an exclusive opportunity to purchase your own rural retreat in the highly sought after Arnside and Silverdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This spacious family home has not been marketed in the last 30+ years.

The south facing property enjoys a tranquil setting and offers a complete small rural estate with spacious four/five bedroom family home, outbuildings [including two garages], covered caravan and carport, extended landscaped garden, patio areas, orchard, vegetable allotment and adjacent 0.70 acre paddock.

The property has a charming homely feel to it and has been well cared for by the present owners who have maintained it to a very high standard. The Homestead enjoys a raised vantage point and is cleverly positioned being dual aspect. The spacious front garden catches the morning sun whilst the rear garden and patio area looking over to the bay and Lakeland Fells catches the afternoon/evening sun. This also makes the majority of rooms light and airy. To the rear of the property is a fantastic double conservatory offering a prime entertaining area for those long summer evenings.

Carr Bank is situated in the Arnside and Silverdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Carr Bank is a quiet coastal hamlet, overlooking the Kent Estuary, about a mile from the village of Arnside.
