THE Eden village of Crosby Garrett, in a quiet vale surrounded by rolling farmland and moors, is home to this modern detached family home.

Four miles from the market town of Kirkby Stephen, picturesque Crosby Garrett is a cluster of historic homes and farms, with a 12th century church and a viaduct on the famous Settle to Carlisle railway.

Our featured property, Julands, was built for its current owners in 1989 to a very high standard. The agents describe it as "immaculately presented" with space in abundance; four bedrooms (two of them en-suite); beautifully landscaped and carefully tended gardens; a garage and ample off-road parking on a gated, gravelled driveway.

Among the many highlights is the enviable breakfast kitchen - an impressive L-shaped room with an oak-beamed ceiling. High-quality fitted units and a breakfast table are topped with polished granite, and there is an American-style Rangemaster stove with ceramic hob, set into an alcove with oak lintel and extractor hood.

An open archway leads to the generously sized living/dining room, where French doors lead to the back garden. A fireplace with multi-fuel stove brings a cosy, welcoming feel.

Julands also has two more reception rooms - a lovely oak-beamed lounge with an oak fireplace and Morso multi-fuel stove; and a conservatory with slate-tiled floor and underfloor heating, pitched slate roof and French doors to the back patio and garden. Smart oak pelmets conceal pull-down blinds.
