Property Description

Full description

The development site, which extends to approximately 0.9 hectares/2.23acres, enjoys an attractive elevated position with extensive views opening up over surrounding countryside including glimpses towards the Solway coastline and Irish Sea.

The site has an attractive, essentially rural, feel to it but is very handy for a wide range of facilities within nearby Maryport and Cockermouth where schools, shopping opportunities and social/recreational amenities are all well represented. Crosby itself enjoys a strong community atmosphere with local pub, primary school, Crosscannonby Church and the village green all contributing to daily village life.

Description - The site is roughly rectangular in shape with a wide frontage to the village road of approximately 130m, off which there is direct access, extending to approximately 0.9 hectares/2.23 acres.
