DESCRIPTION Mearbeck House is an impressive Grade II listed Georgian house with attached annex. The property sits in a quiet hamlet just 2 miles from the market town of Settle, with commanding views over the Ribble valley.
The property briefly consists of three lovely reception rooms, farmhouse kitchen and access to the cellars down below. Upstairs on the first floor there are four good size bedrooms – two of which benefit from being en-suite, two house bathrooms and a study. Whilst up on the top floor are three large rooms – perfect for storage or extra sleeping accommodation if desired.
The one bedroom annex has its own back door but is also connectable to the main house by the ground and first floor. Inside you will find a good size bedroom on the ground floor and adjoining bathroom. Up on the first floor is a beautiful living/dinning room and well equipped kitchen.
Mearbeck House is currently let as a large holiday cottage, with owners accommodation, but is equally suited being a large country residence with either a small holiday let, granny flat or staff accommodation.
Outside there are extensive gardens, with lovely views, ample parking, and level 2.5 acre paddock. Total grounds including gardens extend to almost 3 acres. The house is situated, on a west facing hillside with good road and rail links to Skipton and beyond. Settle provides a good selection of shops, facilities and schools, including Settle College and Giggleswick School.
Mearbeck House, in brief is a house with options. The rooms are very versatile and have some of the most beautiful character features on display… Definitely a house to see.
