8 Mellbecks is a superb semi-detached cottage in a quiet location just off the marketplace in Kirkby Stephen.

Kirkby Stephen is an active market town, just beyond the northern periphery of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The town is just ten miles from junction 38 of the M6 motorway and is well placed for Kendal, Penrith, Appleby and the Lake District. The scenic Settle to Carlisle Railway is on the doorstep and the Coast-to-Coast footpath runs through. Kirkby Stephen has highly regarded primary and grammar schools, as well as a good range of shops, restaurants, pubs, church, chapel and doctor's surgery. There is still a weekly outdoor market and an agricultural auction mart.

The property offers spacious, characterful accommodation. On the ground floor is a pleasant garden room/ entrance porch leading through to a cosy snug with multi fuel stove. There is a family sized dining kitchen and large sitting room. To the rear is a utility room and second kitchen/ prep kitchen. There is also a ground floor en suite bedroom, this would make an ideal study or work from home space. Upstairs are four double bedrooms, a bathroom and a shower room.

8 Mellbecks was originally two cottages, it was converted to one large home around 4 years ago. The property has two gas fired boilers, all other utilities have been merged to accommodate the one property.

Outside, to the front is a low maintenance cottage style garden and a South facing flagged patio. There is a gravel drive which provides ample parking for several vehicles and detached garage with workshop or storage room.
