Only five minutes from the handsome and historic market town of Settle, seek seclusion and sanctuary at Accerhill Hall. An incredible home, Accerhill Hall has metamorphosed from its 1600s origins to encompass the connecting barn buildings, offering everything a family could need for 21st century living, replete with sauna, cinema, bar, gym and hot tub.

Taking the winding, private road up to Accerhill Hall, immediately the uniqueness of the home asserts itself, as incredible views open up out over Giggleswick and over the tops towards Ingleborough and Pen-y- Ghent. On a clear day, views can reach as far as the Howgills and the Lake District.

Along the tarmac driveway there is ample parking, with a double garage and EVC point.

Steps lead up to the sheltered entrance of Accerhill Hall, where a deep, covered log store on the left is handy in wintertime. A home with a rich history dating back to the 1600s, Accerhill Hall is noted on the first ever map of the area. Retaining so much of its original character in the beams and exposed stone walls, Aga and Belfast sinks, concessions have also been made for modern living, with renovation work undertaken by Giggleswick experts Blaithwaite Developments in 2019.

Reroofed in parts, with the addition of Argon-filled windows, a cinema room, sauna and gym, Accerhill Hall is a harmonious home where past and present meet in perfect accord.

Make your way into the boot room, where smart bench seating provides a perching space for the donning and doffing of outerwear. Hang up your coat and turn immediately right, where steps lead down to the gym. A light-filled room (formerly the garage), sliding doors open to an area of decking, currently home to a hot tub, and where superb views reach out over the rolling fields and hills to Ingleborough.

Returning up the stairs, across from a textured slate wall on the right is a sauna room, ideal for unwinding after a workout or a soak in the tub.

Back in the boot room, turn left into the utility room, a fantastically practical space, separate from the main flow of living space and keeping clutter out of sight and out of mind. Furnished with cabinetry that curves into the corners, maximising storage, wooden worktops contain grooved drainage and accommodate an undermounted Belfast sink.

Step up from the utility room into a spacious and bright garden room, where the vaulted ceiling and skylights add an airiness. Exposed stone and seafoam blue shades from Farrow and Ball, alongside Graham & Green interior design combine classic elegance with modern style whilst a wall of windows brings the outdoors in. Limestone flooring, warmed by underfloor heating, and a large log-burning stove retain the original character of the barn whilst the speaker system and lighting ensure the perfect entertaining ambience.

Off this garden room, carpeted stairs turn past deep-set windows, leading to a guest suite, private and peaceful and supremely spacious. Low windows draw in the light, with a modern ensuite containing shower, wall mounted vanity unit wash basin and WC.

Back in the garden room, stone steps lead to the inner hall, where zesty shades add a fresh feel to the walls. Practical places here include a cloakroom with wash basin and WC and a well-stocked pantry.

Crossing the inner hall, steps lead up to the dining room, a room blazing in light, where limestone flooring extends underfoot and windows frame picturesque views out over the countryside and garden. Warmth emanates from both the underfloor heating and log-burning stove, inset within a stone surround.

Beyond the dining room, on the left is the study. Bright rooms are a feature throughout the home, benefitting from the elevated position of Accerhill Hall. With its own attached bathroom ensuite, with shower, wash basin and WC, this could also serve as a sixth bedroom.

Steps lead up from an inner hallway into the original cottage element of the home, where rustic beams extend overhead, and a purpose-built bar is set before a large window overlooking the garden.

Pour a drink and make your way through an archway to the left into the stunning cinema room, wired for sound and fitted with projector and screen, where the exposed stone wall and modern Farrow and Ball paint combine to create the ultimate entertaining space.

Ahead and right, another set of cream carpeted stairs leads up to a landing off which three bountiful bedrooms are located. Immediately right, an inner landing leads to a well-lit room, currently accommodating a drum kit but ideal as a nursery, dressing room or storeroom.

Refreshment awaits ahead, in the contemporary bathroom, where metro tiling features to the walls with patterned tiling in grey and white underfoot. A large walk-in shower accompanies a smart wash basin inset upon a solid wood vanity dresser, and a WC.

Returning to the main landing, to the right is the second bedroom. Spacious and bright, the high ceiling is embellished by beams with lots of light flowing in through the large side window.
Next door, bedroom three also features a high ceiling and beams, with ample space for a double bed and wardrobes.

Bedroom four awaits next door, with a cosy cottage feel from the sloping ceiling and low cottage window. A large Velux above adds further daylight, with space for two single beds.

Back on the ground floor, sneak a peek to the right, where a door leads to a delectable wine cellar. Alternatively, continue ahead into the second kitchen. Part of the original cottage, idyllic views extend over the garden and countryside. An Esse Ironheart wood-burner sits before a white metro tiled wall, with a Belfast sink undermounted within the smooth white worktops. With ample space for a breakfast table, exposed stone lies within an archway leading through to the snug lounge, another wood-burning stove is inset within an original stone fireplace.

Such a versatile home, consider the potential to separate the original cottage and barn to create annex accommodation, perhaps for relatives or even as income from Airbnb.

Retracing your steps to the dining room, a door leads off, leading to a storage room on the left and on the right to an elevated dining area, bathed in natural light and with fantastic views over the patio and fields. With beams above, step down from the dining area into the main kitchen, with terracotta tiles underfoot, and a large cream Aga inset within an inglenook. Fitted cabinets and drawers provide plenty of storage, whilst appliances include a dishwasher and fridge-freezer.

Emanating cosy comfort is the snug next door, where exposed stone and beams add a country vibe, countered by the deep blue Farrow and Ball walls. A large inglenook fireplace houses a log-burning stove, ensuring warmth and welcome. As throughout the home, impressive views extend over the countryside.

Finally, back in the zesty orange inner hall, stairs lead up to the left, where to the left again lies the master bedroom. A sizeable room, fall asleep to starlit views in the clear skies surrounding Accerhill Hall. An archway leads to a luxurious ensuite featuring large wet room shower with wall mounted dual tap wash basin with alcove mirror inset above. To the right of the ensuite is a walk-in wardrobe. Ahead from the ensuite is a private WC, tucked away to the rear.

Back on the landing, ascend the stairs once again to reach the room friends of the current owners christened the "Sky Lounge", currently used as a Games room, where windows to both sides capture spectacular, elevated views out over the fields and fells.

Storage is in plentiful supply throughout the home, with loft space above this upstairs lounge, also within the eaves from the master suite.

A future proofed home, four log-burning stoves ensure warmth throughout, alongside the wood-fired stove in the second kitchen. Accerhill Hall also sources and filters lovely fresh water from a borehole and is furnished with solar panels.
