Wonderful family home with stunning countryside views and swimming pool which is chain free.
Mount Pleasant Cottage is a wonderful family home, set well back from the road with stunning countryside views. The house has a long driveway approach and enjoys a beautiful, landscaped garden with a heated swimming pool and outbuildings. The property is believed to date back to about 1903 and has been extended over the years offering flexible accommodation.
An enclosed entrance porch opens into the reception hall with stairs to the first floor. The sitting room enjoys wonderful views over the garden and beyond. The walls are half panelled and a brick and timber fireplace, with a working fire, provides a lovely focal point to the room. The adjacent dining room is dual aspect, again with wonderful garden views. The kitchen/breakfast room is well equipped with a comprehensive range of Shaker style units, and incorporates a breakfast table ideal for informal dining. The units are complemented by granite work surfaces with integrated appliances including an electric hob, double oven, extractor and a dishwasher. There is a fireplace with a wood burning stove, space for a large fridge/freezer and a door to the garden. An inner hallway, with further storage, leads to a utility room with space for appliances and outside door access to a large covered porch. A study lies off the reception hall and adjacent are two bedrooms together with an en suite bathroom. A bathroom and WC complete the accommodation on this floor.
On the first floor the principal bedroom extends the depth of the house with views to the front and rear, fitted wardrobes and an en suite bathroom. There are three further bedrooms, one with fitted wardrobes and one which is accessed through a loft void area, which could have a multitude of uses. At the far end of the landing is a large eaves storage room.
The property has permitted development approved for a detached triple garage and a single-storey side extension (Application No:18/00620/cloped)
The house is approached over a long gravel driveway with parking for several cars. The garden is a real feature of the house, beautifully planted and maintained with spectacular views over open countryside. A heated swimming pool lies to the side with a pergola and terrace area, giving the ideal spot to relax and enjoy the view. The garden is mainly laid to lawn, with well stocked beds, interspersed with trees, including several apple trees, and enclosed with fencing and hedging. A well-established vegetable garden lies adjacent to several outbuildings, including garaging and a workshop. Of particular note is a large separate home office which is fully insulated, with a store room, power, heating and is wired for internet access.
