An immaculately presented 4-bedroom family home with wonderful gardens.

Mount Pleasant was built in 2009 and has been carefully looked after by the current owners, with a recent upgrade to many areas of the house in the last year. The property is set in an elevated position, with far reaching views across the surrounding countryside and benefits from double glazing throughout and a beautiful landscaped south facing garden. Entering through the front lobby, into an impressive dining hall, with large sash windows on both aspects, this room makes for a light and welcoming space, which could be used for a variety of uses. The solid oak flooring throughout this room, leads into the adjoining drawing room, which has a large log burner and French doors opening onto the terrace. A study, with bespoke, fitted units and built in storage, ideal as a home office is located between these two reception rooms.

The impressive kitchen with granite worktops is well-equipped with fitted units, an induction Miele hob, steam and electric ovens, integrated white goods and a central island, which houses a wine fridge and additional storage. There is also space for a kitchen table, for more informal dining, as well as a breakfast bar. The limestone flooring in the kitchen, cloakroom and adjoining utility, again with granite worktops, benefits from underfloor heating which also extends throughout the property, heated via the ground source heat pump. The utility also benefits from a belfast sink and integrated washing machine. There are four well-proportioned double bedrooms to the first floor accessed from the galleried landing. The master suite has a dressing area with built in wardrobes and an en-suite bathroom. The family bathroom serves the remaining three bedrooms which all benefit from fitted wardrobes. There is a large dressing room/study area accessible from the guest bedroom, with further access to a large storage area. The internal doors, along with the front and rear doors are wide enough for wheelchair access.

This property has 0.7 acres of land.


Approached through wrought-iron gates, the drive leads to a large gravelled driveway with ample parking for several cars. There is also a single garage which is integrated into the main house and accessible from the utility area. The south facing sun terrace, flagged with stone, accessed from both the drawing room and kitchen/breakfast room, features an interesting slate water feature, making this the perfect spot for outdoor entertaining or al fresco dining.

The beautifully landscaped gardens have been carefully planted, with established borders and raised beds, with many different areas to enjoy as the seasons change. The woodland area towards the end of the garden are a riot of colour with softly scented wildflowers and a number of specimen trees and a pretty large ornamental pond. There is a substantial vegetable garden, which is completely enclosed with six raised tiered beds and also a greenhouse and a further workshop, both of which are connected with lighting and power, two garden sheds and an outside store. The garden can be lit with several outdoor lights in the evening.
