This handsome period house was originally the Manor House and dates from the late 16th century, with an impressive Regency façade to the south added in the early 19th century. The Mount offers well-proportioned rooms which are both elegant and conveniently arranged and the whole property is beautifully presented throughout. The formal reception rooms include a drawing room, sitting room and a charming
partly panelled dining room. The kitchen/breakfast room opens onto a bright and sunny conservatory, with French windows onto a south-facing terrace. As currently arranged the first floor comprises an excellent master bedroom suite with a large dressing room and bathroom, two further bedroom suites and a study (or additional bedroom). Three further bedrooms and a fourth bathroom can be found on the second floor.

The Mount is approached down a gravelled driveway leading to a large parking area, screened from the house by clipped hornbeam hedging. Adjoining this is a useful range of outbuildings including stabling, garaging and workshops. On the east side of the house is a pretty timberframed building known as The Old House. Now used as a party room, it has wonderful exposed beams and wood-burning stove. There is a useful small kitchen and cloakroom.

The Mount sits within beautiful gardens. To the south of the house is a wide flat lawn with curved flower beds and clipped ilex trees, with a thick laurel and beech beyond. Mixed borders include a variety of topiary, flowers and shrubs. Beyond a tall beech hedge are further lawns and a productive vegetable garden with a greenhouse. In a sheltered spot is a natural swimming pond, converted from a former heated swimming pool. This makes a delightful feature, with a small waterfall at one end.

A stone summer or pool house provides useful storage together with a shower room, kitchen and WC. A wide pergola, covered in roses, clematis and a vine leads back to the house. The attractive former Coach House provides excellent ancillary accommodation. There is a large office on the ground floor, one reception room, a kitchen/breakfast room and three bedrooms.

To the north of the main house is the original ’Mount’ or ’Motte’ from which the property takes its name. Dating from the Middle Ages, it sits in a strategic position above the River Avon below and is surrounded by mature trees and shrubs, with mown paths and charming views across the river to the fields beyond.

On the opposite side of the lane is a useful grass paddock of 3 acres, ideal for horses. To the north of the property, on the opposite side of the river, is a further 10.16 acre field which is available be separate negotiation.
