    Mount Pleasant has five stables, tack and store rooms, and two paddocks, in addition to plenty of garaging.

    Originally designed by David Stevens, who won 11 gold medals at The Chelsea Flower Show, this property’s gardens feature lawns, mature specimen trees, pond and a summer house. This home sits in three acres.

    Originally constructed in the early 20th Century, Mount Pleasant has undergone renovations and features a handcrafted kitchen with an AGA, and views of the landscaped gardens.

    There are adjoining formal dining and lounge areas, along with a triple aspect sitting room.

    An oak staircase leads to the first floor, where there are five bedrooms. Bedroom five features its own freestanding slipper bathtub.

    In addition to the main dwelling, a detached outbuilding offers office space with a kitchen and W.C facilities. This aspect of the property has the potential for conversion into auxiliary accommodation, subject to the necessary permission being obtained.
