A substantial and extensively refurbished Victorian country house situated in a stunning location with a formal garden and paddocks to rear, extending to about 2.4 acres.
Built in 1890, Mount Place has been the subject to a recent and thorough refurbishment which now offers a stunning family home with additional land for keeping horses and livestock. The property bears all the hallmarks of a fine country house with well-proportioned rooms and many period features. From much of the house there are fantastic open views over surrounding farmland towards the Downs. Within the past three years the current owners have built a high quality single storey extension which provides a large kitchen/diner with bi-fold doors and plenty of natural light from an atrium. Further to this the sympathetic and comprehensive refurbishment programme has taken place. There is an exhaustive list of improvements including: – new heating, plumbing, wiring, flooring, roofing, decorating, bathrooms, windows (hardwood – double glazed) multi fuel burner installation and landscaping.
Mount Place holds a valuable restrictive covenant preventing development on the neighbouring plot (under separate ownership) along the west boundary.
Wellow is a small quiet village two and a half miles from the harbour town of Yarmouth where there is a variety of shops, good choice of restaurants, excellent sailing facilities and mainland ferry terminal. Nearby, Shalfleet offers the unspoilt Quay, part of the Newtown Nature Reserve. Local footpaths and bridleways give access to miles of unspoilt countryside and National Trust downland.
