Mount Pleasant comprises a beautifully refurbished, four-bedroom detached cottage set in approaching two acres of gardens and grounds. The property lies some five miles southeast of the market and tourist town of Ross and commands far-reaching views over unspoilt countryside from its dominant, gently sloping, hillside location.

Since acquiring the property some 8 years ago, the owners have worked tirelessly to create a generously appointed residence of immense appeal. Virtually the whole of the ground floor has fine engineered oak flooring, and there is superb 26' living/dining room with exposed beams and woodburning stove. Positioned alongside same is the exquisite 18' kitchen/breakfast room with a huge granite topped island together with a comprehensive range of high-end floor and drawer units, again under granite work surfaces. Incorporated within the units are a five-ring induction hob, fridge freezer, oven and combination oven, all appliances by either Neff or Bosch.

Glazed double doors from the kitchen open onto an adjacent timber balcony, and views from both the balcony and all front facing windows extend for miles across unspoilt Herefordshire countryside. A laundry/utility room and cloaks and W.C. Complete the ground floor accommodation.

Stairs then ascend to an exceptionally light landing, light by virtue of a huge double glazed window to the rear wall, whilst positioned directly above the stairwell is a beautifully constructed Cupola. Positioned off the impressive master bedroom is the superb en-suite shower room and w.c. Approached via a beautiful, frosted glass pocket door which slides away in a wonderfully smooth fashion. There are then three additional bedrooms, most with built in storage, and the outstanding family bath/shower room.

Central heating is from an oil-fired radiator system and there is an ingenious central vacuuming system with outlets on both ground and first floor.

The principal area of garden to the property lies to the south and west of the cottage, and this includes neat areas of lawn with established shrub and flower beds. In addition there is a range of deciduous trees, including a magnificent Weeping Willow. The boundaries are fringed to the north, east and south by adjacent forestry commission woodland. This enviable position ensures the owners are privileged to encounter an abundance of wildlife in close proximity such as deer, badgers and owls.
