Mount Pleasant is an attractive cottage dating, we understand, from the late 1800's and the current owners have been in residence since 1978. The property offers a wealth of traditional features, with exposed beams and open fireplace and has been extended to create additional ground and first floor accommodation. The ground floor accommodation centres around a generous sized kitchen/breakfast room with an oil fired Rayburn for the hot water and central heating and this room is clearly "the hub of the house" and leads through into a lovely garden room, with views over the surrounding countryside. The sitting room enjoys a Jetmaster fire, whilst the dining/family room has a wood burning stove. On the first floor there are four bedrooms and a shower room.
