Showcasing a wealth of original features and an established garden plot is The Mount, an exquisite period residence benefitting from extensive and generously proportioned accommodation, four double bedrooms and tailor made ancillary accommodation. Originally built by the famed Armitage Shanks family, The Mount offers a fine example of Victorian architecture and features beautifully retained character including original doors, architraves and coving, Minton tiled flooring to the reception hall and traditional sash windows. The property stands in a prominent yet secluded position in the village, having wrap around gardens extending to a generous 0.7 acre featuring a range of outbuildings offering superb potential for conversion. The extensive and versatile accommodation offered by The Mount presents ideal space for a home-run business, for ancillary living or to offer Air BnB type income, all whilst enjoying the charm and prestige offered by a quintessential Victorian residence.
An original front door leads into the porch and reception hall which features Minton tiled flooring and leads into five versatile reception rooms plus the dining kitchen. Also to the ground floor are a conservatory, walk in pantry, snug, laundry room and cloakroom. The original staircase with feature stained glass window rises to the first floor landing, an impressive space which extends the full width of the property. Four excellent double bedrooms are serviced by two Jack & Jill bathrooms, and the former Ballroom has been converted into a self contained annexe, having open plan living and dining kitchen, full height windows to the side and a mezzanine first floor bedroom with bathroom and stunning Orangery skylight. Outside, a sweeping entrance leads into the driveway where there is parking for a number of vehicles, and a second gated entrance further up Pike Lane could also be reinstated. The wrap around gardens extend to a superb size offering plenty of scope for landscaping, and outbuildings include a two storey coach house, stables and an array of store rooms, offering excellent scope for conversion (STPP).
The Mount lies on a secluded lane minutes walk from the village centre of Armitage, where there are a range of amenities including shops, pubs, a Butchers, village hall, a doctors surgery and dispensary pharmacy.
