5 Bedroom Detached House Sold STC

Sowerbys are delighted to have been appointed to sell this superb Grade II listed Georgian House - The Mount. Since our vendors took over only a few years ago, the property has been transformed and brought back to life. With many original features restored to an exceptional standard and occupying an elevated position as the name suggests, sitting on a corner plot this property must be viewed to be fully appreciated.

The minute you step inside, the wow factor hits you immediately; high ceilings, exposed original floorboards and a beautiful sweeping Georgian staircase. Just off the entrance hall to the left is the sitting room, packed with period features, such as floor to ceiling sash windows, allowing an abundance of light to flood through, an open gas fireplace which takes centre stage offering grandeur to this space.

The open plan kitchen/breakfast room is definitely the hub of this amazing home. Usually, a property of this age tends to host a small kitchen, but this property has been modernized in a sympathetic manner to ensure that it meets the demands of modern living. The kitchen is centred around a substantial island, with marble worktops, inset butler sink and plenty of storage spaces. No kitchen would be complete without a full-size Aga. The kitchen opens to a cosy dining space which is also flooded with plenty of natural light through the original sash windows.

The formal dining room has yet another open fireplace, exposed original floorboards, stunning cornicing and fantastic views over the beautifully landscaped garden. With french doors leading to the orangery, this room has definitely been designed for hosting large family get togethers. A property like this would not be complete without a snug. Tucked away to the rear end of the property, another open fireplace, bright and airy, this is the ideal space to unwind and relax. Concluding the downstairs space is the cloakroom.

Upstairs, the bright landing gives access to five double bedrooms and the family bathroom. The principal bedroom, which mirrors the proportions of the sitting room beneath it, is flooded with an abundance of natural light through the almost floor to ceiling sash windows. With access to its own en-suite shower room, our vendors have created a property that belongs in the 21st century.

The outside space is as well presented as the property inside. Our vendors have taken full advantage of the elevated position of the property, meticulously landscaping the garden creating a variety of spaces. From a sweeping path, to a decking area, to a variety of seating areas, this garden is designed to allow anyone to create long lasting memories. With an elevated patio area and a must have outdoor pizza oven, dining alfresco is all that you would want to do.

There is off-road parking for multiple vehicles and the garage with its rear workshop gives you that extra storage space.

WISBECH Wisbech is an attractive and historic market town commonly known as the Capital of the Fens. Near the bridge is a monument to Thomas Clarkson, an active opponent of the slave trade. Also of interest are the two market places and the parish church of St Peter and St Paul, which has a fine 16th century tower. The Norman Castle has long since disappeared, but there is a house built from its stone by Thomas Thurloe, Cromwell's Secretary of State. Adjoining it is a great museum, one of the oldest in the country, which counts among its treasures the original manuscript of 'Great Expectations' by Charles Dickens. In the area there is very good walking and cycling, farm shops nearby, theatre - amateur and professional, a swimming pool, library, good schools- including the highly thought of Wisbech Grammar School, and a Salvation Army hall. The town is only 20 minutes from King's Lynn with its direct rail link to Kings Cross via Cambridge approx 1 hour 40 minutes. Peterborough is 35 minutes away with its national rail links.
