Description
Believed to date from the late eighteenth century, Mount Ullard is a listed property facing south to the Blackstairs Mountains and the river Barrow. Delightfully tucked away down its own drive the house gets the sun all day offering new owners wonderful privacy and solitude.
As it stands, the imposing 'L' shaped building extending to approximately 3,490 sq. ft. and is constructed of stone under a slate roof. The property offers a very workable layout of three floors over basement (yet to be renovated).

Gardens
The gardens at Mount Ullard are a credit to the current owners. The mature planting found throughout the grounds offers a colourful montage over the course of the year from a sea of bluebells in spring, to the colourful assortment of roses in summer, apple and pear trees in autumn and silver birch glistening in the winter sun.
Effortlessly blending into the ancient wall gardens the mature array of plants, shrubs and trees are not much older than 10 years. Of course kudos to the current owners whose imagination and creativity has conceived beautiful rockeries, home to cascading plants and purposely placed benches offer tranquillity and serenity whilst enjoying this peaceful space.
The once overgrown briars and land have been transformed, reminiscent of Frances Hodgson Burnett's 'The Secret Garden' - An idyllic place where children and adults of all ages will enjoy exploring for years to come.
