Within approximately one mile is the pretty village of Manaccan, centred around its historic Norman Church, with a range of local facilities including a well-regarded primary school and community public house.

The Property - Thought to have been constructed in the early 19th century, The Mount is an enchanting Grade II Listed cottage that has remained within the same family ownership for over 100 years.
 
Renovated and extended during 2006, the cottage now offers comfortable character accommodation and nestles within this small hamlet of similar properties.
 
The spacious family kitchen, which enjoys views over the creek, is well-appointed including a 4-oven oil-fired Aga together with additional integrated appliances and underfloor heating beneath the slate floor. To the rear of this is a utility room and cloakroom. On the ground floor of the original cottage is a spacious formal sitting room benefiting from an open beamed ceiling, slate floor with underfloor heating and a handsome large granite fireplace inset with a wood-burning stove. The room enjoys views to either side together with a door opening to the garden.

Outside - The Mount stands amidst mature natural gardens of around half an acre. Offering considerable scope for additional landscaping, the property is set in a natural bowl with high ground rising to the rear.
 
Directly outside the kitchen and sitting room are perfectly positioned sun terraces enjoying the very best of the views, whilst beyond this is driveway parking and pathways meandering amongst the grounds.
