OFFERS INVITED. A detached, substantial and aspirational five bedroom home benefiting from many elegant features, generous plot and countryside views. EPC Band E.

The Mount is a handsome aspirational detached home privately positioned on the edge of Sparkford with wonderful countryside views and excellent connection links. The main body of the property was built in the 1920's with later additions to the rear offering well proportioned accommodation blending with traditional style and modern convenience to represent the ideal family home. The property sits well within its own substantial plot and as such benefits from generous gardens and private driveway approach, timber double garage and much scope to extend and enhance further, subject to necessary consents. Internally, the accommodation is classically arranged around a central hallway providing considerable flexibility. Three welcoming reception rooms can be found in the 1920's segment of the home with many post Edwardian features being retained to include excellent ceiling heights, delightful carved oak fireplaces, original panelled doors and picture rails. The heart of the home is without doubt the farmhouse style kitchen complete with oil fired Aga, granite worktops, solid wooden base and wall units, Belfast twin bowl sink, double electric oven and four ring electric hob, extractor hood and plumbing for washing machine, dishwasher and white goods. The ground floor living extends further with a fantastic garden room extension currently being utilised as a wonderful dining area from which to sit and enjoy superb south facing views over open countryside and local landmarks to include Corton Denham Ridge and Cadbury Hill. As you would expect from this size of property the ground floor is complete with a most useful utility room housing the oil fired boiler with additional range of worktops, base units and plumbing for white goods and ground floor cloakroom. An elegant staircase rises to the first floor where there are five bedrooms, four of which are of generous double proportions, again with a plethora of art deco features to include cast iron fireplaces, pedestal wash basins and exposed brickwork detaining. The principal bedroom benefiting from wonderful views south westerly over the extensive countryside. All bedrooms are served by two bathrooms both of which benefiting from panelled bath, Heritage pedestal sink units and WC's, which sit side by side and could easily be renovated into one larger suite if so desired.

The Mount lies to the centre of the village of Sparkford that lies to the north of both the historic Abbey town of Sherborne and the local regional centre of Yeovil. The village has a filling station/mini supermarket on the west side, a church, a village hall, a public house and a cricket club while both Sherborne and Yeovil provide between them an excellent range of cultural, recreational and shopping facilities. Sporting, walking and riding opportunities abound within the area with golf clubs at Wheathill, Sherborne and Yeovil while the region is well known for both its public and privately funded schools. Communication links are good with main line stations at both Castle Cary and Sherborne linking directly with London Paddington and London Waterloo respectively while road links are along the A303 joined nearby giving swift access to London and the Home Counties along the M3, M25 route.

The Mount is sat in a mature, largely private plot amounting to 0.62 acre, much of which is arranged as an enclosed side and rear garden. The property benefits from a beautiful approach with the striking facade of the home catching the eye as you drive up the gravel drive to both the ample parking area and access to the timber double garage with light and power. French doors lead from the garden room out onto the rear gardens and super south facing sun terrace, a large area from which to relax and unwind enjoying the beautiful countryside views. Keen gardeners have the opportunity for further landscape gardening if desired with a variety of specimen trees and mature shrub borders already in place. To the side of the property is a large expanse of level lawn which can be easily maintained and offers an excellent family space.
