An attractive detached Grade II Listed Period House with elegant and stylish five-bedroom accommodation including four reception rooms and three bathrooms/shower rooms. The accommodation is superbly proportioned, bright and airy whilst the grounds extend to around 5 acres (sts) encompassing formal gardens, grass paddocks to the south and two tree lined wildlife ponds.
Directions To drive to the property from the market town of Brigg take the A18 west, away from the town and proceed to the small roundabout on the outskirts; take the second exit continuing along the A18 towards the M180. After the long, left bend, take the right turn onto the B1208 and follow the road past Artie's Mill to Castlethorpe. Keep ahead passing the no through lane on the right and as you approach the sharp left bend, The Mount will be concealed behind trees on the left. Carry on round this bend and look for the entrance to the property through the metal gates on the left.
Alternatively, from the Forest Pines Hotel and Golf Resort, Broughton, head south to the roundabout, take the 1st exit onto the A18 for around 2.6 miles, and then turn left onto the B1208 and proceed as above.
The Property The Mount was constructed in 1840 and bought by the current owner in 2010 as a family home. The house is of deceptively spacious design, facing south and has a double-gated access set into mature hedges and trees along the eastern boundary, onto a driveway leading to the turning circle before the principal elevation. The property enjoys an open outlook across the immediate gardens and over a dividing "ha-ha" to the owned grass paddocks and towards the smaller of two wildlife ponds.
Viewers are directed (above) to enter the property through the norther gates which presently lead past The Coach house and The Lodge, now converted into two separate dwellings which are also for sale with land. The Mount will solely be accessed through the eastern gates following sale, though the buyer may wish to investigate permission to form a second entrance bay and gateway into the paddock, to the south of the existing entrance.
The house interior has been transformed through imaginative style and improvement to create a light and airy home with beautifully proportioned rooms. The land affords potential for a variety of uses including equestrian, hobby farm, horticultural and leisure use, all subject to appropriate planning permission.
