A charming detached Edwardian cottage set in a superb 0.5 acre plot within the semi-rural hamlet of Woodmancote
Mount Pleasant offers a generous and versatile layout extending to approximately 1550 sq.ft and provides multiple possibilities for the incoming buyer including annexe accommodation and extension (subject to the usual planning and consents). The property boasts a wealth of charming character features throughout, and is enhanced by its fantastic outside space.
A covered entrance opens into the hallway with stairs leading to the first floor. At the front to the property there are two reception rooms; a formal dining room, and a cosy sitting room with open fireplace. From the sitting room a door opens into the great sized kitchen/breakfast room which is fitted with a range of wall and base units, breakfast bar, and an adjoining utility room providing access to outside. From the dining room an inner hallway gives access to a bathroom, and has a door into the annexe style accommodation comprising a bedroom, bathroom, open-plan kitchenette/sitting room, and utility room.
Upstairs the landing has a storage cupboard and hatch to the loft space, and provides access to three double bedrooms (two having original fireplaces), and a spacious family bathroom featuring a modern white suite with overhead Mira shower and glass screen.
Enjoying a semi-rural location with an open aspect, this charming property is approached via a double drive with lawned area between and mature planted borders. Both drives are laid to shingle with one having a gate to a further parking area able to serve four cars.
The extensive rear garden is predominantly laid to lawn with mature planted borders and hedging, and has a large patio area at the rear of the house with a delightful shingled seating area to the side. Currently at the end of the plot there is an animal pen occupying approximately 1000 sq.ft of the garden. All in all, this garden is a fantastic offering and for a buyer looking for a quieter way of life and the opportunity to create their forever home, it’s one not to miss.
The property is situated on the outskirts of the hamlet of Woodmancote, just to the north of the village of Southbourne which offers a good range of local amenities including convenience stores, railway station with links to Chichester and London, churches, and doctors surgery. Primary and secondary schools are also close by. Further afield Emsworth has specialist shops as well as its quay fronting the head of Chichester harbour where many harbourside walks can be enjoyed. The cathedral city of Chichester is situated approximately 6 miles to the east with its more comprehensive shopping facilities and an excellent variety of bars and restaurants.
