Location & Description

The Mount is situated on the outskirts of the popular village of Much Marcle which has a very vibrant community and excellent amenities including a church, primary school, village hall, pubs and a garage.

The town of Ledbury is approximately 5 miles distant where there is a wide range of local facilities including shops, schools, churches, hotels, restaurants, doctors surgery, hospital, theatre, bus service and mainline railway station with direct links to Hereford, Worcester, Birmingham New Street and London Paddington. The riverside town of Ross On Wye is a similar distance and provides further excellent facilities, whilst the cities of Hereford, Worcester and Gloucester are all approximately 16 miles distant. The M50 motorway is easily accessible approximately 4 miles to the south of Ledbury.

Believed to date back to the 1700's, The Mount is an impressive Grade II listed detached former farmhouse occupying an elevated position affording panoramic views across the surrounding Herefordshire countryside toward Marcle Ridge and the Malvern Hills. The property has been a much loved family home for over 40 years and has been well maintained by the current vendors. Offering considerable charm and character with a wealth of period features including extensive exposed timbering and feature fireplaces, it truly is a fine family home. Extending to approximately 4791 sq ft, the accommodation is arranged over three floors and on the ground floor comprises an entrance porch, drawing room with a feature inglenook fireplace and a wood burning stove, dining room, garden room, cloakroom, impressive open plan kitchen/breakfast/family room with stairs leading to a double bedroom, utility room and a rear porch. On the first floor a landing leads to the master bedroom, further double bedroom and a family bathroom. On the second floor there are two additional double bedrooms and a shower room. All of the bedrooms enjoy a dual aspect, making the most of the wonderful views on offer. In addition to the main accommodation, there is an adjoining two bedroomed self contained annexe, Mount Cottage, which was built as part of an extension in 1989. Mount Cottage was refurbished throughout in 2020 and on the ground floor comprises entrance porch, large dining kitchen, 28 ft long conservatory, sitting room/double bedroom, shower room and a utility room. On the first floor there is a large landing/study area, spacious living room enjoying a triple aspect and a master bedroom with an en suite bathroom.

Outside, a gravelled driveway provides a generous area of parking and leads to an extensive range of outbuildings including a DOUBLE GARAGE, WORKSHOP, STORE, OUTSIDE OFFICE and a POTTING SHED. Undoubtedly, one of the great strengths of The Mount is its spectacular position, surrounded by mature grounds extending to approximately TWO AND A HALF ACRES with areas laid to lawn, a small woodland and a feature circular garden.
