DESCRIPTION

Halls are delighted with instructions to offer Mount Pleasant, near Northwood, for sale by private treaty.

Mount Pleasant is an attractively appointed genuine country cottage of great charm and character, in need of complete modernisation and refurbishment, in a lovely unspoilt rural location, with extensive gardens, a versatile range of farm buildings, to include a single storey brick barn with huge potential, and superb adjoining grass paddocks extending, in all, to 14.5 acres, or thereabouts.

The cottage offers interesting internal accommodation, which is now dated and in need of a scheme of modernisation and refurbishment throughout, providing purchasers with the opportunity to renovate according to their own individual tastes and preferences. At present, the accommodation comprises a ground floor Utility Room, Bathroom, Living Room, Kitchen/Breakfast Room, Entrance Hall and Dining Room together with 2 / 3 first floor Bedrooms. The property has the benefit of an oil fired central heating system and is double glazed.

The gardens are a major feature of the property and are down to mature lawns with an interesting pool feature and includes a detached former dairy building, now used for garaging.

Across the quiet country lane is a range of outbuildings to include a traditional L-shaped brick former shippon, which now has immense potential for a variety of alternative usages, including residential, subject to necessary planning permission. There are further outbuildings adjacent to this, being former young stock housing, workshops etc.

The land is a major feature of the property and is retained in two principal enclosures, one of which is to the side of the house and gardens, and extends to 3.5 acres, and the other being behind the farm buildings, extending to just under 11 acres, or thereabouts. The property extends, in all, to approximately 14.5 acres and should be noted, particularly, by those with equestrian interests.

An inspection of Mount Pleasant is strongly recommended to appreciate the potential that it has to offer and its superb unspoilt location, within easy reach of nearby centres.

Stamp Duty Calculator

Stamp Duty Total

You usually pay Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) on increasing portions of the property price above £125,000 when you buy residential property, eg a house or flat.

There are different rules if you’re buying your first home and the purchase price is £500,000 or less.

You’ll usually have to pay 3% on top of the normal SDLT rates if buying a new residential property means you’ll own more than one.

You won’t pay the extra 3% SDLT if the property you’re buying is replacing your main residence and that has already been sold.
