accommodation across three floors. The house was purchased, by the current owner, in a semi-finished state and in conjunction with David Orton Interiors has been finished to an extremely high specification, featuring high ceilings, bespoke joinery, solid oak hand painted kitchen, sanitary ware by Vitra and double glazed windows to all four sides resulting in a beautifully presented home of immense quality. Set back from The Mount, behind mature hedging with a lawned front garden the property is imposing and dignified. The wide glazed front door opens to a vestibule with space for coats. A glazed internal door then leads to the welcoming spacious hallway with painted doors leading to all ground floor rooms, double storage cupboard, and an oak staircase rising upwards with oak wooden floor. The wide and elegant formal drawing room is to the front and has windows to two sides including a deep bay window with the focus being a contemporary pale stone fireplace with remote control settings. The sitting room/study has windows to the side, door to the hallway and double doors to the dining area with a continuation of the oak flooring and bespoke fitted furniture by David Orton. The impressive vast kitchen dining room is the full width of the house and truly the heart of family living with windows to three sides. This spacious room is divided into two distinct areas with a Carrera marble style porcelain floor. The bespoke solid oak handpainted kitchen by David Orton includes a significant island with curved end and space for barstools, inset porcelain sinks, range cooker, integrated full height fridge, dishwasher and pantry cupboard complemented with unusual Granite worksurfaces and glass splashback. The dining area has ample space for a table and includes further bespoke furniture by David Orton with fitted part glazed china pantry and drinks area. Accessed via double doors the orangery is a phenomenal year round living space with views to the garden, glazed roof and a continuation of the Carrera marble style porcelain floor and full width bifold doors. The utility room, by David Orton, and W.C completes the downstairs accommodation. An attractive wide oak staircase leads from the hall to a wide landing off which lead three bedrooms with a further oak staircase to the second floor. The large principal bedroom faces the front and has a feature bay window, fitted wardrobes running the width of the room and a large en-suite shower room fitted in white. There are two further double bedrooms to the rear, one with walk-in wardrobe the other with double wardrobe and a contemporary family bathroom with double shower and freestanding bath. On the second floor are two double bedrooms with attractively angled ceilings and rural views as well as a contemporary styled family bathroom with double shower and inset bath. Off the landing are two storage cupboards, one with the hot water cylinder. The detached double garage has electric up and over doors, walk-in storage cupboard and staircase to the first floor studio/study. This versatile space would be an ideal home office suite. To the front of the house is a driveway leading to the double garage with the front garden laid to lawn and York stone style pathway to the front door and rear garden gate. The rear gardens to 90 The Mount are a spectacular feature to this house and a tranquil oasis to be enjoyed throughout the seasons. Professionally designed, in a Mediterranean style, and carefully landscaped they are maturing well. With yew hedging to all three sides, a large lawn, pergola and sweeping gravel path the planting includes verbenas, Cyprus trees, grasses and striking red hot pokers. The main terrace is tiled with wood effect porcelain and there are two further seating areas maximising all the sunny aspects of the rear garden throughout the day.
