The Mount is believed to date from the early 20th century and displays an abundance of features from this popular late Victorian period. These properties were largely designed and commissioned by wealthy families who wanted to entertain and enjoy their grounds and thus incorporated well proportioned rooms with large windows and excellent garden access.
All rooms are of a good size with generous ceiling height and a plethora of period charm. The drawing room is of particular note as it has a bank of sash windows flooding the room with natural light. A sense of warmth is provided with stripped pine floors and a spectacular centrepiece fireplace which is offset beautifully with the recessed stained glass windows and bath stone surround. The unique fireplaces continue throughout the house as does the period charm. The sitting room and dining room have a pleasant southerly aspect over the formal gardens and offer an alternative to the generous drawing room. The kitchen breakfast room has been opened up and refurbished in recent years and offers a true ‘heart of the home’ with good quality appliances and ample space for tables and chairs as well as a large dresser. The kitchen is supported by the boot room which has a number of storage cupboards, space and plumbing for washers and dryers.
Rising the sweeping staircase to the first floor the accommodation is informally split to provide four bedrooms and two bathrooms to one side and either a generous master suite or guest accommodation to the other. The principal bedroom which enjoys both a well fitted dressing room and opulent en suite again has a wonderful feature fireplace and stained glass windows mirroring the formal drawing room below.
Upper Seagry is a well regarded Wiltshire village due to its popular and well attended primary school and facilities which include ‘The New Inn’ pub as well as its convenient access to both London link trains and the M4 motorway network. The nearby village of Great Somerford provides additional facilities including post office, village shop, pub and primary school.
The Mount is situated on the edge of the village offering both an extensive community and also a more open feel. The Mount is one of the principal houses of the village. Many of the local residents enjoy the exceptional schools such as St Mary’s and St Margaret’s in Calne, Beaudesert Park, Marlborough College, Westonbirt Prep and Westonbirt School. For the commuter, mainline railway connections from Chippenham and Swindon offer services To London Paddington in 75 minutes and 60 minutes respectively as well as excellent access to the M4 motorway network at Junction 17.
Wiltshire is prized for its many excellent leisure pursuits. Those with a sporting interest can enjoy golf at Bowood, Minchinhampton and Castle Combe, racing at Bath and Newbury, rugby at Bath and water sports at the Cotswolds Water Park.
The beautifully appointed Cotswold stone wall allows access via bespoke wrought iron gates to the turning circle at the front of the property. The gates are electrically operated and automatically lit to provide both an impressive entrance and extra security. The flint chip driveway provides parking for a number of cars and in turn leads to the garaging and stable block which could provide further garaging subject to planning. The house enjoys excellent screening from the surrounding houses and a beautifully stocked and well maintained garden which is mainly laid to lawn with a number of feature areas including topiary garden, fruit trees and a woodland walk. The extensive stable block has a number of original features and could easily be converted to holiday accommodation, further garaging, or, studio use, subject to the necessary planning permissions. At the top of the yard is a separate spa building which houses the spa which includes a hot tub, sauna, steam room, shower and wc.
