Mount Eaton, what can I say but it exudes elegance, grandeur, and absolute charm. The light that penetrates through the house is amazing, the sense of space, the sheer volume yet giving an air of manageability. The house was built in 1810 and has all the characteristics of its era. The extension which was put on in 1880 is representative of Victorian architecture with its use of full-height bay windows and dormer windows. Not only does the extension add more room but it adds to overall look of the property.
The garden is another uplifting feature of the property – it almost has an Italian feel to it – tropical even. There are some beautiful trees, flowers and scrubs hidden away amongst the overgrowth.
Mount Eaton House is a detached house measuring 4400 Sq. Ft on an acre of land – set in a housing estate, you would never see it but once inside the gates you are faced with this impressive and quite intriguing property.
Features, winding staircase that winds up to the two floors, ceiling are 10ft high and the rooms are a lovely proportion. These are but a few of the stunning features.
The house faces south over the harbour and the site itself is extremely private.
The house today does need work and needs a loving pair of hands to bring it back to its former glory and once inside you will see it deserves it. The whole package once renovated would make an amazing home.
The land itself has a double garage attached to the house to the East Wing and plenty of nooks and crannies in the garden itself.
You enter the property via gates and then to the main entrance of the house. The driveway is the property of Mount Eaton House but the owner of the land to the rear has a right of way which by no means interferes with the privacy of the house.
Location wise Mount Eaton is located to the East of the town, only a 10 min walk to the centre of the town and train station, the local shops, schools and bus stop only up the road, so location wise you are in an ideal spot.
A fantastic opportunity to acquire a piece of history.
