About Mount Pleasant
If you are looking for a home that also provides a ‘retreat’ from the hustle and bustle of a modern-day busy work life, then this is it! Mount Pleasant occupies a fabulous spot hidden away off Moor Side Edge behind private woodland yet is open at the front to the adjoining countryside and panoramic views stretching for miles and miles. Little is known about the history of the property, but it is shown on the 1854 OS map and would likely have been some sort of farm dwelling. The current owner purchased the property in 1990 as a semi-derelict building and after completely renovating and extending it, they transformed Mount Pleasant into one of the most enviable homes on the hillside. It has an oil fired central heating system, double glazing, and an intruder alarm. This immaculately maintained home offers a utility/reception hall, office/lounge, sitting room, dining kitchen, inner hallway with access to a downstairs w.c. on the ground floor, whilst on the first floor you will find 4 double bedrooms, a bathroom, and shower room.

Externally, the sweeping driveway brings you down to ample space for parking and turning, pleasant gardens to all sides, a huge stone paved sun terrace running along the whole frontage of the property, and access to a boiler house and detached workshop. Our vendor rents 2 adjoining paddocks, amounting to around 1 acre, from the Dartmouth Estate which are accessed via a gate on the driveway. We have confirmation from the Estate that the new owners have the option to take on this land for an annual rent of £400.

You will find a good variety of shops, bars, restaurants, and train station in both the nearby villages of Slaithwaite and Marsden. It is also only a short drive to junctions 23 & 24 of the M62 motorway for those who commute to any of the surrounding major conurbations on a regular basis.
