Mount Pleasant Close has been in the same ownership for 37 years, which is a testament to the well-proportioned, presented, light and airy accommodation that the property provides. Built in the 1930’s of red brick and rendered elevations beneath a tiled roof, the property has been the subject of a comprehensive program of improvements over the years, whilst retaining a number of period details such as the original front door and panelled internal doors. It is felt there is scope for further extending or remodelling if required (subject to the necessary consents), as the property stands in good sized and attractively planted grounds, with a large gravelled driveway and double garage.
Stoford is a small village with a well-regarded public house, located approximately 3½ miles north of the market town of Wilton, which provides a wide range of services for day to day living; including a well-thought of doctors surgeries, a dentist, butchers, two convenience stores, a weekly market, cafes, hairdressers, osteopaths, public houses, The Pembroke Arms Hotel as well as the impressive Palladian style Wilton House. There is a regular bus service as well as Park and Ride to the centre of the cathedral city of Salisbury, which has a wide range of shopping, educational, leisure and cultural facilities.
