In an age where grand country manors are divided into flats and where the vintage stonework of the exterior is no more than a veneer for the stripped back minimalism inside; The Mount stands firm in its heritage.

Built by the Alexander family (local Kendal brewers) in 1900 on an elevated plot, The Mount is aptly named. One of the last bastions of traditional stone-built town houses in the region, its myriad original features shine through.

Rising above Burneside Road, where a long looping driveway provides access from two directions, the grandeur of The Mount’s gabled three-storey facade reveals itself.

Approaching from the rear, pass by the manicured putting green, a reflection of the sloping fairways of Kendal Golf Club above. The full scope of land and space here becomes increasingly apparent.

As the stained-glass-fronted entrance porch appears, look up to spy the original date stone bearing the inscription ‘1900’. Step through the door onto the mosaic of original floor tiles in this roomy atrium; plenty of room to shuffle bags and de-boot here.

Push open the robust door to reveal a secondary entrance hall, with doors leading off to a delightfully traditional WC and a large cloakroom. To the left, a wall of mahogany panelled, tantalising stained-glass entreats.

Yearning for that ‘wow-factor’ first impression? Brace yourselves…
