Mount Pleasant is a mansion from the 18th century, located on Sharrow Lane in Sheffield, South Yorkshire. This grade 2 listed building is roughly 2km south of the city centre proper, and is probably one of the most impressive houses from that period still standing in Sheffield to date.
It was built by Francis Hurt Sitwell in 1777, with help from the architect John Platt from Rotherham. When it was first built it was surrounded by farmland overlooking the River Sheaf, however it has undergone many changes over the years, for example in 1868 it was used for 5 years to help with overcrowded hospitals.
The building itself is made from brick, and uses hipped slate on the roof, standing 3 stories high, and a full height canted bay window on its south edge.
