Outside
The beautiful garden wraps around the property and is mainly laid to lawn with mature trees to the boundary some fruit bearing. The rear boundary of the garden is currently fenced and has a gate opening to the paddock. The new owner has the option to take down the fence and increase the gardens size substantially or keep it fenced and utilise as a paddock for a small pony. The views across the garden and over the paddock towards the countryside beyond are exceptional.

There is an extremely useful outbuilding with a store and gardener's WC. The outbuilding has a pitched tiled roof and is in keeping with the main residence with beautiful black and white beamed exterior and wooden doors.

To the front there is a driveway providing parking for several vehicles which leads to the side where there is a double garage.
