There are just under 4 hectares of land with the property. This equates to just under 10 acres (9.8 acres). It is mostly laid to lawn. The vast majority of the land is managed by the local farmer who cuts the grass and/or grows crops on the land. This arrangement can either be continued, or not, depending on the new owner's requirements for the land. The current arrangement ensures it's relatively easy to maintain everything as there is just a small part of it all around the house and pool that requires regular tending and cutting. There is also a separate, lovely lawn area between the 2 barns with a charming children's swing hanging from a majestic Oak.
There are 2 large parking areas, laid to gravel, one immediately in front of the house and one in front of the barn, both of which have room for at least a dozen cars to park!
