As mentioned, Millicent Hill is set on approximately 5.85 acres of mature gardens with about 2 acres set in forestry and the remaining in expansive lawn areas and mature planting. Approached via electric gates, a sweeping driveway opens to a wide gravelled frontage surrounded by manicured lawns which are bordered by a wide variety of mature trees, shrubbery and flowering plants to include several camellias, Thuja, two weeping pear trees, silver birch, Japanese maples, a yew tree and bamboo all of which are bordered by mature spruce trees.
The magnificent eucalyptus viminalis was planted by the original owner along the banks of the Dargle, which was listed as a European heritage garden. On the grounds there is a detached garage with gallery above and substantial below-floor storage and independent oil fired heating system. It also houses the pellet boiler providing heat to the house. This is ideal for storing all your gardening needs along with a pellet boiler or could be converted for many purposes subject to planning permission.
