There is a large shed/workshop (6.0m x 3.0m) which could convert to a garage, and a further large timber shed. (Both have lighting and power outlets.)
There is also an aluminium framed Greenhouse (12ft. x 8ft.) .

A generous Deck / Barbecue Area (5.5m x 3.7m approx) is partially enclosed by the structure of the building.
The gardens are currently 'ornamental' in style, greatly enhanced by shrubs and trees, therefore requiring fairly low maintenance.
Springtime brings on a glorious display of colour lasting several weeks from species of differing flowering periods.
