Rear 
The particular feature of this period home is the beautifully landscaped and manicured south facing rear gardens which span to approximately 3/4 of an acre. To begin there is a large beautifully maintained lawn with an abundance of herbacious plants and shrubs. There are several established fruit trees to include damson, plum, apple and walnut. The garden slopes down to the rear which provides uninterrupted views as far as the eye can see. Our current vendor advises there is an abundance of wildlife regularly visiting the gardens.
There is an ornamental pond on the terrace to the side and to the adjacent side of the property there is a working well located on the sun terrace.
To the side of the property there is a large side strip of land currently being used as a separate vegetable garden with green house and solid timber out houses. This side strip would be highly suitable for those looking to have a small holding.
Also located within the grounds is a timber summer house looking over the extensive gardens.

Outbuildings 
Covered storage area accessed from the dining room and rear garden with numerous additional store rooms which in our opinion offer significant scope for extension/ conversion (subject to planning).
The current store rooms are used for wash room / large walk in pantry with plumbing in place.
