General Description Outside - The property sits within just over 0.5 of an acre plot and is accessed via double opening wrought iron gates. A gravelled driveway meanders past the front of the house to the side of the property to a large DETACHED DOUBLE GARAGE with pitched roof, twin up and over doors and providing excellent storage space. There is additional pedestrian access direct from the courtyard to the garage and ample off road parking for multiple vehicles. This property is beautifully set back from Oldfield Road, behind well established mature hedging and trees. The driveway is complemented by a well tended lawned garden with borders stocked with mature shrubs and bushes and raised beds retained by original stone borders. The garden is steeped in history in itself with stone steps and pathway which have been engraved and dated May 1826. There is a beautiful herringbone stone wall that curves round to the garage. From the garage block, a pathway extends to a gate which gives access to:

Rear Courtyard - Accessed directly from the kitchen, with stone pathway and cobbled courtyard area where there is access to a gardener's WC with white low level WC, wash basin and glazed window. Water butt. Outside cold water supply. A further gate opens to stone steps which extend to the orchard and large garden pond. Additional steps up lead to an orchard with ample space for organic vegetable patches. Large greenhouse, pergola and to the far end, there is additional garden space that is enclosed by mature hedging and screened by well established trees. Finally, there is a very unusual and rare mulberry tree within the garden that has been here, we believe, since the property was original constructed. Pear Tree Cottage gains its name from a large pear tree that historically used to occupy the garden but sadly fell over the years, but the original stump is within the garden, hence the name Pear Tree Cottage. There are additional meandering stone pathways throughout the garden with additional herringbone raised brick boundary walls.

Note - The property has been recently been re-roofed and is steeped with history and potential. Whilst it has been beautifully well maintained over the years, it now requires some areas of modernisation.
