Outside 
Old Farm is set back from the road behind an established evergreen hedge and a wide expanse of lawn which incorporates a variety of flower and shrub beds. A 5-bar gate to the side opens on to a gravelled driveway which leads to a parking area to the rear and to an open fronted Cartlodge Style Garage 18'4 x 16'10 (5.59m x 5.13m) and a Gabriel Ash Greenhouse. The rear garden enjoys a southerly aspect; it is not over-looked and is a particularly fine feature of the property.. An extensive brick paviour terrace, with rose clad pergola, adjoins the rear elevation and leads to a cottage style garden with areas of lawn bordered by deep well stocked flower and shrub beds, which create a wonderful array of colour. Adjoining the south eastern corner of the house is an oak framed Store Room 10'7 x 7'6 (3.05m x 2.28m) constructed with weatherboard clad elevations on a brick plinth and an adjacent Gardener's WC.
