There are quaint steps and pathways taking you to the most amazing lawns, tree-lined and landscaped with perfumed shrubs and flowers. To the bottom is woodland giving privacy to the house and a haven for wild life.

To the front of the house is further woodland extending to the road and areas for home planting with traditional fruit/vegetable trees and plants. The front offers great scope for further landscaping. The property also benefits a detached, pitched roof triple garage/worshop. Its size and brick-built construction would lend itself to additional accommodation as potential grannie annexe or self-contained guest accommodation.
