There is a double garage (17'3" x 16'8") with power and light. A gate opens the side garden where a path leads to the front door past the well placed terraces with climbing roses making the ideal spot for al fresco dining or an evening's drink. The main garden is south-facing and has a neat lawn and plenty of flowers and shrubs providing colour along with some mature trees.
