Courtyard Garden 
2 Chapel Place is approached by foot across a charming cobbled alleyway which is shared with several neighbouring properties. As the alleyway turns into the courtyard No.2 is the last property found tucked away in the far corner.
The area of paved courtyard garden pertaining to No.2 includes a deep corner shrub bed lying alongside the workshop. This courtyard combined with two outbuildings offer great potential to be professionally developed and landscaped to create an exciting area of outdoor space with seating areas strategically positioned to take full advantage of the glorious south westerly aspect. Subject to any necessary planning consents there may be the potential to design and build an imaginative construction of decking perhaps with steps leading up to a raised balcony area above the utility outbuilding creating more outdoor space which would attract the afternoon and early evening sunshine; the perfect environment for a touch 'alfresco style' ...
