The established gardens and grounds at Kiplings are a delight and, at approaching half an acre, are remarkably generous in proportion. Over the years, they have been lovingly landscaped and maintained to provide a cornucopia of colour and interest throughout the seasons. The gardens are encompassed by a range of established trees and flowering shrubs creating good levels of privacy and seclusion.

The property is approached through a five bar gate and over a Tarmac driveway providing parking for several vehicles. Adjacent is the brick built double garage, which provides space for two vehicles along with extensive storage space.

A brick feature archway gives access from the front to the rear gardens, where a sunny cobbled terrace flanks the rear of the property. This offers the perfect sheltered and private spot for summer parties and entertaining. Nearby is a pretty raised ornamental pond incorporating aquatic plants creating a delightful focal point and encouraging wildlife visitors into the garden. There are sweeping lawns, creating masses of space for children’s games and areas to sit, relax and enjoy the surroundings.

A timber summer house with decked terrace has been thoughtfully placed to enjoy all day sun. It has French doors and power and light connected, creating opportunities for year round use. There is also a useful timber garden store, greenhouse and productive fruit bushes.

Other attractive features of the garden include a rose clad staggered pergola, a rhododendron walk which is awash with colour in the spring and under-planted with bluebells, numerous mature specimen trees and neatly clipped flowering shrubs and hedges.
