Gardens and Grounds:
The house is approached along a tarmac drive bordered on either side by post and rail fencing and paddocks. The driveway leads to a turning/parking area to the north west side of the house with a large circular brick water feature. Beyond is a low level wall bordering a large flowerbed and a lawn interspersed by mature specimen trees. Along the southern façade of the house, a brick paved walkway with steps leading down to a formal lawn, leads to an entertaining terrace to the South.
Part of the lawn has been levelled creating a large croquet pitch. Immediately to the east of the house there is an impressive walled garden with vegetable beds and a fruit cage. To one end is an impressive greenhouse complete with cold frames and a further greenhouse. To the east of the walled garden is a delightful apple orchard. To the north east a door gives access to further informal lawns running behind the courtyard and along adjacent to the rear drive.
The gardens are surrounded by numerous paddocks enclosed in post and rail fencing.
