OUTSIDE

To the front the property is approached via a shared access shingle driveway.

The front garden is laid to a herbaceous border and there is access down the side, with a water tap, to the rear garden. The large rear garden is well established and affords a good level of privacy. It is enclosed by brick wall, fencing and hedging, being laid principally to lawn with borders, a good sized paved patio area and there is a plastic oil tank. An attractive archway leads through to a second area of garden, which is enclosed by brick wall and fencing and is currently overgrown. It is felt that this area would be ideal, cultivated as a vegetable plot or for family buyers, suitable as a separated play area, away from the main, more formal garden.
