The house is tucked away from the roadside, sheltered by mature yet easily managed planting on the roadside of the plot. The principal gardens spread to the front of the house where there is a stone paved patio and lawned garden surrounded by herbaceous borders, all of which take full advantage of the south and westerly position, with open views across the valley beyond neighbouring rooftops. Within the garden is position for a hot tub (the hot tub is available by separate negotiation).

From the roadside a long gated drive winds past the garden and to the side of the house. Towards the rear, a pleasant patio with landscaped borders adjacent to the kitchen entrance. Ample car parking, space for the erection of a garage for which there is current planning consent and to create a south facing patio style garden if need be, adjacent to the lower ground floor accommodation which would similarly take advantage of the delightful southerly aspect.

Note: The current owners presently lease under licence an area of amenity and woodland which lies adjacent to the rear and side boundaries. It is believed this arrangement can be taken up by future owners although subject to formal confirmation.
