THE GROUNDS 

Front 
Tudor House has a wide walled frontage with intercom and remote controlled gate to the sweeping gravel driveway with turning circle around a colourful shrub bed. The drive is edged by low walls with decorative lantern style lighting. To the front there is a shaped lawn with steps down to a SUMMER HOUSE which has lighting and the controls for the pump on the ornamental fishpond alongside.

The Lawned Garden 
To the left hand side of the drive there is a further area of lawn with mature shrubs and conifers screening the boundaries. A stone path leads to a feature urn with spotlight for night drama and to the left is an archway into the patios surrounding the pool.

GARAGE 
16' 5'' x 10' 5'' (5.01m x 3.17m)
Twin timber doors, light and power. Wall-mounted Glow Worm 35ci gas central heating boiler which heats the pool. Personal door into the Carport and courtyard by the door to the Kitchen.

CARPORT

The carport forms the covered link between the drive and the informal entrance door to the dining area of the kitchen.

The Swimming Pool and Terraces 
The heated pool has solar cover and is attractively surrounded by stone paving with steps to the right onto a sheltered patio that catches the late afternoon sun. From here there is a further terrace and lawn to the side of the house with arch and gate into the field. To the left hand side of the pool there is a pergola covered sitting area with lighting and power point. A rustic arch gives views of the side garden. There is outdoor lighting around all seating areas and the pool can be floodlit.

To the left of the garage is located the heat pump that maintains pool water temperature once the heating boiler has brought the water to the desired heat. Beyond this is a small brick outhouse which shelters the pool filtration system. Beyond there is screening for bin storage.
