The attached double garage has a remote roller door, benefits from light and power and has double doors to the rear giving access to the garden.

The house has a substantial, mature garden with a combination of boundary fencing and hedging that provides privacy and seclusion.

A side gate leads to the rear garden where there is a spacious paved terrace which wraps around the rear of the house and is accessed from both the kitchen/dining room and the living room. The paved terrace and an additional decked area, with children's play house, are positioned to offer areas to enjoy the tranquil setting and the sun at various times of the day. The garden is mainly laid to lawn with border planting including a variety of established shrubs and mature trees that offer privacy and shelter. There is a further woodland garden beyond the formal garden which runs down to the Click-em-in Dene, a small burn which flows into the River Tyne.
