Set in established grounds with plenty of parking and double garage this has to be one of the finest properties in the area.

The main garden is split into two areas, the first being laid to lawn with planted borders, mature trees and gazebo. From here a raised decking walkway leads delightfully through trees to a private seating area overlooking the lower section of garden with far reaching views over the countryside towards the coast. This second garden area is also laid to lawn and includes 'Dill Tarn', a generous garden pond with water cascade.
