The front garden is long with central path leading from a wrought iron gate, bisecting neat lawns with established hedging and well stocked shrub borders. The gardens then extend around both sides of the property to the rear, with a productive vegetable garden, greenhouse, gardens sheds, several areas for sitting with patio or hardstanding. The rear garden adjoins woodland, while to the front there are views over open fields.

Please note Orchard Lea was originally a tied cottage that went with the MOD land adjacent; originally purchased from them by the current owners. There is an agreement in existence relating to a stretch of land to the side of the property, which the vendors rent and use as a driveway, at an annual rental of £127. This may be subject to review as the vendor was a previous employee of the MOD. It is felt however that if this arrangement does not continue there is ample space to the front of the garden for the creation of off lane parking or indeed a double garage, if required, subject to any necessary permissions.

Mains water and electricity connected. Solid fuel heating via the Rayburn. Separate immersion heating. Private cesspool drainage.
Agents Note: There is a water meter located in the garden for the MOD yard, which is to the side of the property.
