OUTSIDE
The gardens of The Farmhouse are a delight and have been professionally landscaped. Electric wooden gates open into the spacious gravelled parking area and round to the double garages. A paved courtyard of York stone leads to the front of the house with flower beds filled with lavender and perennial flowers and edged with box hedges. A gate leads to the rear garden and the South-facing paved terrace. Tumbling Wisteria and scented roses climb the walls against the mellow brick of The Farmhouse. The terrace leads to the swimming pool, with safety cover, and to the pool house with two changing rooms. A mature Chestnut tree provides shade from the summer sun. The gated kitchen garden has a protective beech hedge, greenhouse and four productive raised beds. A summer house retreat lies to one side and there is a charming pond with running stream, all fenced.
