EXTERNAL
The majority of the site lies to the south and is sectioned into three sets of garden terraces.

In our opinion the most attractive external area is the balcony off the upper floor living room. This has both elevated and panoramic view, which really have to be seen to be appreciated.

The first section lies adjacent to the sitting/dining room access and has a superb paved sitting area with fine views in three directions.

The second section enjoys two sets of formal borders and an additional large stone sun terrace.

The third section is laid out to lawn, paths and borders.

There is a passageway from Front Street through a wrought iron gate with space for bins and storage. There are also garden borders and handrail for access to the south.
