Exterior The property is initially approached through a white picket gate with a path which leads to the main entrance, bordered by an array of mature shrubs. To the front of the property, the garden is considered to be of an exceptional size, laid to lawn with a variety of mature trees, plants and bushes, bordering a traditional Cornish dry wall. Depending on the season, far reaching countryside views can be appreciated, fronting on farm land. Access to the side of the property provides parking for a number of cars, also laid to lawn and extends to the rear. On the additional side of the farmhouse, there is a wild flower garden which will require a landscape programme, with access to a substantial outbuilding, believed to be once a pig sty. There is also a range of fruit trees and pleasant seating areas where the views can be full appreciated. The exterior lends itself well to the most avid of horticulturalists, with ample space for timber sheds, greenhouse or poly tunnels.
