It is bordered by mature trees and is surrounded by agricultural land. The garden is of sufficient size to be divided up and fenced to provide an enclosure for horses or other animals. An old chicken shed with enclosure and a greenhouse frame are in place and require a little attention to bring them back to an operational order.

The outside area also incorporates an old well which could be exploited if a pump were installed and there is a further small sitting area by the corner boundary in front of the property.

The tiled roof of the house is in good condition, the guttering was renewed in 2015 and a satellite dish is in place.
