The grounds are a particular feature of the property having been landscaped by the current

flower borders, a variety of fruit trees and the
essential potting sheds. The manicured lawn to the front aspect is bordered by mature trees and enjoys spectacular views over the adjacent farmland. The house is approached over a delightful sweeping drive, flanked to either side

generous parking area.
