The Secret Cottage is hidden behind the wrought iron gate and private walkway, and accessed from York Road. A timber gate opens to an enclosed front courtyard garden, enjoying a south-easterly aspect, which wraps around the front and side of the cottage and includes a most useful outside cloakroom and purpose built bin store. A side gate provides access to the lovely private rear garden, which is a haven for visiting birds and industrious bees. The garden is enclosed by painted brick walls, laid to lawn and patio, and is edged with a well tended selection of mature planting including a magnificent camellia. Occupying one corner of the garden is a wonderful studio and garden store with power, light and TV aerial, perfect for a home office or for entertaining, which together with the York paved patio offers versatility and alfresco dining in this beautifully tranquil space.
