Outside there are extensive mature gardens, 1.56 acres of paddocks, swimming pool (no heating equipment and in need of maintenance), detached garage, store shed and 3 loose boxes with feed store. Whilst the house would benefit from some decorative TLC Moor Row house was extensively re-wired in 2011 and new boilers were installed in 2002.
