Externally the property sits within its own private gardens which envelop the property and provide various patios, planting areas and lawned garden suitable for children playing. Fully enclosed, the property was built with a southerly aspect for excellent sun all day long. There are various mature trees which offer privacy and seclusion around the gardens. To the rear of the property is a greenhouse with mature grapevines along with a modest amount of rear and side garden, outside gardeners toilet and patio abutting the house.
