The gardens are a delightful feature being secluded and private with lawns, planting, mature trees and a terrace adjoining the conservatory.

Owermoigne is a very pretty and popular village focused around the village green and the Church of St Michaels. The character of the centre of the village is of pretty thatched cottages and period farmhouses with a mix of modern and period architecture on the outskirts. The village has a long history and the church itself certainly dates back to at least 1333 but is believed to be much older.

In the village itself there is a garage, farm shop and garden centre. The nearby villages of Wool and Winfrith Newburgh all have village stores/post offices and slightly further afield Dorchester, Weymouth and Wareham all have a much broader range of facilities. Also in the village is the village cricket club with its membership open to all villagers and the village hall offering social activities. The area has a range of good primary, middle and secondary education and lies in the Thomas Hardy catchment area. There are also a good range of private schools in the area. Main line railway services run from Moreton and Wool stations to London Waterloo and there are good road links to the larger local and regional commercial centres.

From East Farm Lane a pair or wrought iron gates gives access to the driveway and the DOUBLE GARAGE with twin up and over electrically operated doors, light and power.
To the front of Glebe House there are planted borders and the bank which follows East Farm Lane back to Church Lane is under the ownership of the property. A pedestrian gate gives access from the front to the side.
The beautifully landscaped gardens are private and secluded being primarily lawned with numerous flowering trees and shrubs to the beds and borders together with various fruit trees. To the corner of the garden is a paved sitting area with stone walling and water feature which meanders through to the paved patio which is adjacent to the conservatory. Paved paths follow the rear elevation and lead to the garage. There is an automatic watering system for the garden, log store and external security lighting.
