Externally the property has double gates opening to the large, welcoming gravel driveway providing ample parking, open barn/carport and charming, landscaped garden which is mainly laid to lawn with a variety of mature trees, shrubs and hedging with large patio terrace enjoying far reaching views. An internal viewing is highly recommended.
