Hidden behind a large laurel hedge there is a secret garden with block paved patio and a building which incorporates a lawnmower and pool shed with a summerhouse that has a fitted kitchen with cooking facilities; it is on Indian flagstone tiles and there is a WC and sink. This makes an excellent space for al fresco dining and late entertaining. To the rear and side of the property there is a sizeable level lawn with laurel hedge boundaries and at the very bottom, every gardener’s dream of a semi glazed potting shed with light roof as well as raised beds and a soft fruit cage.

A gravelled pathway also leads into a secure wildlife pond area with decking to the water’s edge and a nice area for evening drinks or dining; at the very bottom of the garden there is a hint of a bluebell wood as well as further wildlife and duck pond.

This property really has tremendous gardens that have been impeccably maintained.
