Outside
The property stands in a large and well established plot. The front garden is laid to lawn and bordered by well stocked flower and shrub beds. Secure side access leads to the extensive rear garden and which is divided into various sections and will provide endless hours of enjoyment for garden enthusiasts and adventurous children, made safe and secure by the established hedge and tree boundaries.

A timber garden shed provides useful storage and there is also an aluminium framed greenhouse and a substantial block constructed building which may offer potential to convert into a home office. A soft fruit and vegetable garden has clearly been very productive in past years and beyond this point the gardens drop to a lower level which is best described as a small dell with shallow brook.
