The property is set in the middle of a generous 0.25 acre plot, that is approached via its own private driveway, that offers extensive parking, with the potential to create a single or double garage (STPP). The gardens encircle the property to the rear and to both sides and have been lovingly tended over recent years to create an attractive cottage-style garden, with a number of defined areas. To the west of the house there are a series of lawned terraces, inset with mature planting, with an adjacent path that leads to the front door and then rises to an area of level lawn, with wooden frames, and mature rose bushes. This then extends out to a further area of lawned garden, enclosed by mature hedging, that provides a high level of seclusion, with flower beds and a timber outbuilding. In addition, to the front of the property there is a raised decking platform, that affords a wonderful view out over the surrounding countryside and the picturesque duck pond, set to the front of the house.
