Each room is well proportioned, and the property has a lovely flow, with numerous access points onto the stunning landscaped gardens.

The gardens, as seen in the photos, are beautiful, peaceful and established. Keen gardeners would love this space, and it is also suitable for families, having large lawn areas, and entertaining spaces. There is a well maintained pond, and tucked away summer house, two of the many features within the garden. There is also another wrap around garden in the form of a composite decking area (sun trap) and planted shingle walkway with well stocked borders, that run the perimeter of the boundary line.

The property runs an oil fired central heating system, with the boiler to be found in the garage, and two oil tanks at the rear of the property, cleverly tucked away from the main garden. There is a large log store adjacent to the garage, enabling good stock to be kept for the large feature log burning stove in the sitting room.

The garage/ workshop is a superb offering, those with a home business, or hobbies involving engineering of sorts would love this space.
