OUTSIDE The property stands in a mature total plot of about 0.2 of an acre (sts). To the front there is a large block paved carriage driveway providing vehicular standing for several cars.

(Subject to the usual planning permissions, the Double Garage could be converted into an ANNEXE or other additional accommodation and the roof space above offers potential to be converted into further living or bedroom accommodation, if required). There is a planted herbaceous bed and a slate chipping border. To the side is a good size area of garden laid principally to lawn with mature hedging and it is felt that this offers, if required, the scope to erect more Garaging (stp).

This is about 21.34m (70') long, being enclosed by fencing and hedging and affording a good degree of privacy and seclusion, with a view of St Nicholas' church spire. It is laid principally to extensive lawn with good size paved patio area, dwarf brick retaining wall with steps to lawn, established herbaceous borders with mature trees and shrubs, enclosed natural pond area, new (April 2020) bunded plastic oil tank and outside water tap.
