To the front of the property, a gravelled drive gives access to the single garage and provides parking for three vehicles. There is also an area of lawn and some attractive mature shrubs. A gated side access leads to the delightful rear garden with a south westerly aspect, which is divided into two sections by a full width pergola. There are areas of lawn, a productive fruit section with raspberries, gooseberries and currant bushes. The terrace behind the house is an ideal space for summer dining and entertaining. A pretty alpine style summerhouse is found to the rear of the garden and there is also a garden shed. The whole plot is well screened by mature deciduous trees, hedging and timber panel fencing which gives a sense of seclusion.
