A Cotswold stone boundary wall lies at the front with a central gated entrance leading to a circular drive with plenty of private parking. There are various mature trees and a small lawned area which runs around the one side of the house to the rear. The rear garden, with its staggering open aspect across a jointly owned field to the valley beyond, is absolutely fantastic and obviously a major selling point. Believed to have once had a tennis court this enclosed level lawn has abundantly filled flower borders on both sides. The rear boundary is also an attractive Cotswold stone wall.
