The home is quietly positioned on a rural road and has an elevated position so offers plenty of privacy and lovely rural views. The garden is found to the rear and side of the home and is predominantly laid to lawn. There is a paved seating area ideal for al-fresco dining and entertaining in privacy, a path then leads to an additional seating area at the bottom of the lower side garden. The side and lower side garden are encompassed by beautiful mature trees and hedged boundaries naturally dividing the garden into wonderful usable spaces. Adjoining the outbuilding is a storage shed for wood. To the side there are double gates leading to the village lane allowing access for an off road parking space.
