The grounds are a great feature of the house, being 6.5 acres in all. The front paddock, contains outbuildings, currently supporting an aquatics business and is completely secluded from the house. The house itself is set within formal landscaped gardens. The heated swimming pool is fully enclosed by mature laurel hedging and the area contains a changing room area with toilets and storage. The formal gardens are partially separated from a large rear paddock by an avenue of mature beech trees. This paddock has been left partially fallow to support the growth of local, wild flowers, which include wild primroses, cowslips and orchids. The rear paddock is separated by fencing and gates from the woodland area of the gardens, where there are beautiful and far reaching views over the vale of Aylesbury.
