A biomass boiler is situated in the Garage and has RHI payments until 2025. The first floor accommodation provides a family orientated layout with three bedrooms family bathroom and a chic shower room. The second floor provides bedroom 4 and bedroom 5/office/play room. A versatile cellar offers useful storage. Generous gardens and timber-built stores complete grounds which overlook an amazing panorama of hills and farmland.

From the shared driveway, a gravel sweep gives access to parking adjacent to the garage for several vehicles. The garden is laid mainly to lawn with mature trees, shrubs and spring bulbs. To the front is a large expanse of lawn bound by a low beech hedge, a number of large mature trees, and carpeted with snowdrops and later daffodils. To the side of the garage is a decorative gravel bed. The side garden is again to lawn, semi-divided by a sandstone wall. Bordering this is a laurel and rhododendron bank which has recently been cut back to make the most of the panoramic views. The garage houses the biomass boiler and provides ample storage for pellet bags and garden equipment. Adjacent to this is a range of timber constructed stores, including a lockable bike shed, open log stores and a car port.
West Wing enjoys a right of access over the main driveway as coloured yellow on the illustrative site plan forming part of these particulars. There is an obligation to share maintenance and repair with the other proprietors using the drive.
