The mature landscaped garden is mainly laid to lawns with a high hedge boundary to the west giving privacy. There is a patio area in the middle of the front lawn sheltered by mature shrubs, making a perfect location for a glass of something chilled on warm summer evenings. A wooded area to the east of the drive is home to an almost secret small paved area which would be an ideal shady spot from which to enjoy hotter days. A border of mature shrubs and trees lead from this up towards the parking area. To the rear, a large raised patio is ideal for summer barbecues. A small paved courtyard is formed adjacent to the immediate rear of the house and can be directly accessed via the patio doors in the hallway. Beyond the rear fence is an area of woodland.
