Gardens & Grounds
Fernbank House is bound by expansive garden grounds which create a feeling of privacy despite Fernbank’s town centre location. To the front are herbaceous borders and a former chicken run. A path to the west leads to a colourful lavender garden and to the north is a substantial lawned area which may suit future development in order to create an additional property or annex. The garden grounds to the east host a timber built summerhouse which benefits from double glazing and electricity. There are numerous garden stores as well as a garage and greenhouse within the grounds as well as ample parking.
At present our clients are in the process of applying for outline planning permission in the garden grounds to the north.
