The mature garden ground has been tastefully landscaped over the years by the current owners to include a large area of landscaped lawn, and there are a number of water features including several ponds and a small stream which flows through the top half of the garden.
The garden area is completely enclosed to the north and east by an adjacent area of mature woodland which provides a haven for wildlife with a number of open fields which bound the garden area to the south and west. There are a number of fine specimen trees throughout the garden with various shrubs and flower beds providing a delightful abundance of colour.
There is a large patio area to the rear of the property and purpose-built well to the front of the house. The driveway leads south from the public road to a large area of gravel to the front of the property which is enclosed by beech hedging and which provides ample parking for a number of vehicles.
There is a small amount of Japanese knotweed located adjacent to the small stream about 65m to the south of the house within the garden area. The sellers are in the process of having the Japanese knotweed treated by accredited specialist. Further details are available from the selling agents.
