The property is approached via secure gates and a long sweeping driveway. At the head of the driveway there is turning circle with the centre piece being an ornamental fountain. Upon entering the property via the vestibule entrance with a 'Minton' tiled floor, it becomes apparent that attention to detail was high on the agenda under construction and re-development.
