At the rear of the property a beautiful pitched roof conservatory which mirrors the Edwardian design of the bay windows to the front elevation can be enjoyed. The property has been lovingly and thoughtfully updated by the current owners' who has sought help and advice of former occupants of the property to recapture the former layout and style of this comfortable family home.
Outside the property, there are various areas and styles of gardens to be utilised and enjoyed. To either side of the property there are granite gate posts with gates opening to driveway parking. One side has space for multiple vehicles and leads to a detached garage. There is an orchard area which is enclosed by high walling.
