The property; which stands in garden and woodland of just over half an acre, is approached from the public highway via a currently rather narrow double-gated entrance to an area of hard standing. To the immediate front of the dwelling is an herbaceous bed, a gravelled area and a small lawn. To one side is a somewhat overgrown Cypress type hedge beyond which is an elongated area of lawn fronting onto the lane and enclosed by hedgerows. There is a concrete surfaced path flanked by well-stocked herbaceous borders, which leads around the bungalow to the rear, where the principal garden is situated having lovely far-ranging outlooks over open farmland. The garden is bordered by a hedge to one side and a timber fence to the other and comprises a good- expanse of gently sloping lawn with several thriving fruit trees including Apple and Plum. Wild Garlic is growing in abundance along the hedgerow, there are also Bluebells as well as Azaleas, Camellias, Hydrangeas, Rhododendrons and Lilac trees. Colour is enhanced in the spring by the presence of numerous spring bulbs. Close to the dwelling is a small timber built, felt roofed Garden Shed, 6' x 5' and a small brick under a simulated red slate roof double Fuel Store. At the furthermost end of the garden a path leads into an area of mature, mainly broad-leaf woodland including Oak, Sycamore and Lime trees, etc., which covers approximately half of the immediate grounds and forms a veritable haven for wild-life. At the very extremity of the woodland, its north-eastern boundary abuts the gated entrance to the pasture field, which is also included in the sale of the property.

The land

As mentioned apart from the gardens and woodland, also included in the sale of the property is a pasture field, which is comprised in one enclosure of triangular shape, enclosed by hedgerows, this extending to 1.95 acres (.79 hectare) and having a gated access from the public highway and a long road frontage to a quiet country lane. It lies at about 440 feet above mean sea level and is almost completely level, what little slope there is being in an easterly direction. Whilst the field is currently down to pasture, the depth of soil and topography could admirably lend themselves to other usage possibly even including market gardening.


Mains electricity and water are connected. Drainage is to a septic tank and soak-away situated on the land and shared with the neighbouring property. Night storage heating is installed. Telephone (subject to British Telecom transfer regulations). None of the services nor any of the fixtures and fittings included in these sales particulars has been tested.

Rights of way, easements, way-leaves, etc.
The property is sold subject to and with the benefit of any rights of way, easements, way-leaves, etc. Which, if any exist, are fully described and detailed in the Special Conditions of Sale and Contract available for inspection either at the Auctioneers' Offices or at the offices of the Vendors’ Solicitors, both during normal office hours, during the week prior to the auction.
