The property stands within a commanding plot with an integral double garage and matching car port, a further recently constructed detached garage with storage areas and log store, whilst the rear gardens are well planned and include two large paved sun terraces with dynamic views across open fields, and a block paved continuous drive that leads to a stone bridge that crosses a meandering stream on to a fenced area of lawn.
Behind the property is a paddock with a solid built stable block, comprising a double loose box and two single loose boxes, all recently re-covered with a new roof, Whilst this paddock and stable block is not part of the property, it would be available to rent.
