The house sits centrally on the plot and there are lawns to all sides with good screening for excellent privacy, particularly to the rear, where the delightful stone patio wraps around the side of the house outside the kitchen breakfast room and the drawing room. There are deep borders around the garden stocked with a variety of flowering plants and evergreens. Outbuildings include a double width garage block to the front with driveway providing further off-road parking, and a number of other good sized timber buildings (including boiler/pump room for the pool which is screened from the garden) and a twin stable block. The paddock area would be fine for a small horse or pony. The pool area is set down in a sheltered spot with brick-built gazebo to one corner and Indian sandstone patio surround. The pool is heated and approx 8’ deep by the diving board rising up to 3’6 by the access steps. A further area of adjoining woodland (about 0.40 acres) may be available by separate negotiation located immediately to the left of the plot which has separate gated access further up the lane and would provide access through from here to the stable and paddock area if required.
