The house is set in beautifully designed landscaped gardens to the rear with large front garden and driveway with off-street parking for several cars. Covered,decked porch with external lighting & log storage.
The house has four double bedrooms, the master having its own private balcony overlooking the garden,to relax on with a cup of coffee.

The garden is completely private & secluded & arranged as series of outdoor "rooms", well stocked with a wide range of mature shrubs, trees and flowering plants. Sunken, decked seating area outside rear reception room, with fire pit/barbecue banked by lavender plants. Small "wildlife" pond & fountain.
