Front Garden 39’ x 55’ (Irregular shape). The property is approached by a serpentine stone chip pathway meandering through evergreen and deciduous trees and mature shrubs with trellising and archways clad with rambling roses and a small ornamental pond. At the very front is a paved terrace with trellis to three sides and circular stone edged lawn with an adjacent log store. A stone-chip hard standing provides car-parking. At the side of the barn, a wrought iron garden gate leads onto a stone-chip pathway through to the rear garden. Rear Garden 51’ x 38’ (Irregular shape). Adjacent to the house is a wide paved terrace with a honeysuckle-clad trellis and a rose-covered pergola over a pathway to a garden shed and the rear garden gate. Immediately outside the garden doors, there is an original brick-lined well shaft (now partially filled in) with an ornamental grill. This area of garden is set down to lawn with a mixture of evergreen deciduous ornamental trees and shrubs creating a screen, as well as a slate chip bed with alpine planting. Behind a trellis screen, there is an air-source heat pump that provides the central heating and hot water. From the rear garden there is a pedestrian right of way to Parsonage Lane.
