The property is approached via a private gravelled drive through high hedges and double timber gates, leading to a parking and turning area at the back of the house.  The gardens extending to approx 1/2 an acre are private and lie to the front and side of the house and are bordered by high trees and some mature fruit trees.

 

Outbuildings

To one side is the stable block providing three generous loose boxes with high ceilings, fronted by a railed concrete turnout yard.

 

Land

The land comprises two large level paddocks extending to 3.2 acres.  These are fenced with a mixture of rails hedging and electric wired fencing.  There is a disconnected water supply to the first paddock and a former dew pond, creating an area ideal for wildlife.   Whilst the other paddock has two corrugated iron barns with concrete flooring for shelter or storage and a separate access on to the track leading to miles of bye ways and out riding.
