The Gardens The gardens are of a particularly good size extending around to the rear of the adjacent property and are laid to sweeping lawns, attractive borders planted with a variety of shrubs, plants, trees and rockeries. The gardens are predominantly laid to lawn enclosed on all sides by timber panelled fencing and mature hedging and feature an attractive variety of mature trees and including several mature fruit trees and fir trees.

Substantial Leisure Complex53'10" x 24'9" (16.4m x 7.54m). This substantial indoor leisure complex features a large swimming pool measuring 10.3m (33.10") x 5.5m (18'1") and with a depth at the shallow end of 1.00m (3'3") and at the deep end of 2.25m (8'2"). The pool has been decommissioned and not been used for a number of years and thus we are unable to confirm whether the heating system for the pool is still operational or indeed the wave machine that was installed when the pool was constructed. Surrounding the pool are extensive paved areas with a number of sets of sealed unit double glazed sliding patio doors opening onto a large sun terrace which extends to the side and rear of the pool complex from which to enjoy the outstanding views over the gardens and beyond. In addition is a changing area and WC.
Services Mains water, electricity, gas and drainage are connected to the property. Gas fired central heating is provided by a replacement GlowWorm boiler and the property benefits from a majority of sealed unit double glazing.
