Gardens and Paddock The garden grounds extend to the side and rear of the property and are extensive. The size of the plot is approximately 1.5 acres and consists of an area of orchard to the side consisting of apple and cherry trees and a garden to the rear with shrubs, areas of lawn, fruit and vegetable beds, in addition to which is an aluminium framed greenhouse and timber built garden shed. Beyond the gardens and orchard is a stock proof paddock enclosed by mature hedge and laid to lawn with several attractive young and old trees including two fig trees and four walnut trees. At the foot of the paddock is a secure yard enclosed by walling and gates, off which are two large stables, each measuring 4m x 4m. These buildings lend themselves to further possible conversion for a variety of other uses or annexed accommodation (again subject to planning). A further range of other buildings include a brick built general purpose store, a timber built former chicken coup, shed and a former range of kennels (7.4m x 4.3m) comprising six kennels with a turning out area easily capable of being recommissioned as kennels or for other general purpose storage use etc. The paddock also has a small wildlife pond.
Fixtures and Fittings All fitted carpets are included.
