Grounds and gardens
The property is approached through electronically controlled gates providing off road access to the large driveway. The barn and brick stables can both be located to the front aspect with Laurel hedging providing the boundary.

Opposite the American barn is a three bay traditional pole barn, a steel storage container, wc, and shower. Back in the garden area is an insulated hobby room, garden shed, green house, and insulated dog kennels.
