A large stone south facing summer house is ideal for entertaining and to the rear of the garden is a large potting shed and vegetable garden with fruit beds. The property is approached from the front through stone pillars onto a gravel driveway with plenty of parking, a detached stone garage with loft storage could be utilised as an office subject to necessary planning consents.
