Set over approximately 10 acres (STMS), with over 2 acres of formal gardens and standing on the edge of a conservation area - this home provides a little piece of outdoor heaven whatever your interest.

Leading directly from the rear of property further from the swimming pool is a large wooden decked area with a built-in barbeque and superb views of fields. Close by is a large, covered wood store with small stage for parties and functions.
Beyond this is a walled courtyard with high brick walls, and door to the implement shed with a gate leading to one of the three paddocks. The formal gardens belonging to the property are well cared for and tended to by the current owners with well stocked flower beds, all mainly laid to lawn with fine rose borders and an area of kitchen garden, fruit trees can also be found within this section along with a greenhouse. Further to this is also a full-size recently re-surfaced tennis court for those keen on sports and keeping fit.
Close to the tennis court is a further seating area with a Moroccan theme. Beyond the tennis court it an archway leading to the secret garden with spectacular views over fields.
