There is also a Utility Room on this level which has plumbing and space for white goods, a work surface with sink/drainer unit and the wall mounted combination boiler.

A herringbone brick driveway leads to the single garage which has the benefit of power and light. There are five additional outbuildings and sheds providing extra storage. The rear garden offers a delightful space in a surprisingly large and quiet position backing onto a wooded copse. A generous balcony patio is enclosed by wooden railings and has steps leading down to a large central lawn area with raised beds and borders containing mature shrubs and plants. Two corners of the garden benefit from seating areas with a herringbone inset block patio in a private position in which to enjoy the sun throughout the day. The second corner also provides a sunken Koi pond and decked surround.
