You approach the property on sweeping driveway providing parking for multiple vehicles and leading to the detached garage. The formal gardens surround the house on all sides and are mainly laid to lawn with several well stocked attractive flower beds with a huge array of plants, shrubs, and trees. Immediately to the rear of the property and running its full width is a large, paved patio area, partly covered providing a special space for outside entertaining and enjoying the sunshine, gardens and panoramic views.
