Garden and Exterior
The stable door from the kitchen leads to a pretty courtyard, beyond which is a tiled roof outbuilding with an archway leading through to a south westerly facing garden measuring approximately 200 feet. Lovingly created by the current owner, the beautiful, secluded and private main lawned area is lined with flowerbeds, mature trees and hedges. This in turn leads to a Breeze House perfect for entertaining family and friends or just enjoying the tranquillity that the garden offers. There is a further area of garden through the rose arch with mature trees and woodland planting.
