A five-bar gate gives access to the gravel drive which sweeps in front of the house and provides parking for up to four cars. The house is set well back from the road behind a mature hedge and the garden with a winding gravel path has been abundantly planted with white flowers. A side access leads to the rear garden which faces south and is a private space and sheltered sun trap, bounded by mellow brick walls. Perennials provide a colourful summer and autumn display, interspersed with gravel and paved areas. An elevated pond sits against the workshop wall with a water feature and living wall. The three outbuildings are contemporaneous with the house, have power and light, and provide substantial, very useful storage and workshop space.
