Handmade timber gates open to a gravel drive that provides parking and access to the triple garage, with power and light. A mature ash stands sentinel. Gravel pathways sweep around to the main entrance past the circular lawn and abundantly planted shrubs providing a formal structure and year-round colour. An espalier high hedge lines the reclaimed brick wall providing screening and shelter. To the front is a garden predominantly laid to lawn with an herbaceous border and climbers abutting the house. Outside, granary steps rise to the principal bedroom and a Portuguese laurel hedge lines the northern boundary of the garden. Directly across the village lane lie five acres of pasture land all stock fenced and overlooked by the house.
