The house is set back from the tree-lined village lane behind a high box hedge that cloaks the generous lawned area at the front. At the rear, an extensive stone flagged terrace wraps around the new extension at the rear of the house, facing south towards an attractive, manicured garden, mostly laid to lawn. The paved terraces provide ample sun-filled corners for al fresco dining. The garden at the rear is well screened from its neighbours with mature shrubs and trees, planted for colour and year-round privacy.
