Thwaitefield is approached discreetly through hardwood, electronically operated gates. A gravel drive sweeps past the detached garage block towards the northern elevation where there is a large turning area and ample parking. The generous garden wraps around the house, well screened on all sides from the village road. Predominantly laid to lawn with mature boundary trees of oak, ash and beech, it makes a perfect outside space for a family. A paved terrace lies on the southern elevation, approached through French doors, creating an ideal spot for al fresco dining in the afternoon and early evening.
