The Grounds and Gardens
A gardener's delight! The grounds provide everything that a keen or new gardener will require. The large plot, circa 0.4 acres, is beautifully landscaped and meticulously maintained, being mainly laid to lawn with informal and well stocked, mature borders. The boundaries are enclosed by a mixture of walls and fencing all softened or hidden by planting. The garden boasts a rare magnolia tree and a collection of maples and acers. A lovely timber summer house and a patio area provide the perfect locations for enjoying the beautiful garden. To the side section of the garden, by the drive, is a kitchen garden featuring a variety of currants, fruit trees, a fruit cage, herbs and plenty of manageable beds for growing your own produce. A well, with submersible pump, within this area provides for all your watering needs. A Hartley greenhouse within the rear garden provides additional growing capacity.
By the kitchen garden are two storage buildings, currently used as logs stores. Beyond these is a well-constructed timber shed, ideal for the storage of garden tools, and the oil tank. A timber gate gives access to the composting facilities and an orchard lined path to a further grass area fronting The Leaze, which can be used for additional parking.
