This exceptional modern house has had only two owners since new, and has been in its present ownership since 1981.

The garden is enclosed by six foot high fencing together with shrubs and trees. and is very much established. It is set up for entertaining. A summerhouse together with arboured barbeque area provides a backdrop to the evening terrace looking out over the main sweep of lawn, which is in turn shaped by colourful borders. Adjacent is a raised sundeck, shaded by an Acer tree, enhanced by a lamp standard and a water feature. There is even a screened log store for the barbeque. Beyond again is a secret garden providing a high degree of privacy shaded by a variegated Acer and a tool shed.
In summary the garden is immaculately maintained, cleverly laid out and constructed in the form of compartments serving different purposes, and best at different times of the day; it is a delight.
