GARDEN & GROUNDS

A gated entrance leads up a gravelled driveway to a central turning circle featuring a small ornamental pond. The front garden area offers colourful flower borders and the boundary edge planted with mature evergreen trees and shrubs, providing a degree of privacy from the lane and neighbouring properties. This extends around the side of the house where pretty walkways edged with a comprehensive range of interesting colourful plants and climbers give way to the main formal gardens to the rear.
This opens out to the main lawn edged with extensive borders offering an array of colour and interest throughout the year. An impressive rockery spills down to the main sun terrace enjoying a southerly aspect.
Continuing through the clipped arched hedge to an absolutely stunning herbaceous walk. This leads along to the summerhouse at the end. A pathway to one side takes you to the rose garden. This includes a wide variety of shrub and climbing roses providing a mass of summer colour and scent.
Beyond a clipped hedge gives way to surprisingly extensive grounds. Formerly an orchard this is now grassed and gives the opportunity for alternative uses. It could also offer potential for further development (subject to the necessary consents).
