GARDENS AND GROUNDS:
The gardens and two paddocks surrounding the residences are extremely well kept and the garden has been well planned to provide colour and privacy. The property is well set back from the road accessed by a cut stone entrance with black wrought iron gates. A beautiful stud railed gravelled driveway welcomes visitors to the property and gives lovely first impressions. To the front and rear of the residence are two excellent grazing paddocks that would be perfect for ponies or horses. The driveway is lined on one side with mature Beech Lime Trees, while mature hedging and trees ensure the grounds are most private. The gravelled parking area is bordered by low stone walls with raised flowerbeds. The is an extensive range of mature plants and trees such as Mountain Ash, Holly, climbing roses and a Virginia Creeper ivy on the front of the house. The driveway extends up to the rear garden and paddock. A large block built shed (measuring 741 Sq. Ft. / 69 Sq. M. approx.) is complete with power and plug sockets. There are a number of other outbuildings that can be used for stables or agricultural storage. The secluded and mature rear garden is laid in lawn with Laurel hedging separating it from a large orchard area with ten old style apple trees. The two paddocks are in mature pasture and have been managed extremely well. A vehicular farm gate in the rear paddock gives access to a rear laneway.
