GARDENS AND GOUNDS:
The property is well set back from the road and is discreetly hidden away behind a cut stone high wall with vehicular access through wooden electric gates. The front garden is walled on the right hand side with a cut stone high wall to match the front wall at the road. There is a mature and high neat hedge on the left hand side which gives good privacy from the neighbouring property. There is a good selection of mature trees inside the front wall bordered by a raised bed with shrubs and colourful planting. There is secure off-street parking for up to six cars. Dual gated side access leads through to the rear of the property. The large and private rear garden (measuring 84ft L x 64ft W approx.) is a big selling point of this fine home. A neat lawn is bordered by a high block wall on the right hand side and the boundary wall at the end of the garden. The mature hedge on the left hand side is a continuation of the hedge in the front garden. A paved patio directly at the back of the house is perfect for al-fresco dining and entertaining. There is a good selection of mature trees, shrubs, flowering plants and wall creepers. A large block built shed (measuring 40 Sq. M. / 430 Sq. Ft. approx. over two levels) could be converted to further living accommodation subject to necessary planning permission for a change of use.
