Garden The essence of Sakura is as much about its outdoor space as the house itself. The garden was designed by George Downer Landscapes Ltd, a graduate of the National Botanic Gardens and enhances many different garden aspects. The entrance to Sakura is via a pair of setback large white pillars with dramatic wrought iron gates. There's a pedestrian gated entrance to the side. The front forecourt is laid with a soft coloured gravel which compliments the main house and is framed by hedges, shrubs and mature trees with ample off-street parking. A second vehicle gate leads to the side courtyard. This courtyard is accessed via tall double doors from both the living room and kitchen and can be used for additional car parking. The west facing rear garden is 38 m / 125 ft in length and is both colourful and simple in landscaping. It's mainly laid in lawn and bordered by flower beds and shrubbery. A bespoke swirling wrought iron walkway from the kitchen, provides instant access to the garden and sun-drenched patio. Wrought iron steps lead to the second patio and sliding doors give access to the basement.
