The garden and grounds of this delightful home are a particular feature. A terrace abuts the property accessed from the garden room and also the side gate. This is bordered by established beds containing a variety of shrubs and seasonal flowers. There is a derelict greenhouse / potting shed for renovation and a formal lawn flanked by mature trees. At the back of the garden a further level lawn, believed to have been a tennis court, with gate to the fields beyond. Useful timber garden store.
Adjacent to the side terrace a brick built outbuilding providing useful storage / workshop space but considered suitable for a variety of purposes, perhaps studio or home office.

Clearly a beautiful building in its day but now in need of repair.
Along with the adjoining potting shed this occupies a significant footprint, there may, subject to consent, be scope to replace with a building for an alternative purpose.
None of the services or appliances mentioned in these sale particulars have been tested.
