Outside The grounds along with the setting is one of the property's most attractive features. A large gravel drive provides ample off-road parking and in turn leads to an area that would be ideal for the erection of a double/triple cart lodge (subject to any necessary planning consents).

A secondary drive provides further vehicular access and is well-placed for a substantial thatched barn that makes for an ideal party barn, studio, gym, the creation of ancillary accommodation etc.

The remainder of the grounds are landscaped and include a heating swimming pool, large open expanses of lawn, established trees, vegetable garden and there is a charming formal garden designed with entertaining/dining alfresco in mind. The rear boundary has been kept at a sensible height to take advantage of the wonderful countryside views.

In all approaching 3 acres.
