The house is located on a quiet country lane with steps from the gravelled parking area up to the front door and enclosed garden. The garden is mainly laid to lawn with numerous flower beds, shrubs and mature trees and a terrace accessed from the kitchen area. The garden is bordered on two sides by open fields and we have measured it to be approximately 0.64 acres.
