Manicured hedging fronts the lane and provides a degree of privacy, with a pedestrian route through to reach the entrance doorway. The layout of the rear garden takes full advantage of the slight slope to the plot and adds interest with retaining walls to flower beds and to the edges of the paved terrace adjoining the house. With areas laid to lawn interspersed with specimen trees, there is also a series of timber steps which lead up to a vegetable garden and a summerhouse. The garden to the side is marked by trimmed evergreen along a paved pathway passing a brick-edged well, which leads to the gravelled driveway where there is also a timber garage. A circular paved terrace to one side provides a further seating area, which takes advantage of the southerly aspect. A woodland haven lies beyond the rear boundary, with wire mesh fencing allowing a view into this area.
