The property is approached via electric gates to a long drive leading to the property and parking area, and sits well with its plot; enclosed by hedging which provides privacy and seclusion.

The gardens are delightful and mainly laid to lawn with an array of rhododendron in a variety of colours, as well as topiary, mature specimen trees and a well-maintained knot garden. Two brick paved terraces provide ideal locations for outside entertaining. There is also a brick and glass greenhouse and two useful garden sheds for storage.
