The magnificent garden surrounds the house and is bordered by well- established and mature tree lines of Lime, Chestnut and Oak and a bluebell wood.

A gravelled driveway leads up to the house, offering ample parking as well as the attached, brick-built double garages. A separate stone and brick-built oil tank room sits next to the garages. A York stone paved terrace, adjacent to the conservatory, offers an excellent position from which to dine al fresco.
