Outside

The house is set well back from the road, with a driveway leading to the extensive gardens to the front, side and rear. The rear garden is south-facing and has lovely views over the paddocks and countryside beyond. There is a public footpath which crosses the field from Forsters Lane. There is water to the field, also from Forsters Lane. Currently the western boundary of the paddock/field is not fenced; the vendor will require a stock-proof fence post sale which will likely consist of post and three strand barbed wire, with sheep netting.

In all about 4 acres.
