The double garage with an electric door is also to the front of the property. The total grounds extend to almost 10 acres- the garden is principally to the rear of the house where there is a full width patio that can be accessed from various points in the house, ideal for outdoor entertaining and al fresco dining.Beyond the patio, an extensive lawn runs in an easterly direction away from the house to a formal garden landscaped with seasonal planting, hedging, and a tree-lined avenue that leads to a lightly planted 'orchard' area.
The land and paddocks lie to the south and east of the house and are currently sub-divided into five separate paddocks of varying sizes with internal gates for management and rotation. The paddocks are all securely fenced and follow the gentle undulation and gradient of the hillside with a secondary vehicular access point into the southernmost paddock from Sandleheath Road.
