A particular feature of the property, the plot extends to approximately 0.869 of an acre, and the house sits well back on the plot, giving a good degree of privacy all round.
Well maintained and laid mainly to lawn, the rear garden has several mature trees and evergreen shrubs. There is a patio that wraps around the house to two sides and is inset with flower beds planted with variegated laurel and honeysuckle. to the boundaries there is mature privet and beech hedging ensuring a good degree of seclusion. We are informed by the present owners that a large outbuilding once stood to one side of the garden and still appears on the title deeds, so there may well be scope to build an outbuilding/ office on the same footprint (subject to normal consents).
The paddock runs along the rear of the garden and is divided from it by ranch style fencing, allowing open views of it from the house. It could quite easily be incorporated as part of the garden, if a paddock is not required. There is a lovely mature apple tree and five bar gates for access, one of which leads to the stable yard.
There are 3 stables, each with internal measurements of 11'6 x 11'6, a foaling box with an internal measurement of 14'6 x 14'6, and a separate small stable with an internal measurements of 9' x 7' suitable for a Shetland pony and with its own little pen and hard-standing.
AGENT'S NOTE REGARDING FURTHER GRAZING LAND: Adjacent to the side boundary, close to the stable bock, there is a field belonging to a neighbouring property, but with potential to rent for grazing.
