OUTSIDE

FRONT

The property is set back from the road behind brick retaining walls with tall clipped laurel hedging creating a private aspect with a wooden white picket style gate with steps and pathway extending to the front door. The remainder of the front garden is laid to lawn with the garden area extending to the side of the property providing ample space to extend the existing cottage if so required or an opportunity to create additional parking by utilising the dropped kerb which has already been installed.

REAR GARDEN

Enjoying a private aspect whilst being triangular in shape, laid predominantly to lawn with a brick paved terrace laid in an attractive herringbone pattern, mature well stocked shrub borders, enclosed by wooden panelled fencing with a wooden Wendyhouse to the rear.

PARKING

At the end of Weston Road cul-de-sac, there are two parking spaces which were formed when Highways blocked off the cul-de-sac and the current owner has parked there for several years but they are not allocated to the property. The owner has also advised us that at the front of the property there is already a dropped curb in place giving the immediate potential to create off-road parking if so preferred.
