There is a lawned front garden with mature rose bushes, silver birch tree and a gravelled path leading to the front door. The property has a detached garage building incorporating separate office. The garage area has double timber doors to the front providing vehicular access, power and lighting. The office has a stable door to the side opening to the garden. The rear garden comprises paved seating area from the house with steps up to lawn and further seating areas to the sides.

Plans have been produced to provide a rear extension, with some reconfiguration of the existing accommodation. Two variations have been designed, one single storey to enhance the kitchen/dining/living space creating a contemporary open-plan living space running along the back of the house and opening up the existing lounge and a two storey version to include provision of a new master bedroom suite on the first floor. Plans are available for inspection on request. No planning application has been made, it is understood the single storey option may be permissible under permitted development, the two storey version would require planning consent. Interested parties are expressly advised to make their own enquiries and satisfy themselves as to the various planning and building control requirements.
