The garden immediately behind the property is laid mostly to lawn, with mature planting and a heated swimming pool, leading onto a small coppice of fruit trees, soft fruit bushes and a wooded area beyond There is also a paddock and stables, ideal for a small horse or pony, plus brick outbuildings which can accommodate either vehicles, be utilised as workshops or converted, subject to the necessary consent.

EXTERIOR The five acres to the rear of the main house comprise a large expanse of lawn area with a raised patio area and inset heated swimming pool. Beyond is a small coppice of various fruit trees, soft fruit bushes and further onto to the wooded area, where the sellers in 1992 planted 1,100 trees and shrubs. A clearing creates the ideal area for a game of cricket and the trees a perfect place for children to explore and build camps. Running parallel to the woods is a paddock and stable block, with its own five bar gated entrance and yard, there is the space for a potential manage or further stable to be erected. To the left of the property is a small brick building with services connected but not in use, this potentially could result in planning permission being passed for a separate dwelling, but this would be STP.
