The grounds extend to approximately 3.6 acres and the property is accessed via a pair of electric gates, in turn leading to an extensive driveway and a pair of triple bay garages with electric up and over doors, power and lighting connected and one with a full size vehicle inspection pit. Above one of the garages is a games room which offers a multitude of uses, including scope for a substantial annexe (subject to needs and relevant approval).
The grounds, designed by Notcutts, have been meticulously maintained over a number of years and are mainly laid to lawn with a number of mature trees, shrubs and bushes and a separate access point via a five bar gate. To the rear of the property is a paved terrace, ideal for al fresco entertaining, together with a heated swimming pool with automated cover and high quality summerhouse/pool house with WC/changing room. There are stunning gardens to the rear, enjoying a significant number of mature trees and a greenhouse.

EQUESTRIAN POTENTIAL The grounds offer huge potential for an equestrian set-up. Currently there is a separate five bar gate providing access (including vehicular) to the rear garden which could provide a stunning paddock. In addition is a high quality building with electricity connected, currently incorporating x2 large stables and an oversize hay barn. The building has been designed to be easily enlarged (subject to relevant approval).
