OUTSIDE To the front of the property there are a pair of wrought iron gates and further wrought iron gate to side which in turn lead to an extensive brick paviour courtyard style parking area and driveway, which in turn leads to a courtyard style parking area and driveway with space to park several vehicles in addition to the integrated double garage with automatic up and over door. There is a great variety of mature shrubs, bushes, trees and borders with many roses curving around the house. The bin area is recessed well out of sight with locked gated access into a side terrace ideal for climbers and herbs and in turn round to the main garden with mature trees including wonderful flowering cherry and magnolia and a ginkgo which provides magnificent colour in the autumn.

The rear of the property is wonderfully private, secluded and has sun from early morning to late afternoon. It is divided into generous areas. The gardens are landscaped and around the central lawn in the front room there are large and well stocked borders on three sides with a generous wooden deck area closest to the house which comfortably accommodates seating and an outdoor table for 10 in front of the main sitting room. Outside the kitchen, again through bi-folding doors, there is another table and chairs perfect for breakfast and lunch. All ground floor rooms open to the gardens giving a real indoor/outdoor feel.

South facing there is a particularly large border laid to trees, shrubs, herbaceous and perennial plants which offers colour all year round. Near to the house is an attractive rockery with a selection of wildflowers, herbs, buxus and flowers drawing the eye through to the gardens beyond. Behind this border and running along a large brick wall there is a very private terrace with more seating, ideal to read in peace. In front of a large beech hedge there are the "hot" beds with vibrant flowers, shrubs and trees. Along the north facing wall there is a cool bed with a blue and white theme.

The next area is entered through the beech hedge and this takes you to an area of wild meadow, pear, apple and plum trees, another border ideally planted along the brick wall allowing for rambling climbing roses and passion vines. The studio/home office/current gym sits peacefully there, hidden from the house. This has sealed double glazed windows, heating, natural wood style flooring and a pair of double glazed full height doors with a timber deck. This catches the last of the sun at the very end of the day and is a wonderful spot for the sundowners. Along the back perimeter backing onto the Perse playing field there are very old walnut and others trees. There is a good sized garden shed ideal for the lawn mower, garden implements and other tools.
