To the front of the property there is a well maintained level garden with a southerly aspect.

Overhead is a slate pitched canopy providing shelter from the elements. A level area into the bank houses the oil tanks which fuels the central heating and aga.
To the rear is a further driveway and this area will need to be approached as potential. Some of the drive has been laid to tarmac with the rest of this area to be completed. However this offers an excellent opportunity to be finished to suit the lifestyle and requirements of a purchaser. There are also areas where landscaping will need to be completed, again this can be completed to suit the taste and plans of a purchaser. The level area (and completed drive) leads to an approx 300sq metre detached barn. A separate electric supply feeds to the barn and this space could be an exciting opportunity for a purchaser who wants an impressive workshop or works from home in an engineering capacity or a car enthusiast. Two metal electric roller shutter doors lead into comprehensive workshop space and subject to any further consents could be used as ancillary/holiday accommodation. This building cannot be split from the title of the main house or sold of as a separate dwelling.
