Grounds & Gardens
Outside the property is enclosed by a stone wall and approached by a gate which provides access to the tarmac drive where there is ample parking. There is a gravelled area to the side which would make a great space to entertain. Furthermore, there is a small garden to the side which is mainly laid to lawn.
In addition to the front of the property there is an outhouse with carport which has the potential to be converted into a separate space or could potentially be used to increase the footage of the current house subject to the relevant planning permission.
