Whether you like to relax listening to the water in the pond or sitting under the Pergola outside the patio doors to the living room, you have some much choice. In-fact, your only dilemma would be whether it's a cold beer in the party garden room with a barbecue and friends, or a more relaxed moment with a glass of chilled white wine sitting under the shelter of the pergola watching the birds busying themselves. Spoilt for choice. There is plenty of gravelled space for several cars.
To the rear of the property you'll find a large patio area which stretches the full length of the property with a potting shed and access to the oil tank and access to the garage. There are water points to both front and rear.
