A stunning approach via a sweeping driveway set in a Cotswold stone wall. There are an array of mature trees such as ornamental cherry trees, shrubs and flowers (including a "white flower" border) amongst the greenery in the front gardens.

The driveway leads to the double garage with up and over doors. The garage has been part converted but its versatility presents a canvas of possibilities with potential to be converted into additional living space, guest suite, home office or hobby room. The current office space also houses a cloakroom.

The rear enclosed garden has been thoughtfully designed and is home to a well-loved woodland area with meandering paths. The woodland area serves as a haven for hedgehogs and birds, a sanctuary for local wildlife. More mature trees, shrubs and hedges keep the garden enclosed, a terrace offers plenty of outdoor seating along with a well built hut with outdoor dining table.
