  • Outside

    To the front of the property there is a sandstone laid section with Yorkstone pathway leading to the main front door, along with a flagged driveway which leads alongside the property and then via a superb aged oak arched gateway to the rear garden. The rear garden is without doubt one of the principal features of note relating to the property, being south west facing, much larger than average and very attractively presented, which is a result of years of care and attention by the present owners. The rear garden comprises a large main lawned section which is surrounded by very extensive well stocked flower and shrubbery borders, a monkey puzzle tree, various other mature deciduous and evergreen trees, slate shaled sections, a main flagged, pebbled and set laid seating area with additional circular flower planter section, covered log store, external lighting, decorative trellis work, a pergola covered seating area immediately adjacent to the rear of the house, a modern double bunded oil storage tank, sandstone boundary wall to either side and a gateway leading to a delightful kitchen garden area with greenhouse, summerhouse, storage shed, open fronted machinery store, vegetable garden and mature fruit trees. Of historic note is the horse gin situated in a section of the garden slightly lower than the main lawn, this being an area where livestock would have pulled a circular turntable on a central axle which then powered water pumps or various items of other ancillary machinery.
