Gardens And Grounds
The grounds are stunning and befit a home of this stately manner. There is a sweeping in and out driveway which carries across the front and side elevations ensuring there is an abundance of parking. A wooded thicket to the front offers privacy from the road beyond.
The main garden is mostly laid to lawn and is bordered by mature shrubs, bushes and trees and is a brilliant outside space to enjoy the tranquil surroundings but also the sublime elevation of this home with its grand bays.
To the very rear of the property there is a paved courtyard which can be accessed by the Garden/Dining Room and the Breakfast Kitchen and offers a more formal space for relaxation or entertaining. From here we can access the Stable Block and Outhouses which offer great scope for conversion, and beyond there is a pleasant open aspect across arable land.
