Outside, the property sits in an elevated position set well back from the road offering a detached double garage with electric doors and further off road parking.

A well-kept lawn lies to the front with an attractive border of various shrubs and plants. To the rear, a fully enclosed landscaped garden offers a good selection of plants, flowers and trees with decking and sun terrace.
