This could be used as a games room or office or combined with the garage below and subject to necessary consents could be converted to ancillary accommodation.
There are lawned gardens flanking the gravelled driveway and continuing behind the house up to the rear boundary of the property. There is a paved terrace to the side and rear with brick retaining wall and steps down to the gardens. The gravelled drive leads to a gated access which is adjacent to the garage and which leads to one of the paddocks.

There is a bridleway leading off the driveway just beyond the pole barn with a further gated point on the driveway providing access to the house and additional outbuildings.
