The property is approached via a private driveway which sweeps down between the paddock and gardens leading to a large gravelled parking and turning area, suitable for eight to ten vehicles and giving access to a substantial timber garage/workshop. To one side of the property there is a lower area of garden and access to an attractive enclosed courtyard area. One neighbour has a pedestrian access over the far corner of this courtyard. To the other side of the property is a fully private and secluded further sunken courtyard garden, with large paved area suitable for table and chairs, raised beds and steps leading back to the front driveway. The main body of garden is directly in front of the house with substantial areas of lawn, a small coppice area at the far end and a variety of trees and shrubs. There is a wildlife pond. To the opposite side of the driveway is a small triangular holding paddock, an area which has formerly been utilised for chickens. There is a further gated access leading into the field enclosure which is ideal for equestrian use and offering good pasture. There is a bridleway on the opposite side of the access lane from the top of the drive offering the opportunity for riding out, along with a wide number of quiet country lanes for those who enjoy hacking out and enjoying the picturesque rolling countryside that surrounds the property.


Mains electricity, gas and water. Drainage is via a private drainage system shared with two other neighbouring properties and therefore there are reduced costs with each property having a third share in maintenance.


The property is attached at the rear to the original Church Farmhouse, which is now a family home and because of the "T" shaped arrangement neither property impacts on the other.
