There are three areas of garden at the property, all of which are enclosed to all sides by established boundaries. The well-tended main garden is located at the front of the property and is generous in size, mainly laid to lawn with a fine outlook beyond. Likely to appeal to green-fingered purchasers and indeed those with both pets and children, the garden is safe and secure, with a patio seating area. Sunshine can be enjoyed throughout the day at this property, moving around to the west-facing garden to the side.

This second area of garden is entered via a low level wooden gate and is also laid to lawn, enjoying good amounts of privacy. On the opposite side of the property, an additional area of garden can be found, which has a mature hedge border and adjoins the kitchen/breakfast room. Facing east, this part of the property is particularly appreciated on a sunny morning.
