Flanked by stone pillars, the remote-controlled gates open onto an expansive driveway affording ample parking for several vehicles and leading to, and alongside, the double garage. At the end of the driveway, there is a wood store, and also a gate to the rear garden. A safe and secure haven for children, the garden is fully enclosed to all sides leaving you to relax whilst the kids enjoy hours of fun and imaginative play within the gardens which wrap themselves around the home. Those who love jam or a tasty crumble, will delight at the variety of fruits on offer: cooking and eating apples, cherries, gooseberries, redcurrants, grapes and wild plums to name but a few. The choice of seating areas is equally varied, one of the highlights being a lovely circular patio with adjacent Koi pond. Al-fresco entertaining will doubtless continue well into the evening thanks to the accent solar lighting and illuminated water feature. Further benefits include two sheds (one with power and light), greenhouse (with power), and cabling in situ for a hot-tub which could happily nestle beneath the vines.
