OUTSIDE A recessed timber 5 bar gate opens on to a long 150ft tarmacadam drive which leads you to the front of the cottage providing parking and turning space. It is flanked by one side by a large lawn with the gentlest of slopes. Natural hedge boundaries to either side. There are also a couple of flower beds. Adjoining one side of the cottage is a:
"LEAN-TO" 16' x 8'7" (4.88m x 2.62m). of block and timber clad construction. Perfect for log storage etc. or could be developed as a car port/garage if required.
To the rear of the cottage an expansive paved patio wraps around the property and continues to one side where there is a useful amenity area and an LPG point. The delightful gardens have been landscaped for ease of maintenance with areas of ornamental shingle, flower beds and numerous spots to just sit and enjoy the outlook. There are 2 timber garden sheds, one being some 7' x 7' (2.13m x 2.13m) and a larger second shed 11' x 9' (3.35m x 2.74m). A good quality concrete path runs through this area and leads to a picket gate from where you can access the woodland. This is bordered along one side by a tree topped bank. A path meanders through the woodland where you will find a great selection of native trees including oak, ash, sycamore and hazel. The "Woodland Garden" has been well managed over the years and as to be expected is a haven for bird life.
WORKSHOP/STUDIO 26'6" x 17'5" (8.08m x 5.3m). Nestling in the woodland is this lovely addition to the property of timber clad construction under a pitched concrete fibre roof with plenty of skylights. It has light and power connected with twin doors to one side and a pedestrian door to the other. Internally at either end there are very useful loft storage areas. The covered but open sided entrance to the workshop is really a most pleasant spot to sit and enjoy the vista.
Large areas of the woodland have been kept "open" providing a great habitat, wild flowers and daffodils. A few steps away from the workshop is a TIMBER/GI LOG STORE
SERVICES Mains water and electricity. Drainage to a "Klargester" clean water treatment plant.
