OUTSIDE    A tarmacadum drive provides extensive parking. The gardens are currently mainly laid to lawn with an extensive paved patio area, and a great collection of mature trees and shrubs. Great potential for landscaping, and adjoining farmland with some nice views along the eastern side.

FORMER RAILWAY LINE    Adjoining the northern end of the formal gardens, this extends to just over 2 acres and it is fair to say that the majority has currently been reclaimed by nature providing a great habitat/corridor for wildlife. It is defined along either side by lines of mature beech, whilst the centre is now covered by willow/bramble undergrowth. Interestingly, one cleared area with a TIMBER/SHEET CLAD SHELTER has a history of an archery range for which it is perfectly suited.

OUTSIDE -    A long stone drive (which the railway cottages have a right of access over) sweeps around to the front of the property and provides extensive parking. There are decent sized level gardens currently laid to lawn with a large patio, and substantial pine SUMMERHOUSE which adjoin farmland along their eastern boundary.

OUTBUILDINGS    Adjacent to The Granary is a most unusual former railway station warehouse of concrete/timber/galvanised iron construction under a corrugated sheet roof. Unusually, it has been built on raised concrete piles and sits about 3ft above the ground level. It comprises 2 units with an interlinking hall, and has mains electric and water connected. Its most recent use has been as a specialised training centre, but the whole property is now in need of complete refurbishment or rebuilding on the current footings.

UNIT 1 Overall 51' (15.54m) (15.54) x 18' (5.49m) (5.49). Concrete/timber/corrugated sheet construction.

UNIT 2 Overall 43' (13.1m) (13.1) x 18' (5.49m) (5.49). Of corrugated iron construction under a corrugated sheet roof.

Please note, a new boundary fence will be required between The Granary and the "Office Outbuilding".

SERVICES -    Mains water and electric. Shared private drainage. Lyne Akres: Oil fired central heating. The Granary: LPG central heating. Please note, both the boilers have not been used for some time and probably will need replacing, along with re-siting the LPG tank for The Granary.
