Outside    The property is accessed via 2 wrought iron gates which are positioned between attractive original stone walls.

Directly in front of the property is a parking space that is an on-street space and has been used by the current owner for many years.

The house has great kerb appeal being stone and brick built by design and with attractive hedging in front. A tarmac path leads to the Entrance Porch and around to the rear of the property.

To the side of the house is a Victorian style Greenhouse and behind the house is a private paved courtyard surrounded by spacious and useful stone and block-built Outhouses.

Steps lead up to an extensive and sloping garden behind the house which is mainly lawned and features a variety of trees and shrubs. The views from this area of the garden are spectacular and would suit the building of a Summerhouse.

Useful Information    In addition to the on-street parking, the owner is currently in negotiations to try and secure 2 off-road parking spaces. Although these can't be guaranteed at this point, we will be able to update further as the sale progresses.

Additional Outside    A short distance from the front of the property is an area of land that also belongs and comes with the purchase of Woodside. This ground is quite expansive and was formerly a quarry. Located at the side of the quarry is a rather dilapidated Garage that would suit updating. It is considered that this area would make a great additional parking area and could be used for cars, general vehicles and boats or campervans, etc. The owner has spent a lot of time here and enjoys it as a little quiet sanctuary away from the world and this may suit the building of a temporary Summerhouse type structure.

Important Information    Please be aware that the septic tank system at this property is currently being updated to comply with current regulations. This work is expected to be completed in May 2021.
