    The property is approached via a gravel in and out driveway which provides an attractive approach and parking for numerous vehicles as well as access to the garage. The formal gardens lie to the rear of The Birches and have been delightfully landscaped by the current owners resulting in a fabulous backdrop. A terrace runs across the back of the property, providing excellent space for outdoor entertaining, and a large expanse of lawn runs through the borders which provides a great degree of interest throughout the year. Further borders which have been attractively planted, combined with a number of well-established trees, creates an appealing picture and a fantastic living environment. There is also a vegetable garden and a greenhouse. The garden is westerly aspect and so is ideally positioned to make the most of any sunshine throughout the afternoon and evenings.
