      Mulberry house is approached through iron gates with a gravel drive and parking areas to the front and rear of the house. There are some fine specimen trees including mulberry, yew, lime and wide flower borders. There is a more formal lawned garden with swimming pool and range of single-storey garden stores, a potting shed and to the back of the house a kennel and further covered store area.

    I love this period of architecture - good ceiling heights, elegant rooms and a solidity of construction. The garden is also very lovely and very unexpected for such a central town location.
