    both the dining room and the main bedroom into the conservatory. The kitchen, also accessed from the dining
    room and entrance hall, is equipped with a range of wall & base units and has a built-in fridge freezer, dishwasher, electric oven and gas hob.

    The conservatory has underfloor heating giving it year round use as a meaningful reception space with patio doors leading to
    the terrace.

    The annex consists of a vaulted bedroom with en suite, and utility/kitchenette. From the bedroom there are patio doors opening out on to a partially enclosed & secluded patio area. There are two entrances/exits from either the garden or the car port.

    The property is accessed through electric gates which open onto a gravel driveway, edged with bedding areas along with a stone path. There is a double carport with store cupboard along with access into the annex. There is a side gate leading to the rear garden.

    The rear garden has been exceptionally well-maintained and is loosely set into four sections.

    Firstly, there is a landscaped paved patio area with raised pond and fountain, flower beds & fig tree as well as an area of gravel. Proceeding along through an archway, there is an area of lawn with gravel footpath and bedding areas.

    There is a further archway, passing through a hedge border, which reaches the ‘wild garden'. Beyond this passing Espalier apple trees, is the final area which is currently being used as a
    vegetable garden with raised beds. There is also a generous
    sized timber garden shed.

Quite possibly one of the best kept gardens I have seen in a long time!
