An electric gated entrance leads to the beautifully landscaped and colourful well stocked gardens with a sweeping gravel driveway providing parking adjacent to the property in conjunction to the substantial four car garage. The original part of the house dates to the 1800's and in 2015, the current owners achieved planning to substantially increase the footprint of the house creating the a light filled home which seamlessly combines the attractive stone architecture of the front elevation with a cool contemporary wing to the rear.

As a dog owner and keen walker, I love the thought of being able to step directly from my gardens to an expanse of open countryside beyond!David Wild
