A further area of kitchen garden lies to one side, whilst further garden areas rise around to the rear of the house. A particular vantage point to enjoy the garden is provided by the terrace accessed from both the garden and double drawing room. The rear gardens again provide a picturesque terrace with sunken garden on the sight of the original mill pond. The apple orchard contains an avenue of Lime trees creating a lovely focal point, whilst the original quarry ascends behind the property and includes expanses of lawns with superb Oak trees. The grounds extend in total to approximately 7 acres, including grazing paddocks.

We understand that around half the roof has had under foam spayed on it by the previous owners – this may affect a mortgage application.

The owners have an informal grass keep arrangement with a neighbour to graze around 4 acres of the land.
