This lovely Edwardian property is approached from Sway Road via a long gravel drive with electric five bar gates. The drive arrives at the house where there is a central island planted with trees giving a circular driveway. The land lies to the south and east of the property with separate access off Sway Road to a stable block, with sweeping land leading around to the rear of the property. There is a large gravel area to the rear where there is a double garage with car port and store. There is also a summerhouse overlooking an attractive pond area with trees. In addition there are fruit cages and the property benefits from a well. Leading off from the kitchen is a large terrace taking full advantage of the sun with a timber pergoda and raised walls with lighting. Steps lead up to a large lawned area, suitable for a tennis court/croquet lawn etc. There is also a secondary gate onto Mount Pleasant Lane.

There are proposed plans for a triple garage block with games room over to be located in the car parking area to the front of the house with parking to the rear. The proposal is for a blockwork build clad in timber boarding to give it a rustic appearance. It has also been designed with steels to support the first floor.

Just after the Monkey Brewhouse turn left into Sway Road and shortly after the turning to Mount Pleasant Lane the property will be found on the right hand side.
