The driveway leads to a secluded, gravelled courtyard area for each property, with frontage including trees and shrubs and outlook onto paddock land.

The rear garden, walled on two sides, is a spacious flat lawn area surrounded by mixed shrub and container planting, and a low yew hedge bounding the paved sun terrace. A mature specimen acer with surrounding rockery, a gazebo, and a water feature with pond, provide attractive focal points. Oil tank.

Both front and rear gardens benefit from a south-facing aspect and so enjoy a mixture of sun and dappled shade for prolonged periods.
