Integral Garage (19′ 10″ x 9′ 02″ or 6.05m x 2.79m)
An electrically controlled access door opens to a very big garage/workshop space, with excellent ceiling height, storage and working areas. Here there is also a gas boiler for heating and hot water supply to the house.

AGENTS NOTE: It is thought possible this garage space would easily convert into additional living accommodation, possibly creating a separate annexe, for, say, a dependant relative? Subject to the necessary planning regulations.

Rear Garden
Accessed from either the dining or breakfast room on to a spacious flagstone patio terrace, full width, raised from the remaining plot and with retaining wrought iron fencing. “Return steps” then lead down to a delightfully arranged and presented plot centred around a circular lawn, edged with brick pavia and a flagstone path. The surrounding, well stocked beds include a wide variety of shrubs, plants and evergreens, which offer ‘All Year Round Colour’!
