The front gardens comprise a broad expanse of lawn with well stocked shrub borders, with the rear gardens being a particular feature, having been beautifully landscaped to provide an extensive paved sun terrace which enjoys a private, sheltered and extremely sunny south and westerly aspect. Broad steps lead onto a lawned terrace, beyond which there is a 'lower' garden, planted with a variety of fruit trees. Throughout, these gardens are well enclosed to all sides by mature hedging and timber and wire fencing, providing a well enclosed and secure environment, ideal for those with children, pets or visiting grandchildren. For sale with the additional benefit of immediate vacant possession with no onward chain, we strongly recommend all interested prospective purchasers arrange an early viewing appointment.
