The property is approached off a country lane via a pair of stone pillars which lead to a meandering private driveway, flanked on either side by evergreen trees. The driveway leads to a gravel car parking and turning area, providing ample parking and where access to the double garage can be gained. The gardens lie to the west of the house and are predominantly lawned, interspersed with number of mature trees, shrubs and bushes.
