Undoubtedly a feature of this property are its delightful established gardens both to the front and rear. At the front the property is barely visible from the road and is approached by a circular driveway with areas of lawn, well stocked borders with shrubs, plants and trees etc, central 'island' bed again with numerous shrubs, plants and trees etc. There is access both sides of the property to the rear garden which again is well stocked and established having numerous trees, shrubs and plants. The overall plot is irregular in shape but is approximately 0.3 of an acre. The front garden has an approximate depth of 100ft and width of approximately 65ft, and the rear garden has an approximate depth of 40ft and width of approximately 110ft. All measurements are as a guide and subject to land survey.


As this property is understood to have origins dating back to the 16th Century, we understand that some structural works have been carried out - full details of which are available from the sellers. In brief we gather that in 2006 a tree was removed to the right hand side of the house, and that repairs were carried out with some redecoration. In 2013 there were some further repairs carried out to some cracking, and in 2014 further more structural works were carried out in terms of rebuilding of a section of wall as previous works were insufficient, and that the rebuilding of the wall was a more long term solution. It is understood that all of the works were carried out by Bakers of Danbury. Obviously, any incoming buyer will make their own investigations to make sure they are happy to proceed with a purchase.

Also we understand that at least one of the trees has a Tree Preservation Order on it.
