From Allen Lane the property is approached by a long driveway leading to a secluded position surrounded by beautiful gardens and woodland. The main approach to the property is via a block paved drive which sweeps around a landscaped turning circle with water feature, mature plants and flower beds. A large lawn to one side borders the driveway and leads to the large detached stone barn/stable/workshops. Currently there is gated access to the enclosed paddocks which are approximately 2.5 acres and are available by separate negotiation.

There are extensive gardens and grounds to the side and rear with an array of mature trees, rhododendrons and natural fauna and flora which is part of a protected wildlife site. Additionally there is a useful fruit orchard with mulberry, apple, damson, pear, cherry trees perfect for jam making and baking. Additionally there is a further part of the garden which is set as a vegetable plot and soft fruit garden.

There is a beautiful newly planted laburnum tree walk with views over the garden and leading down from here is a large greenhouse plus a potting shed both with power and water pump supplying the garden with a full irrigation system serviced from a well. Nearby is a summer house measuring 9'7" x 7'8" with electricity supply. Throughout the garden are power points and outside taps in addition to the irrigation system allowing maintenance to be carried out with ease.

On a raised position at the end of the main garden is a period stone built castellated "folly" currently inhabited by barn owls.

Leading from the curtilage of the garden, and available by separate negotiation, there is a fully regenerated former quarry now a thriving woodland making a walk on your own grounds a true delight. Adjacent to the quarry there is an enclosed spinney with mature trees. The property as a whole sits on an interesting and unique topography.
