The property has a wrap-around plot and can be accessed from all sides. The current owner has had the area between the driveway and the house landscaped with raised beds providing year-round interest.

The rear garden is a spectacular element of the property and has been beautifully-manicured with paving running around the entire house and various patio areas positioned off the living spaces. The patio areas give way to a large lawned space with an array of mature floral and shrub borders.
