This absolutely charming, pink sandstone, semi-detached cottage stands beyond a stone-built wall with inset gate opening to a footpath to the front door and has pebbled areas to either side dotted with specimen planting. A second gated access gives way to the extensive Tarmacadam driveway providing parking for numerous cars and leading to the detached brick-built garage with one electronically controlled and one manual door, ample power points and several fluorescent lights to work by.
To the rear elevation is a stone flagged path with steps to the raised sun terrace and al fresco dining area which sits alongside a raised lawn with island rockery, herbaceous borders and enclosed by a low brick retaining wall with rose laden arbour entrance to the drive. Beyond is a further lawn garden enclosed by borders simply brimming with summer colour and having an island bed for container displays. A further arbour leads through to an extensive lawn area which also extends to the rear of the neighbouring property and is dotted with fir and specimen trees and has an array of island beds whilst, to one side, is a vegetable and autumn cut-flower bed. To the opposite border, the mature trees have spring bulb planting beneath, there are two timber storage sheds with power and light and, behind the garage, is a greenhouse and glazed plant shelter. For added convenience, there are five outside taps strategically placed throughout this breath-taking garden.
Nb. The garage footings have been strengthened to enable a further storey to be added to the building, if required, and with the usual planning and building control regulations.
