A wood gazebo with fitted table and chairs (available by separate negotiation). Extensive and useful out buildings including a large versatile insulated log cabin with power and heating (currently used as a home office, but could be used as a gym or studio), 2 sheds (one of which is particularly large and benefits from power and water supplies), and a log cabin situated in the paddock to provide an alternative angle on the amazing views. Post and rail fencing separates the paddock from the house and gardens. A wishing well. The low maintenance gardens consist of areas of level lawn, well stocked flower beds, mature shrubs, and hedges. The front driveway is approached via electric solid wood gates and has parking for numerous vehicles. The oak frame garage with clay tiles consists of two parking bays and a large internal store / workshop, as well as an external wood store. The large pond is a particular feature, is stocked with goldfish and grass carp, and is a draw to much wildlife including a kingfisher and wild breeding ducks.
