    The property is approached via a tree-lined drive with views across three fenced paddocks. This property sits in 9.2 acres.

A door leads from the driveway into a walled vegetable garden with raised beds, espaliered fruit trees, and a greenhouse. It is adjacent to a gated dog run and the fenced orchard.

    Dating from the 1930’s, the house has been extended. The entrance hall has a contemporary wood burning stove.
