EXTERIOR The property is set back behind Cross Green with a lovely view towards the village windmill. The front garden is predominantly laid to lawn bordered by a hedge to the front with a range of shrubs and perennials. Adjacent to this is a shingled driveway which continues to the very rear of the property, accessed via two five bar gates, where there is parking for numerous vehicles and in turn leads to the double garage.

Beyond the house is a full width Indian Sandstone terrace accessed by three sets of double French doors. The garden is beautifully shaped and predominantly laid to lawn with shaped borders packed with a wide range of perennials, shrubs and trees. Adjacent to this is a pathway which is gravelled and paved until you reach the barn beyond which it is then block paved. At the very end is a stunning, partially enclosed, hexagonal timber framed Gazebo with power and lights installed.

GARAGE 12' 9" x 8' 2" (3.91m x 2.49m) Fitted with twin Hormann remote control electrically operated doors, power and light.

AGENTS NOTE The property benefits from having Solar PV panels discretely fitted to the rear of the barn. The 3.6kw array comprises 15 Panasonic HIT panels which produce an average annual payment of over £750 from the feed-in-tariff (FIT). In addition, the panels are estimated to save the household a further £300 to £400 in electricity costs by using household appliances when the system is generating electricity.

The wiring has been replaced and added to where necessary and the fuse board updated. In addition, the barn benefits from having 3 phase capacity if needed.

The property was re-roofed in 2005.
