To the front are mature landscaped gardens with a large range of trees, shrubs and perennial plants, including a large variety of iris and roses. The fruit trees, including apricot, plum, apple, pear, cherry and fig are complemented by a large vegetable garden which together provide good cropping and a degree of self sufficiency.

Gardening and pool maintenance services are available from a local social enterprise organisation on a contractual basis. A private gated drive provides access to the front area with plenty of car parking space.
To the rear there are extensive terraced areas (639 square metres) and large swimming pool (10m x 5m). The terrace outside the kitchen provides an ideal area for outdoor eating. An architecturally-designed pavilion provides a shaded eating/relaxation area to one side of the swimming pool. The swimming pool and all the terraced areas have external lighting.

Since purchase in 2001 the property has been used as a private home.

Alternatively, it could continue to be a beautiful home with ample space for friends and family. It can sleep up to 14 people comfortably.
