A lot of thought and effort has gone into the landscaped design of this lovely exterior space which is secluded, extremely private and quiet. There are two wonderful balconies and a decked seating area. Directly to the rear of the property where the steps down from the kitchen balcony are, a gravelled area extends away from the house making for a wonderful seating space and barbeque area from where this fantastic setting can be enjoyed. A paved and gravel path leads round to the southerly aspect where there is a paved sun terrace from where the level lawn extends to steps up through the mature planted terraced beds to a seating area taking advantage of the amazing views over the Severn Valley. There are further steps from the lawn leading to a small woodland area. The property is surrounded by a fenced and hedged perimeter interspersed with mature specimen trees giving it an element of seclusion yet enjoying the marvellous views across the Severn Valley from all aspects. The variety of plant shrubs and specimen trees provide colour and vibrance throughout the year and attracts an abundance of birds and wildlife.

Throughout the garden there are outside lights, electric sockets and water taps. To the left of the house is a paved area with wooden SHED and steps lead up to a pedestrian gated access to front driveway. There is WORKSHOP/STORE 3'5 x 16'8 with door to either end and light.
