The second outbuilding is a large former chicken shed with double doors, power and light.

There are 2 smaller outbuildings - a garden store and a former outside toilet and at the rear of the double storey outbuilding is a 3 bay car port.

Gardens

One of the main features of this property is the extensive and well maintained garden. To the front is a formal garden with a central path leading from the personal gate, up a paved pathway to the portico and front door. This garden is bordered to all three sides by low stone walling with a gated access leading into the side garden and courtyard and opening on the other side onto the driveway. The driveway is accessed through double gates and runs along the side of the property before opening out into two parking areas, one right by the rear of the house with space for one or two vehicles, the second by the car port and providing parking for a large number of vehicles. The rest of the gardens run to the side and rear side of the property. By the house is a large raised terraced area which benefits from south and west orientation and this then steps down to a large lawned area fully enclosed by stone walling and fencing obscured by mature hedging. This makes it ideal for dogs and children. There are also borders and beds stocked with a wide variety of plants and shrubs. Gated access leads from the terrace to the rear courtyard with the garden store and then the parking area, whilst a second gated access at the bottom of this enclosed area leads into the rest of the garden. The garden then extends behind this area and down beyond to provide a large lawn interspersed with a kitchen garden, pond, fruit trees, a feature circular stone bed and also a greenhouse.
