On the roof to the rear elevation, photo voltaic (solar) panels have been fitted, providing useful electricity. To one side of the main house there is some useful 'barn' storage with a tallet or loft over and if desired, this area could be incorporated in the main accommodation, subject to any relevant consents.
Established gardens surround the house and beyond, there is an enclosed paddock, originally a cider orchard, with a field shelter and has been newly fenced. There are further sheds, plus 1 large stable and another small stable closer to the house, with parking on approach.
