The gardens are split via a driveway which provides access to the paddocks and stables and also access to a parking area and garden for the cottage. The cottage currently does have it's own private area of lawned gardens to the side.
POTENTIAL PARKING AND GARDEN FOR THE COTTAGE
Accessed via the driveway through the main garden, this area of land could be used for parking for the cottage and also would provide a spacious garden. There is a sectional garage and also access to the three oil tanks serving the properties. A further gate leads to the paddocks and stables.
Initially upon entering the area there is a fenced pony paddock which potentially could be used as a menage. To the rear of the pony paddock is a fully enclosed field with access via a five bar gate. The field is a ridge and furrow grass field and is enclosed by fencing and hedging and which has a natural spring water trough at the top of the field. There is also vehicular access to the stable block.

Please note that a farmer has right of access via the second driveway for the cutting of a single field to the rear of the property. The vendors inform us that this is only used once/twice a year.
The cottage has it's own oil tank and boiler but shares electricity with the main house. The property is all on one council tax band which the vendor informs us is a band D.
The property is believed to be freehold and we await solicitors confirmation.
Mains water and electricity are connected. Drainage is by way of septic tank. There are three oil tanks; one for the main house, one for the Aga in the main house and one for the cottage. The agents have not tested or inspected the services or service installations and buyers should rely on their own survey.
