The property is approached via a country lane with a pair of double automatic security gates opening onto a long driveway which leads down to the detached garage.
The gardens are a lovely feature of the property sloping gently away to the south being mainly laid to lawn with mature hedges and flower and shrub borders. An original Yorkstone terrace surrounds the house on 3 sides with lovely views over the gardens and grounds to the Forest. To the side is a formal area of garden with box hedging and formal planting, a glade of mature oak trees and a large pond with picturesque weeping willow and climbing roses.
