Drenched in sunlight from the rear facing window and enjoying a super outlook over the established gardens behind and with distant views of the history.

Interestingly, a narrow 2 foot wide door way at the back, steps down to what we think might be an old brick and concrete bomb shelter, measuring 8ft 1" maximum, narrowing to 5ft 5" x 6ft. This has a further external ledge and brace door leading out to the rear garden. A rather useful storage facility
GARDEN 78ft x 36ft
You could easily spend hours sitting on the Sun Trap Veranda gazing out over the rear garden, as it is completely unoverlooked from all angles, and makes for a perfect summer time entertaining and dining area.
Plastic corrugated sheeting rain proofs the Veranda which is flooded with sunlight being a south facing garden.
The balance of the garden is long established with a lawn and well stocked borders.
