OUTSIDE The Granary is approached via a 5 bar wooden gate which leads to a parking area for several vehicles and the detached oak-framed open bay garage. There is an additional 5 bar gate located near the side of the Garage to allow large vehicles to gain access. The gardens are a real feature of the property and are arranged in three separate areas. The main garden enjoys a southerly aspect, is extremely private and laid to lawn with mature shrub and herbaceous borders. A large decked terrace at one end is perfect for al fresco dining and entertaining. A secluded paved courtyard with a raised ornamental bed with mature Olive tree feature, accessed off the Drawing Room, is another delightful area to entertain. A further "secret" decked garden area is tucked behind the garage and makes the perfect sun trap and could facilitate a hot tub.
