Part way up the garden is a large level grassed area which is ideal as a vantage point and sitting area. Steps from the terrace are stone topped and lead up to a paved sitting area outside the master bedroom suite. Sited in the garden is a wooden summerhouse (7'7"x5'8"/2.31m x 1.72m) and a large wooden garden shed (12' x 6'6"/3.65m x 1.98m).
