The front garden of this detached property faces south so is much the best place to sit on a summer’s day. A deep limestone terrace bordered by a low wall and large arch defines the space and offers some separation from the rest of the garden. The mature trees and hedging to the front boundary provide privacy from the roadside and allow this garden to be used in a similar way to a back garden.
Levels within this garden have been subtly adjusted to expose the original stone step leading to the entrance and the terrace dropped to negate the need for any steps. The terrace and garden are flanked by two stone cobbled drives with corresponding gates leading to twin garages.
Laying cobbles on this scale is a labour of love but the results are worth the time and meticulous to attention to detail. The limestone and sandstone cobbles compliment the stone of the house. Minimal planting and a simple, well laid lawn keep maintenance to a minimum.
