Built to exacting standards in part of the old gardens of the late Victorian house which lies adjacent, individually constructed for the present owners who have resided for some 18 years. Much of the architectural detail of the property has been created from earlier period houses, especially the Victorian house, Southwood, which lies adjacent. A number of the windows have a moulded stone surround, as does the main entrance doorway with its traditional gothic lintel, once again moulded stone support with a pair of windows flanking the door, also in moulded stone. The property as a whole is in beautiful condition and occupies a generous and very private plot with large forecourt and a York stone terrace and herbaceous borders.
