One of the main features of this very special property are the large gardens and grounds that the house sits within. Totally private, the grounds comprise superb gardens with established mature trees which have been well loved and maintained over the years and are mainly laid to lawn. The main garden immediately to the rear of the house is a lawned area with some planted beds and an ornamental pond, with a block paved courtyard garden to the one side. There is a side door to the rear porch, utility room and side garage from this courtyard and an archway leads to the front driveway with parking for several cars and access to the large garage.
To the side of the house is a raised lawned area with an abundance of mature trees and shrubs.
Uplands gardens and grounds extends to 1.29 acres. The vendors are prepared to offer the land and stables to the rear, extending to 1.81 acres, with a separate right of way to Coopers Hill, for an additional £100,000.
