One of the best features of this lovely property is the outside space which gives you an overall plot of just under two acres - with loads of parking, gardens laid mainly to lawn and paddocks to the rear.
The property is approached over a private road shared by three properties, and then Outlands Cottage has a feature electric wooden gate set within brick walling to either side and opening to a tarmacadam driveway. There are lawns to either side of the driveway which leads up to the Cottage and a timber framed triple Car Port (23'9" x 15'4) with eaves storage area, concrete flooring and light and power.
A tarmacadam pathway to the side of the Car Port leads round to the Log Store and a hard standing, covered drying area and an adjoining timber shed and LPG gas storage tank.
The main lawned Gardens to the side and rear of the property have hedge boundaries, evergreen borders with sandstone edging and a large paved patio - and a gravelled pathway goes round the entire Cottage. A wooden gate to the side of the property leads to a pathway (with public right of way) and then a further path with post and rail fencing to two grass paddocks and on to the stable block.
The L-shaped timber stable block has a concrete base and standing area, with canopy over the doors, with a tack/feed room (11'8" x 8'0") with fuse box, light and Power STABLE BLOCK
The path to the L-shaped timber stable block has been covered with bark which helps weather proof it through winter, and the block itself has a concrete base and standing area, canopy over the two stable doors and a tack/feed room (11'8" x 8'0") with fuse box, light and power. Stable 1 is approximately 12'0" x 11'4" and Stable 2 16'4" x 11'4" - both have automatic water feeders - and there is a Store Room (12'0" x 11'9") with double doors, light and power. There's also a timber mounting block (not tested!) and outside tap.
