Gardens and grounds
Outside Willow Tree Farm comes into its own. Outbuildings include a double garage with 3 external lockable wooden stores, a detached timber and felt roofed chalet and a block built shed. There is also a magnificent 40’ x 24’ secure agricultural barn, block built and timber clad with full height metal doors. Part of this building incorporates a storage room, a stable and a single garage, all with electricity. Within the barn there is a “dairy” room which has a sink and water.
At end of the building there is a machinery store with a full height metal door with a block wall separating it from the wood store. There is an additional lean-to workshop with another storage room, A second 40’ x 24’ covered barn, 2 polytunnels with lockable tool shed beside, 3 greenhouses, a potting shed and garden store. Add to this a double dog kennel and there is certainly no shortage of useful outbuildings, and all are well presented.
The land comprises approximately 20.5 acres and is level with enough slope for drainage. Entering the property on a long concrete drive, there is a sweeping, gravel drive with parking for several cars and a gravel turnaround. Half way down the concrete drive, there is a large wooden picket fence which runs across from the garage to the hedge having very large wooden gates allowing access to buildings and land. Pleasant gardens incorporating lawns and a variety of colourful flowers and shrubs which include a tapestry of daffodils in spring. Triangularly shaped, the land which is mainly culm, widens out to the rear where there is a productive vegetable garden with 20 raised beds. This leads to 2 large pasture fields with 2 separate gates onto the public highway. At the far corner of the land is an area of one and a quarter acres of mature mixed deciduous woodland which is full of wildlife. From the fields there are 2 pedestrian and 1 vehicle gate into the wood. There is a delightful conservation area with pond and an island.
