The south facing rear garden was redesigned and landscaped in 2012 with black limestone paving, flanked by retaining walls with pedestrian access to a 'twitten'. There is considerable scope to adapt and extend the ground floor accommodation into the aforementioned garden space, all subject to the requisite planning and building consents.
