From the country lane a private car port (electric gates) gives access to the large courtyard garden with double garage.  Here the gravelled drive sweeps alongside the length of the house, providing ample parking and turning. Here there is a paved and sheltered, south facing terrace ideal for al fresco dining, as well as an abundantly planted herbaceous border.  All is encircled by an attractive high brick wall with coping stones that arcs around the western boundary.

The large and broad rear garden sits directly behind the property.  Accessed directly from the house, the elevated York stone terrace is edged with clipped box hedging and the formal lawned garden are framed with parkland railings and scattered with newly planted trees  Wide stone steps lead down to the extensive area of lawn that descends gently from the house providing uninterrupted panoramic views across the rolling hills, fields and pastures of the Wolds.  The whole is bounded by a high sculpted wall with coping stones on two sides of the property and a timber fence.
