The property comes to life outside. The gardens and paddocks surround the property to one side like an amphitheatre, meaning the majority of the land is visible from within the house.
To the front of the property there is an impressive koi carp pond with stone retaining walls and Indian sandstone terrace. To the side, there are stone paths and stone retaining walls with mature flower and shrub beds atop. Three sets of stone steps lead up to an elevated lawn where there is a further fenced off duck pond in the adjoining paddock.
Next to the koi carp pond there is an open fronted wood shed with corrugated metal roof and timber walls. Beyond a paved slab path leads to a 96m2 concrete hardstanding , where at the end there is a pole barn with corrugated metal roof with timber panelled walls and an adjoining poly tunnel. Within the paddock next door there is a further pole barn with five bar metal gate to the front, corrugated metal roof and timber clad walls.
The land is split into three sloped paddocks dotted with mature fruit trees and enclosed with stock fencing. There are fantastic panoramic views towards the Malvern Hills from the top of the fields.
