A tarmac driveway leads to a gravelled area to front of the house, this offering ample off road parking for several cars. There are flower beds to either side of the front door.

Wooden Arch leads to a good sized area of lawn with gravelled pathways and mature trees, shrubs and plants, thus offering colour throughout the year. A wooden bridge leads over the burn that runs along the bottom of the garden.

A gravelled pathway leads to the left hand side of the house and continues round to the rear and steps. An outside stone store can also be found to this side. Steps leads down to the riverbank.

To the rear there is a mixture of paved and gravelled areas.

The original house dates from around 1850 and the Kitchen extension is at least 100 years old. The bathroom flat roof extension dates from around 1970’s and the Conservatory was built by the current owner in 2006. The external walls to the house and Kitchen extension are of rendered solid stone construction and the bathroom extension is of rendered cavity brick.
