Nestled in a semi-rural locale between modern housing developments lies The Firs. This is a highly attractive location for a smallholding within easy reach of the city centre. The property is accessed of a private driveway to the right of the house, through a courtyard and then through wrought iron gates into the amenity lands to the rear. Particulars of Sale; There are gardens to the front and rear of the property, predominantly laid to lawn with herbaceous borders with a boundary wall. The courtyard is central to the outbuildings which include stables, workshops and a garage which was formerly used as a games room.
