The gardens of Whitegates have been lovingly tended over the years by its present owner. Green fingered experts will see that the gardens are well stocked with a large variety of wonderful cottage garden flowers, shrubs and trees. Extending to around 3/4 acre and with areas laid to lawn, mature herbaceous borders, climbing roses, the whole plot being extremely private, tranquil, secluded and surrounded by natural stone walling, fencing and established hedges. To the side and front of the plot two large Yew trees with dry stone walls either side lead into a overgrown Orchard with abundance of mature fruit trees. A pretty wrought iron gate leads from the orchard in to the rear gardens with a GREENHOUSE and soft fruit area.
The overall measurement of the site is 205ft length x 120ft wide (approximately).
Potential buyers might be interested to know that a Pre Planning Application was made recently for the demolition of the existing property and build of two New Properties on the site. Initial application was received positively by NSC. Obviously buyers would need to investigate further themselves.
