    Sun Porch
    The porch catches the sun for much of the day and is a lovely place to sit and relax and watch the world go by.
  • Gardens
    There is private parking for three cars. To the rear there is a drying green and space for a kick-about. Beside the house is an enclosed area with a picnic bench that seats eight and a bench against the gable end of the house so that you can move with the sun. It is not unusual to see red kites flying high in the sky and swallows, starlings and wagtails nesting in the old steading.

    A road passes the front of the house which services the houses in Embo Street, but as this is a cul-de-sac the traffic flow is low.
