At the top of the garden is the vegetable patch which yields fine produce each year and there is a useful garden shed. Adjacent is the large detached block built studio which is a substantial part of the property. It occupies a good spot at the end of the garden and therefore can provide escapism. It has been used as an artist/craft studio where a local group had been meeting (pre-Covid). It has power, light and water connected and is a wash of natural light through its glazed roof.
