The Property
This substantial late Victorian house is thought to have been built in 1890 and offers excellent accommodation amounting to just over 4,000 sq. ft. With three well-proportioned reception rooms and five double bedrooms and a single together with a good sized garden it is ideal as a family house and there is considerable scope for further updating and improving. There is also potential for alterations and enlargement subject to planning permission.

Yew Trees is set in the centre of its gardens which amount to approximately half an acre and which would benefit from further landscaping. Immediately to the south of the house and opposite two principal reception rooms is a south facing lawn and terrace which extends round to the front of the house where there is also parking for several cars and a garage which lies at the foot of the drive. Behind the house the garden is wooded and slopes steeply up to the rear boundary which directly adjoins the National Trust owned Lardon Chase.
