Synopsis
Unusually, the three-bedroom 1960s house is set well into the 11.5-metre-wide plot, creating a deep front garden with sufficient space for car parking and a paved courtyard garden. It is planted with a framework of structural hornbeam hedges which create privacy from the neighbours, whilst flanking a rose arch that separates the parking area from the main garden in which three island beds are planted with multi-stemmed amelanchiers enclosed in box balls. Seasonal pots and hanging baskets add colour throughout the year, the rear garden is largely laid to lawn, with a broad deck that connects the house to the garden via steps. The deck was built in 2018 from composite decking, replacing a wooden deck that had been badly damaged when the nearby river flooded the entire garden. Today, colourful borders of dahlias, gaura, grasses and clematis surround the deck which is home to a succession container plantings — bulbs for winter and spring, whilst summer brings annuals, herbs, dark-leaved dahlias, and edibles such as tomatoes, courgettes and annuals.
