Accessed via a double roller shutter door to the front, power and light, rear store area, courtesy door to rear, boiler cupboard to rear with Worcester gas boiler accessed from rear of the garage.


Accessed via a block paved driveway from the road with a pull in area in front of the gate which opens to a block paved drive for two/three cars and gives access to the garage. The majority of the garden is laid to lawn with mature flower and shrub beds and siding onto the woodland. A paved path leads from the drive to front and side access. A covered passage sits between the bungalow and the garage.


The woodland sits to the western side of the property and mostly below it. It is easily accessible from a good path which winds it way through the mature trees and eventually back up a stepped path to the garden again. Within the woodland are a number of stores of various types, ideal for storing tools, or items for use in the woods. There are a number of level clearings which could be used to create a camping or hammocking area, to rest and enjoy the sounds of the birds and the wind in the trees. The Cradley Brook passes through the woodland and a bridge means it can be crossed even if the water goes above welly level. The original owner had spaces within the woods for fruit and vegetable growing, a large polytunnel framework and created a stone-sided stream fed pool to keep fish. The woodland has a magical feel and at the moment (May) has a carpet of wild garlic in parts. It offers a range of uses to the owner, from amenity, wood production, or even an unusual canopy and stars getaway.
