An enclosed garden surrounded by head-high timber fence panels can be found to the rear of the house. Features include a lawn and a patio accessed via sliding patio doors from the dining room as well as a brick-built, L-shaped outbuilding offering both indoor and outdoor storage space.

The separate dining room currently doubling as an office includes a solid-wood floor, plenty of space for a family-sized dining table and chairs, with the three-quarter-length sliding glass doors letting in plenty of light and allowing access to the patio and rear garden.
The kitchen includes an easy-to-clean, stone-effect, tiled floor with modern base and eye-level wall units in wood above and below granite-effect worktops, illuminated by under-unit down-lighting. Dark-coloured, ceramic splashback tiles have been fitted above all the cooking and preparation areas while the design also incorporates a dual oven and four-ring ceramic hob beneath an illuminated extractor as well as a stainless steel sink beneath a window overlooking the rear garden.
