At the front of the property there is a small area of lawn with shrubs and the driveway that has a sensor activated floodlight allows off road parking.

The rear garden is an outstanding feature of the property boasting a southerly and westerly aspect backing onto the practice area of the city golf course. A large two tier patio extends across the back of the house that allows ample space for al fresco dining. To the rear of the garage is a useful workshop and a wooden shed with a further shed on the right boundary. The remainder of the garden is predominantly laid to lawn with shrubs and trees that create an attractive outlook. A small footbridge crosses over Hollybrook stream that flows through the rear garden.

The Common, Sports Centre and City Golf Course are within a short distance and provide excellent recreational open space.
