At the front is a small walled forecourt garden, and there is an entrance porch that retains period panelling and front door. At the rear is a pleasant mature garden, and it has access to Penybryn Way at the rear. The property benefits from having gas central heating from a modern wall-mounted Ariston combi boiler that is situated in the kitchen, and there are radiators virtually throughout.
