The main feature of Birchwood House is the private enclosed 3/4 acre plot, which the current owner has spent many years developing with an extensive planting programme, with feature areas of the garden for every time of the day, from a camelia corner to a scented rose courtyard, and planted corridors of trees and specimen Acers and Maple trees which all create a year round blend of colours. There is a dedicated vegetable area with 2 large, raised timber sleeper beds, and a large Elite greenhouse. There is also a further workshop/store which again is fully insulated and double glazed.
