The property has a traditional front garden predominantly laid to lawn with ornamental fountain. There is a block paved driveway providing off road parking. The block paving leads around to the rear of the property where there is a patio area. The carp pond dominates the rear garden but Peter and his wife have spent years blending the rockery areas and growing foliage to make anyone believe the pond was naturally formed. Incredible!

The Pond

Constructed by world renowned Koi Carp enthusiasts and vendors of this property. Peter Waddington has written numerous publications on the subject of Koi Carp and constructed this pond in 2001. For the aficionados, the total water volume is 75,000 litres and the depth is 2.35 meters. The pump and filtration system is housed discreetly in a 'bunker' style building at the end of the garden and is truly something to see. The roof has been cleverly laid to act as a patio area overlooking the pond.
