The property is approached off the small country lane onto a shared drive leading through timber gates into the parking area of the property. To the front stone steps lead onto a flagstone terrace with beds either side containing low clipped box hedging and onto the impressive canopied entrance door.
The gardens to the rear have been landscaped forming individual 'rooms' and the planting used to create a lovely array of seasonal colours, interest and aromas as you wander throughout. Adjacent to the garden room is a two tier flagstone terrace which is perfect for outside dining and entertaining, having an ornamental pond on the upper level. A rivulet runs underneath the terrace from a gully creating a lovely living water feature. From here an expanse of lawn runs around the edge of the plot where there is a timber summer house sitting next to a couple of mature poplars which have been under-planted with spring bulbs. Of particular note is the beautiful circular sunken garden planted with aquilegias and fuchsias featuring a water rill, surrounded by a ring of pleached lime trees. In the corner of the plot, alongside the lane, is the extensive and very productive kitchen garden, containing greenhouse, glasshouse and potting shed. A 24' (7.32m) poly-tunnel, cold frame and compost area with herbs, flowers for picking a selection of fruit trees and a variety of soft fruit bushes. Moving back towards the house is a 'parterre' garden formed from low clipped box hedging with the rivulet running alongside it and continuing beneath the lane to the other side.
From Ross on Wye proceed easterly along the A40 towards Gloucester, through the village of Weston Under Penyard and on reaching Ryeford turn right signposted Pontshill and Hope Mansell, follow this road for approx. 2 miles, taking the third turning on the left opposite Parkfields signposted Hope Mansell. Continue on this lane for just over a mile until Sutton Barn appears on your left, turn right immediately after, up the driveway and the entrance to 'the Streete' and Streete Farmhouse is straight ahead.
