The garage is a good size and there is plenty of room for a car and work bench etc. Next to the garage is a ruin which could be developed to create further accommodation or a workshop. Steps lead down to a patio area at the front of the house. Further steps lead down to an outside kitchen and BBQ area which has lighting and power and another patio with feature outside water tap. This would be a perfect place to put a pool (subject to permission).
