To the west side of the house is an extensive timber deck ideal for outside entertaining and adjacent 'hydro pool' swim spa. The majority of the garden is lawned with an abundance of various mature shrubs and trees with an electric underground wire system surrounding the total perimeter of the grounds (Dog Fence).
