The deep, tandem garage (11.0m x 3.9m) has a single up and over garage door to the front, concrete floor, and wooden rafters with substantial space for storage above.  This fantastic space has a built-in work bench to the rear, light and electrical points as well as mains water and drainage.  To the side 2 single and 1 stable door open into the garage with a section to the rear boarded off to provide excellent storage for wood or as a dog kennel.  A further wooden shed with double doors sits to the side of the garage.
