Wedderlie House is the last house at the end of a no-through road, a five bar gate leads onto the driveway over a bridge onto a parking/turning area for a number of vehicles, leading round to the garage and carport to the rear.
There is a terrace adjoining two sides of the property with a brick retaining wall, having an outlook over the garden and enjoying privacy.
The gardens are a plantsmans paradise and in the current ownership have been stocked with numerous varieties of rhododendrons, camellias and azaleas, magnolias and other species from the Himalayas and major plant collections. There are also a number of mature oak trees and Scots Pines.
Various pathways intersect the semi-woodland leading down to a small stream.
