The landscaped grounds are a major feature. The front lawn has been partly left unmown to allow wild flowers to grow and seed. An attractive cedar atlantica grows on the other side of the drive. There is off street parking for four cars. At the rear, the private, mature, terraced garden has been landscaped to form different garden 'rooms'. From the rear aspect, there are lovely views to Thrupp Woods in winter, while in summer the garden is secluded with glimpses across the valley. The split level paved terrace is perfect for entertaining. The middle terrace has patches of wild flowers and a professionally made wild life pond. Below, in a preservation area, grow mature trees and shrubs and it is bounded by a Cotswold dry-stone wall, with a gate giving access to Rodborough Common, a National Trust property. To the side of the garage is a working area with a green house and composting facilities.

Bownham Mead is a private development with a Residents Association. Covenants apply to this property.
