The house is entered via a large flower, herbs and shrub filled terrace with places to relax and is the main exterior eating and gathering place. This is partly covered but also has vines to provide entire shade in the summer. Here there is also a barbeque area with easy access to the kitchen and facilities.
The front door is off this terrace into the central part of the house which is open plan including a Salon with comfortable seating and a wood burner, an area with the cooking facilities and small veg preparation sink thus cooking can be a communal activity, and includes a separate large diningroom. The rest of the kitchen facilities are immediately off this area with further large room for food preparation and storage as well as the washing up sink, a fridge/freezer, washing machine and dishwasher.
Off the central open plan area is a further study/4th bedroom. This has a full-size single day bed with a further trundle bed and thus can sleep another two people comfortably or can be used as an ‘office’ for visitors who still have to maintain their business contacts!
There is also a downstairs shower room and toilet, log storage and general changing area and a door that leads out to the rear terrace and swimming pool [8 x 4 metres with steps and a shallow end for children]. The pool is set in lawn and surrounded by shrubbery and roses and is completely private and has copious sun beds/loungers with a choice of shade or sun. The pool and lawn is fenced off and accessed through a gate thus easy to supervise small children. Also a variety of games such as ping pong and darts and basketball.
Upstairs are a further three double bedrooms – one with double bed and two with single beds. The double bedroom has direct access to an ensuite private bathroom with toilet [although this can also be shared with the rest of the rooms if required, through a door from the landing] and there is also a separate shower room with toilet on this floor.
Dependent on the time of the year there are grapes, figs, plums and quinces growing around the house and these can be enjoyed by the visitors.
There is central heating for winter lets and ceiling fans in each bedroom for the warm summer nights.
