The property is split-level, built into a hillside, so it has the appearance of being single story as you approach it.

Neutral stonework is juxtaposed with the warm brown tones of the wooden beams and windows. The overriding sense is a cosy and inviting one! The style of the interior is completely harmonious with the period and character of the property. The terracotta clay tiles on the floor add further warmth to the interior scheme. There is a feeling of light and space as you enter the property due to the exposed apex beams of the roof.

This triple aspect room is flooded in natural light due to two sets of French doors leading out onto the terrace and a further window. It feels very light and airy, but the biggest advantage of the abundance of windows is the fabulous view that you catch glimpses of from wherever you are in the room.

There are several terraces at this property - one invaluable covered terrace that wraps around the house on three sides of it offering much-needed shade from the heat of the Summer sun. This is directly accessible from the house, via French doors from both bedrooms and main living room.

Or simply to sit and to watch the most mesmerizing sunsets to the West. It’s a fabulous entertaining space, ideal for hosting Summer parties & BBQ’s.
