The principle rooms in the house orientate towards the views down the garden, there are three first floor bedrooms and one on the ground floor, a family room, a suite of offices that could become excellent living space and the architecturally designed rounded swimming pool complex adds another interesting dimension.

Behind the house is the garage outbuilding that is supplied with power and water with storage/ workshop and wine store on the ground floor, wooden staircase to a converted studio apartment above.

The gardens are a well manicured feature of the property approached up a 250 ft drive to a turning circle around mature trees in front of the garage building, all of which is currently screened from the garden.
