The tastefully renovated accommodation includes 3 large reception rooms, office, kitchen, utility and WC on the ground floor, with 5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a shower room on the first floor. There is a covered dining terrace and a glass-fronted room, currently housing a spa. Double glazing throughout, oil-fired central heating and some air-conditioning.
