Inside, the large living room has vaulted beamed ceilings, open fireplace and some exposed brickwork, with TV, DVD and CD player as well as comfy seating. The kitchen diner has a traditional feel, again with beamed ceilings, but the kitchen itself is modern and well equipped with washing machine, dishwasher etc. There is a sofa bed in the downstairs hallway area, so it does not disturb living arrangements upstairs. The living area also leads out onto large covered terrace perfect for those cooler nights, and also offering shade for mid day eating..... The terrace overlooks the garden and pool, with views of uninterrupted countryside. Downstairs there are 2 spacious double bedrooms and a twin room, which has the benefit of an en-suite shower room. There is a further shower room downstairs, with hydromassage shower. The washing machine is also kept here. There is a large entrance hall with double doors leading out to garden. This entrance hall area houses the sofa bed, so one can use the bed, and not have the living room disturbed! The double doors lead into a fenced and large relatively flat garden with gazebo and dining furniture, BBQ, terraced area with table and chairs under a tree, hammock and a large swimming pool 12M x 6M. Views of uninterrupted countryside surround this very private house.
