To the far end of the sitting room, and open plan with it, is the dual-aspect dining area (12m2) with wooden floor.
Off the main entrance hall there are three bedrooms (11.5m2, 11m2 and 9m2) as well as a shower room (shower and twin wash-basins) and a separate WC.
Stairs lead down from the entrance hall to a laundry room / office area which in turn gives access to a garage (24m2 - currently used as a games room), a large boiler / store room, a workshop, a second garage and a wine cellar.
The house sits in a south-west facing plot of 3817m2 (almost one acre). To the front there is a lawn with a number of mature shrubs as well as the drive and turning circle. To the back of the house there is a covered terrace overlooking the heated swimming pool (10m x 5m). To one side there is a useful storage building, ideal for keeping the garden equipment. Beyond this the garden, which has lovely rural views, is mainly left to lawn with a number of trees, shrubs and raised borders.
