Description

The simple exterior of this house gives no indication of the delightful design features within.

The front door leads straight in to a long formal living room and dining area, which runs right across the front of the house. With a painted wood ceiling and a fireplace at one end, the room is spacious, and painting picks out details around the room, such as the skirting boards and the stone work around the door.

A doorway leads through into the kitchen with another dining area and a smaller sitting room with an unusual rock feature fireplace at one end. The kitchen units are also beautifully painted, with an attractive 'distressed' finish.

In between the front living room and the kitchen is a very well thought out utility area, leading into a modern shower room. To the other side is a cupboard under the stairs, a useful storage space.

A wooden staircase (again beautifully painted!) leads upstairs to a light and airy landing with a door leading out to a terrace which overlooks the garden below. This is paved and there is plenty of room for comfortable seating. A large shed has been built on one side, but this is no ordinary garden shed. With trellised windows, a cat-shaped hole for the resident cat to use and loads of other details, it is a work of art.

Back inside, there are two double bedrooms, the master with an en suite bathroom and lots of custom made fitted wardrobes. On the landing is another shower room and an area currently used as a study. This could easily be converted into a small bedroom with the addition of a stud wall and door, and above it is a mezzanine/attic room, ideal for children.

The garden at the back has been as well designed as the interior. There is a fabulous outside kitchen housing a fitted barbecue, a fridge, stone sink and a bar. Nearby is a large seating area, and the whole garden is surrounded by a low stone wall which overlooks the olive groves next door. There is also an outside shower, with a pretty stone base.

The house has two wood burning stoves on the ground floor, and electric heating and air conditioning upstairs, so will be warm in winter and cool in summer. The owners are leaving the entire contents of the house, so a new owner can step in and take over straight away.

A rare feature of this house is that it has a private, covered, parking area for 2 cars.
