To the front of the house, a mature garden, lots of shrubs and trees, leading down to the village road.
To the rear, the terrace just outside the dining room, with a pergola covered eating area, and 2 small stone outbuildings used as workshop and storeroom, with steps leading up to the garden and, of course, the pool which has a telescopic cover which helps to extend the period of the year when it is comfortable to swim by up to 6 months, or more if you are brave!
The garden has been really well designed and more or less takes care of itself, a variety of fruit trees, soft fruits, veg plot and chicken coop.
The house is centrally heated by an oil system plus of course the wood burner, and is equipped throughout with double glazing, and also boasts an innovative supply ventilation system (VMI) which not only helps to prevent moisture, odours, and other pollutants building up inside a home, and circulate fresh air but also aims to reduce your heating bills.
The property is connected to the main sewer system.
