The property comprises a total of 310 sq m offering 5 bedrooms within two self-contained apartments, or a single large family home, in a beautiful tranquil setting with stunning views of the surrounding countryside but with easy access to the main road.
The original 1800`s farmhouse has been completely rebuilt to a very high standard and re-designed internally to provide spacious and comfortable modern accommodation. Many of the original materials have been re-used and the overall specification is of the highest quality throughout.
The accommodation is currently arranged within two separate apartments but there is also an internal staircase linking the two floors so the whole house can easily be used for single occupancy if preferred. It has excellent letting potential in either format and has proved very popular for holiday lets. The property is licensed for Bed & Breakfast.
The property is approached by a pretty tree lined drive leading to the well established landscaped garden with "pure water" swimming pool and gravelled parking area. The accommodation is arranged as follows.
Ground Floor: Entrance Hall, spacious living room with wood burning stove, two sets of part glazed doors opening to the garden, dining area with double doors onto the garden, fully fitted kitchen with granite work tops and breakfast bar, large utility/store room, Bedroom 1 with ensuite bathroom including large power shower, Bedroom 2 with doors onto the garden, Bathroom 2 with large power shower.

Generally, highest quality materials have been used throughout and the specification includes underfloor heating, high quality sintered ceramic floor tiles, oak beamed ceilings and solid oak doors and window frames.
There are also new photovoltaic panels (electricity generating) which generate around 90% of the energy required for the house. This is an extraordinarily useful and green way to run the house.

The house is set within a fully landscaped and fenced organic garden with 60 mature olive trees, a variety of fruit trees and an organic vegetable garden. There is also an independent well and a rain collecting system for irrigation. The land totals 7 hectares including vineyards, some arable land and a woodland for fuel.
