The heart of the house is the kitchen/dining room with a huge stone fireplace, oak table and all the cooking kit you might need, plus a gas fired chargrill, central island and big American style fridge. Just a few steps away is one of the terraces overlooking the pool and garden – a shady spot for lunch. Thick walls keep the sitting rooms cool and there are games and books for the odd inclement day.
Teenagers will adore the games room with pool table and board games, TV and DVDs, but mostly you’ll be out of doors: an acre of stunning garden is all yours with a heated saltwater swimming pool, plenty of places to sit or eat, comfortable sun beds, table tennis and two barbecues for long evenings of convivial fun and good food. The pigeonnier is a grand spot for a sundowner.
Bedrooms are spread across the three floors: all are very comfortable with crisp cotton sheets and their own shower rooms – one has a claw foot bath.
