Property Description

Completely private and enclosed by stone walls, a covered porch with stunning views of the surrounding area and of stunning sunsets. The living area of the cottage is on the first floor and the entrance can be accessed from the covered porch or veranda at the top of the stairs leading up from the enclosed patio area.

The house has two sitting-rooms, 4 bedrooms and another covered veranda which gives access to the kitchen (with a fireplace) and adjacent dining-room with pantry, and to the bathroom (with bath, sink and toilet) this veranda could be easily turned into a conservatory with sliding windows along a complete side – left open in the summer months and closed in the winter. On the ground floor under the house there are seven storerooms which could be converted into even more living space. On the enclosed patio area there is an outdoor kitchen with an old fireplace to smoke meats and
sausages, a storeroom and a large car port with tiled roof.

The roof has a structure of chestnut wood in good condition but may need retiling. Mains electricity on the property connected and a new fuse box installed recently. Water supply from two sources: mains water and/or a well which never dries out.

The plot with 700m2 has several fruit trees: 1 heritage apple tree, several grapevines. a persimmon and a pomegranate tree.

Access to the enclosed part of the property is through large double iron gates (wide enough for a medium-sized van!) which once closed make the property completely private and hidden from view, perfect for any kind of outdoor use of the space: a swimming pool, BBQ, pets and a safe play area for children.
