The beautiful accommodation is set over three levels with the lower level providing two guest double bedrooms, hallway, large shower room, utility room and access to the garage. A half flight of stairs leads to the stunning master bedroom with vaulted ceiling and French doors to the garden as well as the large en-suite bathroom and built-in storage. Another half flight leads to the bright living room with windows to the fabulous views and doors to the large balcony, where there is ample room for entertaining. Also on this level and enjoying the same views, is the very attractive kitchen with Aga.
