On a plot of approximately 1600m² is situated a dream of a house and garden enclosed by pretty ironwork railings and an impressive double gate for vehicle access to the garage. A further small gate leads to the sweeping stone staircase and a small front terrace. There is an imposing front door and a lovely entrance hall with decorated glass-panelled doors opening in to a long wide corridor. To the right and the left of this corridor/hallway are; a formal dining room, a dining room/ kitchen that has access to the lovely large balustraded terrace overlooking the garden, a sitting room, an office/bedroom, a bathroom and a dressing room..
Midway on the stairs that take us to the first floor is a separate wc and at the top of the stairs another lovely long wide corridor leading to the five bedrooms, one with en-suite and the family bathroom.
The ground floor has a large garage, this used to house the carriage and two horses back in the day, a store room, a workshop and a former summer kitchen leading to the light filled orangery/winter garden. The huge ancient winery is also on the ground floor with independent access, large concrete and wooden wine vats line the walls either side, this space has great potential to either re-generate a wine business or would make a fabulous wine tasting/bar venue for the local wines, art gallery etc., etc. There is also rear access to the property via a long private driveway with ample parking and remote-controlled gates.
The mature garden is full of mediterranean plants, palms, trees and bushes together with a small cactus garden and a well.

The house does needs a bit of updating and decorating but wow! What a property when done.
