Dating from the late 18th/early 19th century the house was originally used as an ancient dwelling and barn and its conversion in 2008 has retained many original features whilst now enjoying luminous spaces with every modern comfort. Now a charming luxurious home of character with approx. 240 m² of space for families and friends to enjoy.

The sun rises over the front of the house which has a sweeping gravel courtyard and gardens with lawns and mature shrubs and trees to the front, side and rear.
