Other particularly appreciated qualities include : authentic terra cotta floor tiles, exposed beam ceilings, a cobble stone drive and partly stone façades. Total living area : main house 235 m², separate guest accommodation 50 m², independent guest suite 15 m², pool house 40 m² First impressions, driving down the cobble stone drive are pleasant and one is not disappointed in opening the welcoming front door to discover a large hall and very generous sitting room with its monumental fireplace. To the left, a wide arch to the dining room, to the right another wide arch (but with sliding doors), to the study/den/TV room, and in front a large covered terrace/summer dining room dominating the garden and pool.

Upstairs : the master suite, again enjoying a large terrace/solarium as well as a dressing room and very comfortable bathroom ; a further bedroom and separate bathroom.
