There are four bedrooms on the first floor, the principal has a vaulted ceiling and en-suite bathroom and the other three are served by a family bathroom.
The gardens are a real feature of this wonderful home having been thoughtfully landscaped with local stone walling, flagstone terraces and raised flower beds.
