The Outdoor Spaces
The outdoor areas are just as captivating as the interiors, starting with an 80m2 covered loggia to the rear of the house that opens directly on to the garden from several of the downstairs rooms, providing the perfect indoor/outdoor living and entertaining space throughout the year; being both cool in the summer and sheltered in the winter.
It is furnished in a natural rustic chic style with reclaimed wood tables and colonial ironwork chairs.
As for the gardens, well according to the current owners, “When the afternoon light hits the trees, the garden is a joy to behold.” And it really is.
A gorgeous 1000m2 walled garden contains some very lovely fruit trees, including 100-year-old Persimmon and Loquat trees to give welcome shade from the heat of the afternoon sun.
The large swimming pool, which has been specially designed to look out over the mountains, is the perfect, peaceful spot to while away the afternoons, soaking up nature and the surrounding silence of the countryside.
There are plenty of other outdoor areas to enjoy – either by yourself or with family and guests, with several patio terraces.
Over its long and varied past, this enchanting property has seen many stories unfold; as a private residence and business, hosting hundreds of weddings, anniversaries, parties, retreats and business events.
