The apartment has its own front door, giving access to a large garden area with garden furniture, barbecue and the use of a tennis court and trampoline. We have recently joined the world of superfast broadband and installed a bio-mass boiler for environmentally friendly heating.
With a choice of 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and 2 sitting rooms there is plenty of room for everyone. A well-equipped utility room on the ground floor provides every facility for making the most of all the beautiful area offers.
