Our rural home is recently renovated, modern sunny and bright .
The house has an Annex which makes it ideal for staying with friends or relatives. There is a large sunny kitchen with modern facilities: american fridge/ freezer, range master cooker, and microwave, a breakfast bar with stools and a comfy sofa. A wood burning stove separates the kitchen from the lounge, giving warmth to both rooms. The lounge has a sofa and a range of chairs with a wall mounted TV screen, the roof is partially glass domed to maximise the light. The glass domed dining room is situated in the garden room, with full length windows overlooking the garden.
Upstairs are 2 double bedrooms, one with a balcony overlooking the front garden, and a single bedroom which we use as an office. A marble bathroom has a Jacuzzi bath and a shower.
