This country house has been well renovated to make the most of the space. It is located in the country side and is easily reached on a tarmac road with just a few hundred metres of flat dirt track. It sits at the end of the track passing a few neighbours on the way. It is only an 8-minute drive to the town, easy access to the motorway for the airport and with a café/bar a few minutes away over the river which runs nearby.

The house comprises open plan living, dining and kitchen areas with a pantry, two bedrooms and a bathroom. There is a front door and a kitchen door and lots of natural light. Reverse air conditioning and a log burner along with roof and floor insulation and the high wood ceilings help to maintain an ambient temperature. Adjoining the house is a large utility room and, in the house, and under the terrace are lots of storage areas. A large terrace runs the length of the house and includes an outdoor kitchen with a bread oven.

Higher up on the land there is a concrete base for a large tent with it’s own toilet and shower, electricity and water. There are raised vegetable beds, a greenhouse, a tool shed and a small tractor shed. The land is clear and well looked after with lots of olive trees, some citrus and other trees and beautiful views to the hills.
This would be a great permanent home for animal lovers or keen horticulturists.
