This property is easily reached from the town on a tarmac road then a short dirt track, although in the hills there are many large flat terraces and lovely walkways. The two houses are a short distance from each other giving privacy for each.

On this pretty plot with many shade and fruit trees there is a glamping station with an artfully cut caravan as a bedroom, outdoor kitchen and bathroom. There is abundant pure mountain water and fertile land for gardening and vegetable growing.

The main house has been fully renovated and modernized and comprises a spacious and light open-plan kitchen, dining and living area with a wood burning fire and the most amazing views through huge picture windows. There is a snug which could be an office or second bedroom if required and a large, light bedroom with en-suite bathroom. The bedroom can be accessed via the house or independently from outside. Adjoining the house is a fabulous one bedroomed en-suite annex with open-plan living and kitchen area and its own pellet burning stove.

The guesthouse has three large bedrooms each with their own bathroom and independent access. The open-plan kitchen, dining and living area is made even larger by a conservatory running the length of the house.

The property has potential for rural tourism, or a residence plus a B&B/guesthouse - but would equally be ideal to set up as two family homes. Should be seen!
