This commanding property has been renovated with an artistic flair, conserving the many period features found throughout the house like the marble fireplaces in several rooms, the original tiles and wrought ironwork. Spread over 3 floors, it has a pleasing symmetry.
External stone staircases lead to the entrance door at raised ground floor level. A vast hallway runs through the middle of the house, with a living room and a salon on either side, to the front of the house, and a dining room and a kitchen to the back, both of which open out onto the garden. There is also an office and a pantry on this floor.
On the next level, there are 4 large bedrooms, each with en-suite bath/shower rooms and a large hall running through the centre and opening onto a balcony overlooking the street.
The top floor, is currently arranged as a leisure space, with 4 rooms, a studio and a large laundry room. This space can easily be converted into 4 further bedrooms, each with their own en-suite facilities or a large self-contained apartment.
Outside, the walled garden of around 300m² comprises a 7m x 3.5m² pool, mature planting and shaded seating and dining areas.
