Full Description

This is one of the most extraordinary houses I have ever seen and really needs visiting to appreciate.
According to the owner the building was originally part of a twelfth century priory, then burnt down during the religious wars of the fifteenth century and subsequently rebuilt in the seventeenth century. There is a lot of history here!

The house actually consists of three separate dwellings which all connect internally making it something of a maze. On street level there are two garages (one with an internal staircase to the first floor) and a stoned paved entrance hallway beyond the impressive oak front door. To the left of this is a cave dug into the solid rock.
A stone staircase leads to the first floor which contains most of the living accommodation- each of the living units opens into a courtyard garden- at the back wall of this is a games room and a covered portico giving a real Mediterranean feel to the courtyard. A gate at the far end of the courtyard leads into the main garden- this is split into three sections by box hedges and contains a variety of mature trees.
