The property is in a well maintained and original condition, retaining many original features such as marble fireplaces, beautiful floor tiles, double wooden doors and ornate high ceilings.

Ground floor: an impressive hallway leads to two large salons and a kitchen. A separate hallway leads to the old doctor's surgery and to the garden.

Second floor: there are 4 further bedrooms and a bathroom.

Outside: To the back of the house is a mature garden with a central stone water feature. A period 'serre' or greenhouse in steel and glass makes an interesting feature in the garden. There is a well that supplies the fountain and the watering system.

The property also benefits from a garage of around 90m2 with an upper floor, which is accessed from the road behind the house.
