Full Description

Contemporary architect designed detached wooden house set in 1600m2 of land, offering over 260m2of habitable space comprising 4/5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a huge open plan living space, extensive terraces, pool, garage and large utility room.

The property has been designed so that all the living spaces and bedrooms have views of the surrounding countryside, with large expanses of glass opening onto fabulous terraces which are almost as extensive as the interior living space. In addition, the house is situated on a raised elevation to take advantage of the stunning views of the open countryside, in a peaceful location on the outskirts of the village with only 2 other houses in the vicinity.

Accessed from the garage below or through a raised front door, the visitor arrives in a vast open plan living room, with large double sliding glass doors on one elevation, a contemporary kitchen and dining area. A hallway currently used as a playroom leads to the master bedroom with attached bathroom, and the three other bedrooms, one of which has an en-suite bathroom too. There is also a family bathroom and separate Wc here. Accessed directly from the living room is an office, which could double as a fifth bedroom.

The extensive wooden terraces around the house give the living space a much bigger feel. The terraces continue around the pool and summer kitchen, which are completely private.

Below the terracing is the garage with parking for two cars, as well as a large utility room/cellar.

This high end property is designed to take advantage of its special location, whilst at the same time offering topnotch contemporary living with all luxury amenities.
