On the left side of the entrance, we find a good-sized hallway with cabinets, a bathroom with access to the outside and a study.
Also on this floor, with separate independent access, through an amazing arched glazed door, is a large room with cross-vaulted ceiling, currently used as a gym.
The ground floor is characterized by several French doors which provide continuity between the indoor and outdoor spaces.
Upstairs there is a large fully-equipped kitchen with 2 doors leading outside, a living room with fireplace and the sleeping area with 2 good sized bedrooms, a bathroom and the principal bedroom with en-suite bathroom.
The sleeping area boasts parquet floors. From the kitchen it is possible to access the back garden with nice pergola, this area provides a cool and refreshing place to escape from the summer heat, where you can also enjoy al fresco meals and cool breezes.
Next to the kitchen entrance there is also an original wood oven, perfect for making your own pizza and bread.
The annex (90 sqm) has also been renovated, and a perfect guesthouse for family or friends.
