The large master bedroom, which also comprises an antique desk with a view of the garden, and the living-room with gallery open onto a sheltered veranda with an unbroken view of the lush garden.

The veranda is equipped with comfortable recliners and an antique round dining table. 

The house is home to an Anglo-German couple for half of the year.
