The architect has created a mezzanine floor with large void areas with vaulted ceilings to provide a feeling of tremendous space

      The sitting room is the principal reception room with bi-fold doors leading out onto the central courtyard and a vaulted ceiling ensures that the room is spectacular, particularly with the cantilevered mezzanine gallery which overlooks it. The kitchen/dining room is beautifully fitted by Dream Design, again with a mezzanine level over and vaulted ceiling it is a spectacular room with a door that leads into the wine cellar.
