The Main House


With a foot print of 300m2, the main house was taken back to a bare shell and then restored to an excellent standard with a large amount of quality detail both hidden and visible. The house has been completely re-plumbed and re-wired. All light switches and power points are soft touch and made of wood. The ground floor has Italian wall lighting throughout and designer center piece lights hanging from the beamed ceilings. Upstairs has 12 volt spot lighting and Italian wall lighting.

A small stone built outbuilding houses the pool equipment and hot water / central heating boiler which runs 16 newly installed radiators and 3 towel rails each with thermo-static valves. The dining room, entrance hall and sitting room are equipped with Norwegian Jotul wood burning stoves. These can heat the house without needing the central heating in the winter months.

With the exception of the kitchen, the ground floor boasts a suspended oak floor above an insulated multi foil / foam layered membrane beneath. The roof has been afforded the same multi foil insulation as the ground floor allowing all roof timbers to be visible, thereby retaining much of the original character of the residence.
