This absolutely charming property, is situated in the picturesque village of Paradou, just a couple of minutes’ walk from the village amenities, yet off the main road in a quiet and private location. Converted from the original stone house, it has been extended and restored to the highest of standards with enormous taste and flair. Unusually for a village house, there is a wonderful feeling of space, both inside and out.
There is a parking area outside the property, and entrance is down a gravel pathway, through the lawned garden with cypress trees and an old well. To one side of the garden, a stone wall protects the swimming pool terrace on two sides. The pool is 11 x 3m and has an electric cover. At the front of the house and overlooking the garden and pool is a lovely terrace, furnished with seating areas and an outdoor dining area with teak table and chairs.
The rooms have all been decorated in neutral colours and original features include exposed beamed ceilings, stone fireplaces and the stone staircase in the oldest section of the house. The bedrooms, on the first floor, have either wooden floors, or the original old floor tiles. The kitchen and bathrooms are brand new, yet in keeping with the period feel of the house, and are very well equipped.
Amenities include satellite television and DVD. The caretaker lives in the next door property.
