The house exudes charm and soul and requires no additional work. The current owners (a landscape gardener and an artist) have poured their creativity into it, retaining many quirky original features such as exposed stone walls, and added new chestnut wood beamed ceilings. Two ancient cork oak trees stand sentinel at each side of the house, giving the feeling that you are living in a luxury tree house. The result is a living space that literally hugs you and doesn’t let go. This property has to be seen to fully appreciate how special it is.
