The gardens, which wrap around the property, have been beautifully landscaped with clean lines, crisp paving and softened with verdant planting.  The garden is fully enclosed with feather edge fencing, offering seclusion throughout. The main part of the garden is South facing and is predominately laid to lawn with a multi stem olive tree as a focal point. In one corner is a large patio area laid with Italian porcelain outdoor tiles and offering plenty of space for outdoor furniture and entertaining.  A stepped terrace, again with porcelain tiles, runs along the south side of the property and can be accessed from the principal bedroom, sitting room and kitchen/dining/family room. The paving continues to the rear of the property where there is ample space for additional garden furniture along with a hot tub (available by separate negotiation). The exterior benefits from hard wired lighting.
