Large glass patio doors lead from the front terrace to the living room which has a comfortable sitting area, with settee and television, there is a separate fully equipped kitchen, a shower room, and washing machine. Stairs lead to a first floor bedroom with double bed, and ensuite shower room. The owner has a added some family possessions creating a personal feel to the furnishings, and examples of her lovely crochery work are framed and adorn the white washed walls of the house.
At the front of the house there is a large terrace, the former threshing floor of the barn, which is furnished with table and chairs for dining alfresco, at the side of the house is a garden area and the second terrace at the rear of the house is a lovely spot for relaxing in the evening, whilst sipping a chilled glass of the local Vernaccia wine whilst watching the sun set over the vineyard covered hills beyond.
