A deceptively large
detached house with six bedrooms and 9,520 square metres of land for

driveway which leads to the rear of the house and plenty of off road
parking. The property has metal framed windows and doors and there
are some integral roller shutters. The window and door surrounds are
marble and there is a covered portico to the main entrance on the
first floor, which is accessed via an exterior staircase.

over two floor and although traditionally the living accommodation

adapted the ground floor from storage to habitation, though some
updating would be desirable.
There is a double
opening metal entrance door to the ground floor. This leads into the
property's adega (wine store). The adega has a tiled floor and a
wine crushing vat to one corner. The current owners of the property
have been utilising this room as a living room cum dining room.
There is also a wooden staircase which leads to the first floor
accommodation within this room. Internal access to the garage is
also via this adega.
A small hallway,
which also has a vinyl floor covering provides access to the first

a built in base level unit to one wall. The second kitchen has a
tiled floor, partially tiled walls and built in base level open
fronted units. There is a stainless steel sink and drainer and the
work surfaces are marble. This kitchen also has a part glazed
exterior access door which leads out to the rear of the property.
Off the kitchen there is a partially tiled bathroom. The bathroom
has a walk in shower, toilet, bidet and pedestal sink.
There are five good

which leads to the exterior staircase at the front of the house.
There is a partially tiled bathroom to this floor, which has a bath,
toilet, bidet and pedestal sink. In addition to this there are a
further two rooms to the first floor, both of which act like
hallways and both of which have wooden floors. One of these rooms
houses the staircases to the ground floor and attic. The second room
