It is still a special house though. Despite its looks, this house dates from 1950, sitting in one acre of land, with a further 2.5 acres available separately. But even without this, the location gives ‘total privacy’ to any potential buyer.

It is also ‘continually bathed in natural light’, with some pretty good views you suspect too from that huge balcony area. We can’t see inside, but we do know it has four bedrooms and four bathrooms and looking at it, probably some generous reception space too.
