Room 3 is a fully furnished kitchen overlooking a private terrace for the use of guests.

It took us four years to bring the house back to its original glory and we believe we have found the perfect balance between the modern and traditional, salvaging and incorporating as many period features as possible in this splendid house Which now offers all the practical benefits of an Entirely new building. In accordance with the latest eco-principles, we chose to focus Particularly on healthy, natural building materials, primarily hemp and clay.
