Our beautiful home is comfortable, clean, and spacious. It has a very well equipped kitchen with adjoining dining room. The house is very open and bright and has two large bedrooms (one ensuite) with double beds and a child's bedroom with a cotbed. We have a large family bathroom with separate power shower and bath.

The house is surrounded by breathtaking views of hills, peatlands, trees and lakes. The house has its own private driveway, with decked area facing West to watch the sunset. We love spending time in our home and having friends over, it is warm and inviting.
