A door from the house's living area leads to a terrace and then up some steps to the back garden, which is beautifully landscaped, private and not overlooked.

A winding path through the garden leads beyond the decking to a studio which has electricity and which is currently used as a micro-brewery.

The house is situated in a quiet location, with a garden that is private and not overlooked. The property is two minutes walk from the town centre. The garden is a key feature of the property, having been carefully landscaped to provide seating areas in sun or shade and make the most of the stunning scenery. To quote the owner "Apart from the wonderful views from inside and out, the lively town and the private garden, the apartment is a key feature. The revenue easily pays all the household bills for very little work from us. It is a lovely house to live in and if it wasn't for the pull of grandchildren, we'd be staying!"
