  • Set within a land area known as "Le Jardin d'Amour" since 1650 and originally built in 1888, this beautiful Victorian Villa has been superbly and sensitively renovated by the current owner in recent times, including new wiring, plumbing, lime pointing and plaster, using a UK conservation builder. The result is a quite beautiful home laid out over three floors and offering three bedrooms serviced by two bathrooms together with two ground floor reception rooms and a lovely Vine House that was rebuilt just two years ago. For those requiring more space, plans have also been approved for a two storey extension to the rear. The gardens are, as you would expect given the name, equally stunning. An organic garden which has been professionally landscaped, it has won a conservation award in recent times and is home to an abundance of wildlife together whilst planted with a multitude of mature trees, all of which combine to provide privacy, interest, and shelter throughout the one acre plot. A real gem of a home in a quite stunning, quiet location.
