A charming Tuscan brick cottage with private balcony and scenic views

Charming Self-Contained Cottage with Private Balcony

Private Charming Self Contained Cottage

The romantic cottage is brick built and is set apart, overlooking a graceful grass bed and the swimming pool. Originally the little house had been a bakers’ oven but now it has been converted into a charming private retreat for a romantic couple or a teenage den or separate accommodation for a nanny or cook.

The double bedroom has its own sunny terrace with lemon trees in pots and sweet-smelling herbs all round it. There is a compact kitchen fully equipped with a cooker, microwave and fridge. The compact shower room has a carved Travertino marble sink and shower tray, the walls are lined in Salome marble.

The final touch is an upstairs escape to read and relax with a day bed and lovely views through the traditional lattice brick work. The cosy sitting room has a semi-circular window and a wooden day bed. The cottage has solar heating throughout.
