Downstairs has both a one bedroom studio style apartment, (which is currently being used as the owners accommodation/office, but could be converted into a fully self contained unit, by simply adding a cooker, and a fridge) and a spacious two bedroom apartment, having two large double rooms, an very large family size bathroom, with full disabled access facilities, a large lounge area, and a kitchenette with cooker fridge sink etc. Therefore either the one or two bedroom apartments could be utilized as owners accommodation, depending on your needs.

There is a commercial style large kitchen, currently used to serve the guests breakfasts and evening meals by request.

A door leading from the kitchen area takes you into a large, unrenovated coach house, which could be converted, in the future, into anything from, extra accommodation, extra storage space, or whatever you felt would suit you best.
The courtyard has a large iron gate leading through to a ramped pathway to the outside and the large free-form swimming pool with swim up bar, and sunbathing terrace. This property, even has its own well with an electric pump, which supplies the whole property with mountain spring water. Enough to supply the entire property, pool, everything - there's no shortage, or water bills to consider. The electricity supply has been upgraded to accommodate the demand of a busy commercial kitchen, so there are no power issues either.
The house is fully centrally heated, throughout to allow for the winter months, powered by a large commercial diesel boiler, that provides plenty of hot water, round the clock if required, which can be thermostatically controlled, and has a "summer" setting to keep costs down.
