Stepping inside, high ceilings add to the feeling of spaciousness, while large windows allow ample natural light to fill each room. A sense of sophistication and grandeur are present throughout the property thanks to the carefully chosen finishes, including hardwood and porcelain tiled floors.

The layout of No 1 is a little out of the ordinary, with living areas on the first floor and bedrooms on the ground floor. This switched-around design means the living areas are elevated, maximising views of the beautiful surroundings.

The open-plan kitchen, dining and living room is cleverly laid out to accommodate both family life and entertaining, with views of the front courtyard on one side and of the golf course on the other.

There’s plenty of storage space in the kitchen thanks to sleek floor and wall units, while polished marble work surfaces make for the perfect space to prepare meals.
