This stunning historic townhouse has been expertly finished to an exceptional standard both inside and out. Once a classical gentleman’s residence, this twelve-bedroom private home has been lovingly restored using local craftsmen and artisans to create a property that balances the heritage of its architecture with contemporary design and comfort.

Featuring natural colours and materials, the reception rooms are perfect for relaxing in all year round. In the large winter living room, an open fireplace stands beneath a stone arched ceiling to create a warm and cosy vibe, while an elegant library opens onto a central courtyard. Meals are prepared in the stylish kitchen, which is perfect for entertaining with a central island and farmhouse-style table. This room has large bi-folding doors that open onto an elegant terrace area with a charcoal BBQ and separate open fireplace for al fresco dining. More formal meals can be prepared in the industrial prep kitchen and enjoyed beneath stunning chandeliers in the atmospheric winter dining room. Each of the twelve double bedrooms has been wonderfully finished with carefully chosen antique furniture and en-suite bath or shower rooms.

This property has been cleverly designed to optimise its outdoor space. The stunning rooftop terraces are perfect for a range of uses from yoga classes to peaceful reading hideaways and al fresco dining. Take a refreshing dip in the outdoor pool, which is open to guests all year round, or simply relax with a delicious drink from the nearby bar as the sun sets over the town. With two massage/treatment rooms, a meditation room and a games room with pool table, this property is the perfect choice for a wide range of events, celebrations and holidays.
