The villa is need of some refurbishment, perhaps making it an excellent opportunity for someone looking to add value for resale or to create a home, and it has some interesting features, including an indoor well - and a built-in hot tub. The house, which is extended at the back on both floors, offers good family accommodation with five bedrooms, three reception rooms, kitchen, utility, shower room, bathroom, and the hot tub room.
