FRENCH PROVENCAL MANOR HOUSE
Inspired by dignity, elegance and sophisticated restraint of French Provencal architecture, it is an honour to present this exceptional property and loving family home.
The owners have created an oasis filled with lavender, white iceberg roses, tall conifer trees elegantly merged with this tastefully adorned residence. Cherished memories have been forged in this home which is clearly evident when we engaged with the owners and one can immediately embrace their serene love and the meticulous manner in which the home is presented. The picture-perfect entrance as well as the secondary carriage porch, stone cladding, vintage blue shutters and water features are the most pleasing to one’s eye, igniting sheer delight to step inside the residence. The vast receiving entrance hall displays the elegant staircase to the first floor and separates the formal and informal living spaces of the home. The east wing of this floor accommodates a guest cloakroom, traditional wine room with domed ceiling as well as the stately informal dining room inter-leading to the formal lounge.
