We absolutely love the privacy that we are so fortunate to have and we thoroughly enjoy the view from our big windows, every season brings a totally different feel and with it a beautiful view. The kitchen and entertainment areas have been well loved by us, our friends and family with us also having countless evenings out on the terrace. We’ve enjoyed hosting friends and family including at one time the majority of Park Homer Drive in our game/bar room after the annual mystery meal. Ourselves and the children have loved watching films together on a stormy night in the cinema room. Whether it being indoor or outdoor because it’s so spacious the kids can always just be free and happy. We absolutely love the peaceful and calming early mornings, waking up to see the wildlife and animals popping out from the garden to say hello”Important InformationThese particulars are believed to be correct, but their accuracy is not guaranteed.
