This stylish whitewashed villa is fortunate to have off-street parking for several cars. Black railings with a pedestrian gate separate the front garden from the pavement, which is bordered by mature flowerbeds and flowering trees which look glorious when blossoming in the spring. A flight of stone steps leads up to the front door. To the rear there is a real 'Garden of Eden' courtyard garden, tiled with low-maintenance paving slabs and surrounded by high fences. The garden feels wonderfully secluded due to the array of towering palm trees and lush greenery. There is lots of space for garden furniture, a barbecue and sun loungers, with a second raised terrace with storage beneath which would be wonderful as an alfresco breakfast or drinks area.
