There is a second storage room which is used to house garden tools etc. and a purpose built kennel for four dogs.
Outside there is a large and long shaded terrace for outside dining which gives onto a garden area with a pool-shaped water storage tank. In the large paved area before the house, large enough to park (say) 6 cars, is a small, natural form swimming pool.
Near to the house is a fabulous large fenced vegetable garden planted with a wide variety of vegetables, sufficient to feed the house and with enough spare to sell to local restaurants. This area is fully irrigated with an automated system.
