The front door opens to a split-level living room with traditional Santa Catarina tile floors and plenty of windows to let in light. A small step leads down a snug lounge area with wood-burning fireplace and patio doors out to the terrace. The terrace has a spacious covered patio and boasts lovely views over the pool and established gardens with plenty of mature trees and plants.
