About the owner: We are a family of four with two little girls. We love adventure and are off on our own, leaving this lovely home for you to enjoy. This home was designed by my father who was an architect and was inherited with a long family history attached. Our extended family also owns the next house up the road and all of the land connecting the two. We started to renovate and update it soon after moving in and recently finished.
