                      Owner info

                      About the owner: I am a retired medical doctor and my wife Ann is a retired company director. We live in a victorian cottage in rural Suffolk, England that we share with two cats!

                      Why the Owner Chose Rotonda West:
                      We built this house as our second home with everything in it as we wanted it to be. Having had villa holidays in many countries we were continually drawn back to Rotonda and so it seemed the logical place to build our dream home.
