There are two large spaces with their own bathroom on the first level. The external stairs situated under a beautiful wooden roof will lead to two independent apartments. Each has enough space to house a small family.

Move to the upper level, there’s a wider space with greater dimensions that can house a bigger family. This space has more than one bedrooms and bathrooms. There’s also a large open area housing living room, dining space, and kitchen area.

Two terraces with wooden floors are included on this floor. One of them can be accessed through the living room or the kitchen area. The other terrace is set at the main entrance where we can see the adjacent spaces. The terrace also provides a setting where we would love to spend time with family and friends.
