If this lovely cottage reminds you of Switzerland, that's not a surprise. We are told it was built for the wife of the Swiss ambassador in the 1960s as a reminder of her homeland. And from its steep pitched slate roof to the windowboxes on the rendered walls and the shutters on the windows, it has that delightful feel of a true mountain home. It'll have you yodelling in no time.

To make the most of the gentle slope it is built on, there is an enclosed balcony at the rear, overlooking the established camelias and enough fruit trees to be called an orchard.

There's a workshop underneath.

Two comfortable bedrooms, a stylish wood panelled lounge/dining area, a classic old bathroom and a small kitchen complete the current living space.

However, if you wanted more, an attic conversion (STCA) could be a real option.

And, with R2 zoning and 949sqms of land, there is also the possibility of further development.
