You enter through an antique wooden door that brings you into the entrance room. This leads to the comfortable living area, which is furnished with sofas, antique pieces, a large flatscreen TV, home theatre system and a good collection of DVDs and books.
This area extends into a dining area with a long banquet table and open sides so you can enjoy the cool breeze. If it rains you can pull the blinds down for a cosy feel. From here, it is only a few metres to the pool, which with the surrounding garden forms a centerpiece to the property. The surrounding wooden decking extends to the river edge. This is a lovely place to sit in the early evening with a drink in hand and also the perfect spot to hop onto a boat, doughnut or jet ski for some exhilarating watersports.
The villa has five bedrooms including a grand master suite, which has views, through glass doors, to the river beyond.
Deluxe Master Suite
This is a large wooden-floored room with a four-poster bed and en suite bathroom with a his and hers washbasin. For a relaxed afternoon or rainy evening you can enjoy watching a DVD on the flatscreen DVD. The glass doors open onto your own private deck where you can watch the sunset over the river.
The other four rooms are located in pairs either side of the central dining area. They each have their own theme ranging from the ‘Boxing Room’, which has photos of Mohammed Ali on the walls, to the ‘Beatles Rooms’, ‘The Liberation Room’ and ‘The Vietnam Room’. Each has an en suite bathroom with a rain shower.
