About our home

Our 400 year old limestone house of character mixes ancient features with contemporary design elements that make it a rare find on the island. It is built around a spacious central courtyard. The rooms are well lit and breezy. There's a stylish concrete structure on the roof serving as semi-walled roof-garden. The property has is set on three floors. On the ground floor one finds a large entrance hall, new, custom built wood and concrete kitchen and a large living room with many original features. On the first floor there are two bedrooms on opposite ends of a landing and study. They are large and each contain a walk-in and bathroom. On the second floor there is a washroom, roof, and roof garden.

The house comes fully furnished and equipped. All the furniture is hand-made locally based on our designs or imported from Denmark. The kitchen is brand new and fitted with a two door fridge and freezer, dishwasher, microwave and oven. There are ACs in the first floor bedrooms and wi-fi all through the house.
