It consists of a garage at ground level with an open staircase up to the utility room which is used for producing our house wine.
Sports equipment is stored here. It also includes a toilet and shower room.
It has a sink unit, table and chairs and a microwave oven.
There is a door leading to yet another staircase up to this

The utility room includes toilet and shower rooms, casual eating area with microwave oven, sink and storage and has stairs up to the bedroom above and open stairs down to the garage.
There are two parking areas at the front of the house, one at the end of the front terrace, the other at pool level with automatic gates and lights. The garage houses two mountain bikes for the use of guests and relics of vintage agricultural equipment. There is an open wooden staircase to the two upper floors and the Observation platform.
