Fornells by name, Fornells by nature.
Situated in the most convenient of locations, a stone's throw from the Station (Waterloo 38 mins.) and within the Howard of Effingham catchment is Fornells, as equally a comfortable family home as a “party palace” and, like its namesake, full of Mediterranean warmth and atmosphere, which simply has to be viewed to fully appreciate.
They say a picture paints a thousand words & pictorially we have set out samples of what delights lie beyond the front door. However, these and words, such as, ‘Spacious reception areas, including large lounge with focal point fireplace, great sized conservatory beyond, separate study, utility and modern kitchen; 3 double bedrooms and fully equipped bathroom on the first floor’, all sound rather bland when compared to the real thing! Especially as this is merely where the adventure begins.
Stepping out through the rear kitchen door delivers one into a semi-alfresco loggia, perfectly positioned and fabulously private for romantic bistro dining as well as somewhere for 'chef' to take coffee breaks, the perfect spot for a log-burner for all year round enjoyment. The remainder of the outside spaces are likewise arranged as a series of 'rooms':
The second, definitely for grown-ups (or certainly after dark around the fire-pit), features quality sand, beach-rock garden, lots of space for easy lounging or garden games & activities, and even a well-equipped, thatched bar with Chimenea BBQ opposite. (Daytime patrons however should bring their own buckets & spades!).
Then onto the Detached Studio! Eminently suitable for a variety of uses, this building comprises a large open plan living-kitchenette-dining area with space to accommodate a double bed, plus shower room with W.C. It then opens out at the rear via a second set of French doors onto a decked courtyard garden, offering yet more brilliantly private social dining or sunbathing, with extra space to fit a dipping-pool/hot tub, trampoline or table tennis table. Perfect for the little (and not so little) kids!
In other words, Fornells has something for everyone and whilst 'space' doesn't do its versatility and charm enough justice, suffice to say that the conventional 'rule book' is long dispatched and so for anyone seeking a truly individual home and year-round “holiday feeling” - this is one not to miss.
