The building is constructed from local stone with some colombage and a tiled roof (in excellent condition). The house and outbuildings form an L-shape, creating an interesting front garden / courtyard area. Steps from the front of the house lead down to the front garden. To the rear of the house are steps and a pathway which lead down into the wooded valley.
