Please Note

Note: the house is semi-detached but the other portion is incomplete and unoccupied, so the garden is completely private for occupiers of Villa Rafina. There will be no building work scheduled for the adjacent house.

Note: Villa Rafina has a marble floor in the living room and an open marble staircase (no banister). This may present a hazard to very young children and care should be taken.
