What makes this estate so special is all of the impressive features.  An inviting oversized heated swimming pool is warmed by a special heating element brought from the United States. A shallow, hydro massage pool makes this a wonderfully relaxing way to spend an afternoon and the small pool also doubles as a swimming area for children. Ample space around the swimming pool, plus a changing room, a separate shower and an individual bathroom make pool time easy and accessible without having to go into the house with wet bathing suits. 

When you're ready to entertain friends and family, there are two barbeque areas -- one near the home for small family gatherings, and another second outdoor kitchen, grill, and pizza oven housed in a hilltop gazebo with spectacular 180-degree views of the valley.  There is also a separate enclosed party room for weddings, birthdays and special occasions. A large soccer field invites both pros and amateur sports fans to come and "play" or enjoy the country match from the sidelines with your favorite beer or beverage.

There are two large reservoirs on the estate that service the many irrigation systems throughout the property. Tilapia, found in both ponds, can be fished, cleaned and thrown on the grill after one of those great soccer matches!
