Evening meals available at an extra cost.

It has a desk and chair, a low table, cushions on the floor and 2 armchairs.
The main multi-purpose shared living area has an extensive library with over 1000 books on art and design, poetry, history, architecture, philosophy, psychology, music, health, etc with my studio space at one end.
The back outside patio has seats around a chiminea and a table and chairs to sit and work/eat.
