This room could easily be transformed into a kitchen/lounge which would then give a self contained guest suite, having an individual external entrance as well as the communicating door to the kitchen.

There are two sun terraces, one having a covered pergola area under which is a jacuzzi/hot tub. Both terraces enjoying the stunning views.and overlooking the mature gardens.
