Adjacent to this is the principal double bedroom - which has been sub-divided into two with an interconnecting door all of which is easily removable - and benefitting from two sliding mirror-fronted double built-in wardrobes.

Enjoying the southerly aspect is a gracious sitting room with panelled ceiling and period mouldings with a deep bay window which takes in the view. Off this living space double doors lead into the kitchen, with a range of units with built in oven and hob and a space for a fridge, and a half glazed doors leads out onto the covered balcony which is L’ shaped and captures a due south aspect.Outside there is a communal parking area for the building. To the side elevation via a pedestrian path is an outside bin store.
