The 16 ft kitchen has a lovely bright seating area and a door links to the TV room at the back of the house which has a further set of doors to the rear courtyard. An inner lobby with built-in cupboards off the kitchen provides useful external access to the side of the house.
First FloorA fully carpeted staircase leads to the first-floor landing which is airy and bright by virtue of the 2 large windows on the stairwell and a further window on the landing itself. The master bedroom enjoys built in wardrobes, a balcony with sliding door and an extremely spacious ensuite. The remaining bedrooms have use of the family bathroom which has a bath, separate shower cubicle, sink and WC. Bedroom 2 enjoys a double aspect with views over the front and rear gardens and also has built in storage.
