Off the central entrance hall are the two double bedrooms, the master having an en suite shower room and the second enjoying a dual-aspect, as well as the bathroom. Both bedrooms overlook the flat’s private garden which is enclosed and offers a good degree of privacy.

located to the side of the building which is shared with only one other flat.

the bay window with working shutters. The kitchen/diner also benefits from a bay window
with the same outlook. The master bedroom is an excellent size and benefits from an en suite shower room.
