At the far end of the landing is the master bedroom with two windows to the front, wooden floorboards and a built-in wardrobe and a door leading to the en-suite shower room. There are three further bedrooms all with stripped floorboards, feature beams and built-in cupboards. The two bedrooms facing the rear of the property also benefit from additional roof windows which flood the rooms with natural light. the family bathroom has travertine style tiles throughout, a bath, WC, basin, and separate shower enclosure.
To the front of the property a driveway leads to a large paved courtyard which offers parking and a patio area which can be accessed directly from the French doors in the sitting room.
