Entrance Hall

Walking through the flat entrance you are greeted by a light and spacious ‘L’ shaped hallway which extends throughout the home and provides access to the second bedroom/study, kitchen, bathroom, lounge/diner and master bedroom.

The hallway contains four large storage cupboards, including the unvented water system which supplies high pressure hot & cold water in both the kitchen and bathroom. There are also ample electrical sockets and a landline telephone point, which can offer high speed fibre broadband of speeds up to 76MBps.

Kitchen

11'10 x 6'10
Turning left through the first door off of the hall is the kitchen. Refurbished in 2011 it features wall mounted, and ground level, cabinets finished in a red gloss laminate. The floor is tiled with Black Starlight Quartz Sparkle Tiles, and the walls are finished with white ‘brick shaped’ tiles and white painted walls, granite effect work surfaces. Integrated appliances consist of dishwasher, fridge/freezer, smeg cooker and ceramic hob and extractor hood. South facing double glazed window. There are also lots of electrical sockets for all of your kitchen gadgets

Bedroom Two

11'11 x 9
Opposite the kitchen is the second double bedroom and/or study. The space has been ingeniously utilised with the introduction of a ‘wall bed’ which simply folds away flat against the wall when not in use, or can be kept permanently down. This allows the space to be used for multiple purposes, bedroom, study or dining room. Double glazed window with a north westerly aspect, which keeps the bedroom cool in the summer. Aerial television point and night storage heater.

Bathroom

Past the second bedroom on the right is the bathroom which has been tastefully decorated in natural travertine stone tiles from floor to ceiling. The pedestal, bath, and w/c compliment the travertine in a neutral white. Waterfall and traditional shower (high pressure) with independent controls fall over the bath tub.

Lounge

16'11 x 11'11
Opposite the bathroom, across the hallway, is a good sized lounge/diner. Decorated in 2011 a feature wall stretches the length of the room and finishes at the large south westerly facing double glazed window, and door providing access to the balcony. The balcony is large and finished with travertine effect tiles. During the summer the sun catches the balcony from midday to dusk. The lounge also features a southerly facing side aspect window which allows natural light in throughout the morning. There are satellite and aerial points with plenty of electrical sockets. Heating is provided by a night storage heater which is soon to be replaced by an infrared heating panel, which offer energy efficient heating, and are only 22mm thick.

Master Bedroom

12'11 x 11'10
