Four bedroom penthouse occupying a commanding location in this interesting historical building conversion. Spacious rooms over two storeys benefit from tall ceilings and large windows, which gives the property a wonderful light and airy feel, and enjoys country views over rooftops to hills beyond.

The well presented accommodation centres around a fantastic open plan living family room with kitchen area, with plenty of space for the whole family. On the same floor are two double bedrooms, one with a fabulous walk-in wardrobe, and a family bathroom. These rooms have the flexibility for other uses such as a study or separate dining room, as desired. Upstairs is the master bedroom with ensuite shower and fourth bedroom/study. Outside there is allocated off street parking and a beautifully maintained communal garden, outside store, and staircase rising two storeys to the private entrance hall of the property.
