A feature mantelpiece frames the room, creating a focal point for arranging the space, whilst a large picture window bathes the entire area in warm sunlight.

Integrated appliances could fit into the future design for clean lines and a streamlined finish. Two double bedrooms, one with built-in storage, enjoy generous proportions for various bedside furnishings. The first bedroom is peacefully located to the rear, whilst the second is front facing. A naturally-lit bathroom accommodates a three-piece suite completing the home. Gas central heating and double glazing ensure year round comfort.
Outside, the flat benefits from a private lawned garden for summer socialising and there is ample, unrestricted on-street parking directly in front of the home.
