The living room is another well proportioned entertaining space with a fitted bar, seating area and a further set of French doors. It also provides access to the gym, a storage area, the cloakroom and the integral garage.
Bedroom three is located to the right of the hallway and has fitted wardrobes, bedroom four has a dual aspect with a fitted wardrobe, bedroom five has a window to the front and also has fitted wardrobes with overhead storage, and bedroom six is currently being used as a study, with a window to the side.
